This blog is for all those who find themselves dating at a time when they thought they would be settled down and never have to think about this again! While dating at any age can be challenging and frustrating at times, dating in your 40’s and beyond has unique challenges. I invite readers to share their thoughts and experiences and get the conversation going! The main focus of this blog will be finding the right person, not the nuances after a relationship has been established.
Let’s face it, by the time we get to our 40’s we all have some horror stories about dating. Unfortunately, are we get older, it is harder to meet single people in a natural setting. With many relying on dating web sites, it is no wonder so many of us are frustrated! Who has not arrived for a date and not been able to locate the person they are to meet because they look nothing like the picture of the person we thought we were meeting!
Have you already given up on finding Mr. Maybe? That’s right, I did NOT say Mr. Right. At this age, I am not sure there is such a thing as Mr. Right, but Mr. Maybe is definitely out there! I say Mr. Maybe because by our 40’s we have already established lives, careers, habits, and baggage (and yes, we ALL have baggage of some kind). Even when we find that special someone who seems like the perfect match, our already established lives can get in the middle of a relationship and create all kinds of challenges we would not have had in our earlier dating years. Let’s have fun with this subject! After all, isn’t dating in your 40’s sometimes a comedy? We have to laugh and enjoy our lives, so let’s do it together!
