3 Dating Tips for Women Over 40

A lot of things sure do change when you are over the age of 40, and dating is no exception to this. You’ve probably found that it’s just not quite the same as it was when you were in your twenties or even your thirties. Maybe you were in a long term relationship at one point, and now… you find yourself back out there, a little older and a little wiser. One of the most important aspects of dating over the age of 40 is the mindset that you bring to the table. If you can still look at dating as a fun and enjoyable experience, and as an opportunity to get to know someone… then you should be fine.

Besides, women tend to get a little bit better over the age of 40, don’t they? So, you want to meet a great guy and you probably don’t want to put up with any of the drama or the games that went around when you were a bit younger. Are there any tips that you should know about if you are dating over the age of 40?

Yes.

And here are some of those must know dating tips for women:

1) There are probably many, many more places where you can meet a man who shares common interests with you than there were when you were in your twenties.

Technology can be a very good thing sometimes, and this is definitely one of those times. Thanks to the internet, you can now connect with people who have similar interests as you. No more having to go through a screening process just to see if they share common interests. Of course, you probably still want to have some kind of a screening process in place, but you will find it a lot easier to meet someone who shares the same likes and dislikes as you do.

2) You know what you want out of life… so don’t allow yourself to compromise.

This is a trait that most women over the age of 40 have that they did not really have when they were in their twenties and it’s a GOOD thing. Back then, you probably were not too sure of exactly what it was that you wanted out of life, so it was easy to compromise when it came to who you dated. Now, you don’t have to face that problem, so make sure that you don’t allow yourself to compromise because… you really don’t have to!

3) Don’t be afraid to date a younger man, if that sounds fun to you.

With the rise of the “cougar phenomenon” there are many more younger men who are very open to the idea of dating an older woman. If that is something that you want to explore, by all means… go for it. Twenty years ago there may have been a social stigma to this, but that is getting lifted every minute that passes.

  1. Great article! I could not agree more with the second tip. Often times women are so apprehensive to take that first step back into the dating world that they tend to be too general with their preferences and allow themselves to settle on important issues that should not be compromised. Thank you for open our eyes!
