13 Tips For Dating In Your 40s

So, once again, your mental age is what really counts here. One Reddit user wrote that her husband is nine years older than her, and everything is great—except for his decreasing libido. “I’m now at the age that he was when we first met (I’m 31) and I feel like I’m in my prime but we just don’t get to do it like we did when he was 31,” she wrote. But I cannot see that it would last, or really be based on anything other than sex.

Keep bowling playing pool or monthly dinner with friends. This I’ll just enhance your relationship. And for those women that get intimidated because men might set their search pool for ladies age 35-50, it doesn’t mean in reality, it means 35-50! So if you’re 50, write us back already. We have to set the floor somewhere, and that floor is usually past prime child bearing years for guys my age. I have to agree with all the “types” mentioned.

The few that ever wrote to me I did not find attractive in the least, but I would reply that I am not interested instead of just tossing their message in the trash like how it is done to me. I decided that once I turn fifty I’m calling it quits, if I couldn’t attract a women when I was thirty I’m definitely not going to be able to at fifty and again, it’s to late for children of my own. I may be really fit and I definitely look younger, but I’m not going to be able to attract a women significantly younger that wants kids, especially one who shares my activity level. Rebecca, you are highly underestimating yourself and your ‘worthiness’ as a partner for some nice man.

Relationship expert Dr. Juliana Morris says love connections at an older age can be even more profound. “Personally, I think it’s weird. A 19-year-old is basically fresh outta high school, barely an adult mentally. A 30-year-old is a full-grown adult who is way older, mentally and physically.” I am dating a man exactly 26 years older, and I am 44. Age or gender has nothing to do with that.

Why Some Younger Men Prefer to Be With Older Women

I mean I could go on but you can see where this is going. You know that dating after 40 (or at any stage of life, for that matter!) is not exactly a rose garden every moment.

To have someone help me and do it without bitching would be amazing. And to have someone in my life that didn’t try to attack me emotionally, mentally or physically, or anything I owned I think I’d have to pinch myself, and would have to remind myself to even Breathe! I was married 22 years to someone that I thought was an honorable man, who went from Jeckel to Hyde. I don’t see the same research as you, Emily. I’d be happy to see your research though.

If none of this is for you, your best bet is to move on as quickly as possible. To say you want something that you don’t really is just wasting not only your time but that of your date.If you have children, the first date or first many dates is not the time to introduce them. It is wise to wait until you feel that the relationship could move hily com into something committed. Your children may not like your new partner or vice versa. You want to make certain that you have a good foundation laid before you introduce their opinions on the one in which you have fallen in love. Maybe you’re dating after a divorce, and you’re a single mom who needs to carve out the time for a love life.

I get hit on with sexual intention only I can’t even make it to ride my bike so I try to go roller blading or ride my bike and get followed, harassed and when I meet a great guy he only wants sex. I don’t dress slutty, I’ve been married twice like you and if they took time to get to know me would find I’m much prettier in my head and heart than outside. I want to be ugly sometimes to find someone I know talks to me for me. Then to top it off I made good money worked hard at 37 I’m a Business development manager for a major nationwide dealership.

No children, there is no logical reason to date, aside fulfilling an egotistical and self centered purpose. Personally, i see no point in a relationship, if there is no desire toward procreation. My point is, you are not incompatible with all women. You just haven’t yet been able to do a great job of getting to know them before some kind of commitment AND in relationships you’re not understanding each other.

I don’t want what other people want for me. I want what is right for me, and I don’t know what that looks like. I’m not ugly at all, I consider myself average since beauty is in the eye of the beholder. End of this year will be the start of my 8th year without a single date. One of my friends goes “Well men die before women so in the next 5-10 years you can get yourself a widow.” What a depressing thought. I am almost mid 50’s and most my life been a day late and dollar short for women.
