It's always good to break out of the singlehood veil and try a new flavour in life.
TAKE A LOOK: Habits That Hurt Your Relationship So it's been too long since you went out and dated?
Life begins at 40, they say and it seems to be pretty true!
Take some advice from a gal who has been there, finally figured “the man-thing out,” got married at 47 and now enjoys a stellar relationship with the perfect man…for me. I mean, after all, if every man you meet is unworthy then there is no risk you’ll actually start dating or get in a relationship!
There are two things you can do that will immediately improve your experience with men: 1. Know what you want and must have, and make sure it’s the “Grownup You” doing the picking; not the 18-year-old who still expects all kinds of wacky things that no longer matter and wouldn’t make you happy anyway. Aren’t your “quirks” what you want men to love about you? • How does this belief impact your actions (or inaction), and how is that affecting your outcomes? Yep, that’s a surefire way to avoid ever being hurt or rejected.
Some men are lucky enough to find their soul mates and grow old with them. The divorce rates should prove that there are more men finding themselves single again (maybe even for the second and third time) when they reach their 40s or 50s.
It is really frustrating to find oneself thinking and wondering what went wrong; and a lot more depressing finding yourself looking for someone new to be with.
It is possible you have forgotten how to be with a girl or what to do on a date. Just get ready to impress her and sweep her off the feet.
Our dating advice for men over 40 will help you do the rest.
When Dave married Sue, his high school sweetheart, he envisioned the typical marriage scenario.
He dreamed of a big house with a white picket fence, a couple of kids, career growth, prosperity, grandkids, retirement and maybe even adjacent burial plots. Now their youngest child left for college and Sue filed for divorce.
The Need to Have a Partner Humans have this perpetual need to be loved, cared for and have company.
It is simply impossible to live alone for the rest of your life, especially so if you have been used to spending every day and every night with a long time partner.
There will come a time in a man’s life when everything he has worked and settled for will be turned upside down.
