Dating over age 40

08 Apr

(Guys, if you’re reading this…get in touch if you want to share!It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single, attractive, heterosexual woman over the age of 40 must be in need of a man.At e Harmony, we know that finding like-minded singles over 40 can be a challenge, which is why we make sure we really get to know you and find out what you’re looking for in a relationship.When you’re dating over 40, you know what you do and don’t want in a partner, so we make sure we pair you with people who prioritise those things too.Or so Carrie Bradshaw would have you believe; and she is mostly right.But for me, and my three best friends, the key word is “want” rather than need.I’ve talked to countless single men over the years about their experiences with women, especially those in their 40s, 50s and beyond.

So I thought I’d tell you about the experience men have when they’re trying to “date like a grownup.” If you’ve read my e Book, you know that I believe strongly that empathizing with men is absolutely essential to your dating and relationship success.

I am 44 years old and entering the dating scene again for the first time in 25 years. I am not doing the online singles sites…that is just scary to me. I am new in town, with a few happily married friends. So much of my time was taken up with caring for someone else that now I just don’t know how to fill that time. Thanks for highlighting an important principle for women over 40 seeking love: You will not find it unless you do something differently. It’s called Match.com, it’s open 24 hours a day, and it costs a lot less than getting on a plane and hoping to sit next to a 45-year-old eligible bachelor.

I have four grown who are trying to set me up (I love them, but what a nightmare!! I highly suggest you get over your fear of online dating, not because it’s perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but because it’s ubiquitous and effective in creating opportunity.

Whether you're reluctantly single or freshly divorced, finding a suitable date can seem like a daunting task, especially after you graduate from the bar scene.

Your workplace may not be the most appropriate spot to pick up a man, and many of your friends of friends are probably already taken, so where can you find available men once you're over 40? We live so much of our lives through technology nowadays that online dating has lost its stigma, and can be a comfortable format in which to get to know someone before meeting him in person.
