You would think as an older individual who is single and datng you'll not be hung up on silly little things like race. But to some it still plays a vital role in the decisions they make and it also limits their options. Oftentimes they let people who refuse to back out of their life make choices for them that they later regret. You don't want to be this kind of person.
The biggest thing is probably going to be the people in your life, who you would think at an older age would have the common sense to know you can make your own choices and that they choices you make are done out of your best judgment, but sometimes it doesn't go this way. So you need to think to yourself a little before you decide to go through with interracial dating, even as a mature dating adult. Ask yourself some of these important questions.
1.) How far are you willing to let it go?
Being more mature is all about knowing that you can have fun with anybody, even if they are of another race, it doesn't make sense to have the same issues as an older individual. But I can understand you being older and having limited options, you may feel by expanding the race of the people you date it will make for more dating opportunities, and it will. You need to ask yourself though just how far are you willing to let it go. Are you just having fun? Do you have an intention of introducing this person to your family and friends? If you don't then you need to make sure they know this.
2.) Are the people in your life going to play a role?
The people in your life may play such a big role that you'll ask yourself is it really worth it. Of course it is going to be worth it. Being a mature dating adult means you are capable of making these choices for yourself. The people in your life should be happy that you're happy. If they can't see this then you need to question just how much they supposedly care for you because it might not be as much as you think. Dating interracially doesn't have to be such a hassle. It is usually just made so by people around you who wish to control your life.
3.) Would progressing it rock your world?
Do you feel like if you decided to move forward it would change your whole life? Even if this is the case does it have to be a bad thing? You are older, more mature, and as a mature dating adult you reserve every right to date whoever the hell you want. If you decided to marry them, have kids with them, or do whatever with them then it is your business.
As someone who is mature and looking for other senior singles you should have the courage to say the heck with all the people around you who may not agree with what you are doing, so as long as you're happy is all that matters.
