How to meet the man of your dreams in your 50s

Site Logo

If you are a single woman over 40, you have a love history. You could be a widow and unsure of ever finding another man like your husband. As a dating coach for women over 40, I know finding love the second time around or even the first is not easy. Still, people fall in love every day and many of my clients do find that loving man. This might seem harsh, but you are likely telling yourself several lies about love after 40 that are hurting you.

5 Steps To Attracting A Quality Guy in Midlife

I have a lot of conversations with women who inquire about which coaching option is the right fit. If she was driven, she remained driven. If she was opinionated, she remained opinionated.

If she was busy, she remained busy. But what if I told you that I was drawn towards cocaine and prostitutes? Yes, I am secretly Charlie Sheen. It may be fun, but hookers and coke are probably not building blocks for a peaceful life.

And the only way to find a relationship that sticks is to quit them cold turkey. Unless you make it that way. Consider this email I got from my former client last week:. I read your newsletter today and I want to tell you why your advice is so incredibly frustrating to me, although it seems like it should be simple.

Only stay with men that treat you well, like a boyfriend. You make it all seem so easy. Neither of them were appealing enough to me to inspire me to want them as my boyfriend, as a matter of fact, being around them was incredibly depressing, since I felt so sad that I was finally getting some quality attention from a man, but I was so not interested, the attention felt annoying rather than good. And yes, I gave them a good chance and got to know them; I really tried.

I was able to easily break things off with them with no regrets, and great relief! However, your initial story of the woman who falls for a guy right away, only to be treated like an option on the back burner is ALL too familiar to me. This must be a very common scenario among your woman clients, since you describe it perfectly.

The same guy who also drives us crazy with his murky intentions and inconsistent behavior. I dated well over men during the past few years and this has been my experience. Are the women who find these great boyfriends just settling for the first guy who pays attention to them properly?

Far from it. She has a great body and amazing smile, knows obscure facts that perpetually surprise me, makes me laugh, and gets every pop culture reference that I make. Because all the people I know who are still trying to date a better version of themselves are still single and frustrated!

So stop dating jerks. Stop dating men who depress you. And keep your head up for something in between those two extremes. Clearly, Evan is successfully educating his clients away from these relationship-killing attitudes.

Sexual attraction is great. This quote describes the dilemma quite well. The type of man to whom this woman is attracted to sexually is also the guy to whom many women are attracted sexually.

He has options and he is quite willing to exercise them. He gets away with this because so many women allow it. Why do they allow it? They are thinking with their vaginas. This is the unfortunate reality of Dating 2. While women are the gatekeepers to sexuality, men are the gatekeepers to commitment.

Not only do women need to broaden their outlook towards men, they also have to bring something to the dating and relationship table that men want.

Experience has told me that looks and character are unrelated. Hookingupsmart, a blog that I found through Evan, had a post on this very point, today. All I keep hearing is stop going after the good looking guys. And the blogs, books and everything else that says chemistry will grow is a hoax. What happens is that the person gets tired of looking and settles and eventually ends up in a relationship that has no attraction but are great friends.

No thanks…. I see Chemistry as meaning something different to different people. For men, yes in my experience it does seem to be based on the physical, superficial and Ridiculously Hypocritical! I recently ran across a profile from a 42 year old Hispanic, single-father, bald, overweight low-income high school educated man. I know for myself and most of my girlfriends, I find humor, adventure, kindness, support, and family values much sexier than washboard abs meaning he spends Way too much time in the gym!

Lani, thank you for expressing some of the frustrations I have felt as well. Keep persevering! The few men that wanted one with me were significantly and inappropriately older- no thanks! I do not make any of the commonly discussed dating mistaKes. I dont have a single type — I have probably 10! Is it something subconscious? Bad luck? Is the dating demographic that rough? And I really like him.

And things are going really great! No one likes it when things have to end. Truth is, I have met someone. About 8 months ago. Interestingly enough, when we first met on Match.

And the dating rehab ensued! It was about this time I met my now awesome and wonderful boyfriend. I was a little uncertain at first because this was a whole new ballgame for me.

Dating a nice guy who means what he says, says what he means and ALWAYS backed it all up with action, was foreign territory for me. Sure there was attraction, but on a scale of 1 to 10, it was hovering around a 5.

Breaking patterns is hard. And I recognize that change is by choice. I consciously made a choice to break my unhealthy dating patterns. And with your guidance, I am now in a healthy relationship with a wonderful, magnificent, generous, compassionate, beautiful, NICE man who is the love of my life and truly my best friend.

I still need to break up with you though. Tee hee. Spiral and Lani. The so-so guys I give about dates. With them I always end up dreading the kiss or the hand holding and then know its not going to work. I started the year off dating any height as long as taller than which is easy , loosened all sorts of age and education requirements. Most people are going to be chemistry with nothing more or zero chemistry. That maybe the mid range guy who I feel some spark with but who is a nice at the right time is limited.

So I keep at it. Mia I have a read a lot of your posts and often feel the same way. For me chemistry comes with love. The kind that makes you feel like electricity is crackling and crawling all over your skin. Your heart skips a couple beats before it goes off the charts and sends your head into a dizzying spin.

Breathing becomes damn near unneccesary because you swear you could live forever inside the euphoria. Sometimes I snap crackle and pop just laying my head on his chest.

Time can stand still if I look in his eyes, or breathe him in. A simple kiss on the neck could send me right through the roof and into oblivion.

If we have sex during a time like that, watch out! To feel that way without loving a person. It grows stronger, entwines, and meshes with my love for that person. I was simply attracted to my bf when we met. I wanted to jump him frequently. But chemistry? Not without love. Then again maybe far too many people miss out on this or never find it because they mistakenly believe you need it to love someone and not the other way around…Food for thought. Spiral, Lani and K wow the list of women who feel the same way keeps growing!

I have felt the same way as you most of my dating life. I dated men with whom I had great chemistry but were not good in one aspect or another and men with whom I had zero chemistry.
