Middle-Age Dating - Tips on Finding a Partner After 40


Do you wonder what are the odds of you finding a date; subsequently, how would you end up finding a partner after 40? You realize dating is challenging as compared when you were much younger. To help you, here are 5 middle-age dating tips on finding a partner after 40.

Leverage on Your Age
You do not have to look your age. Be smart on selecting what you wear. Do not choose clothes that someone 20 years older than you would pick. If you still have your hairstyle as if it is still the 80's, try changing your hairdresser. Do physical activities which interest you such as dancing, outdoor sports, yoga, etc. Catch up with your reading. After 40, you can dress and act like you are younger, but, think wiser.

Be Busy, Not Crazy Busy
Focus on your work. This will prevent you from thinking and feeling sorry that you have not met your partner after 40. Spend time for yourself and, your friends; but, be open to meeting new people to add to your circle. Take time to go on vacation. Taking time off re-energizes your spirit. You would look calm and refreshed. If you are too busy, you are blocking someone from showing up in your life. How do you imagine adding someone to spend time with if your calendar is booked?

Do Not Lower Your Standards
The dilemma that most singles after 40 worry about (particularly women), is that, they would not find anyone. They would be doomed to singlehood for the rest of their life. In effect, they would be more likely willing to settle to whoever is available. This is not going to be beneficial. Bear in mind that changing anyone is out of the question.

Let Go of Your Ex
Alexander Graham Bell quoted that, "when one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us." Similarly, when you keep your attention to what you missed or how you have been hurt, you are not in a welcoming mode. Clean up your emotional baggage. Simultaneously, consider disposing personal effects related to your ex no matter how much you value them. This is a great way to signify that you are free from attachment.

Act Only When Inspired
The common denominator that happens to singles after 40 is that they become serious in finding a partner. In this present time and age, there are more opportunities to meet other singles. You name it...scout in online dating sites, Facebook, speed dating events, and dating agencies among others. Not satisfied with these choices, some recruit their friends' help in their quest. All of these activities, done collectively, beget desperation. When you come from this state, it would reflect in your persona. Do things that would make you joyful like petting your dog, listening to music, walking in the park or doing something creative. Once you are inspired, then, you can use any of the aforementioned search channels but with no expectation.

Life is Short
There is no time for brooding. Be in charge of your destiny. Enjoy every moment after 40. In time, you would find someone if you practice these 5 middle-age dating tips on finding a partner after 40.
