As a Dating and Relationship Coach for Women over 40, I conducted a survey and asked women to tell me their biggest dating challenge as a woman in her 40s, 50s and beyond. You are merely a victim of nasty and sad circumstance, rather than a strong, smart woman in charge of her life. Quickly dismissing men is most often about self-protection and reliving past experiences in the present. The idea that there aren’t any quality men is a myth. Why do you hold on to this as if it were truth; like it’s a reality of life that you must endure?Yours will too.) Here are your action steps: • Write your list of qualities, values, and behaviors that attract you and that you expect in a man with whom you spend time.• Review your list and decide: does this man exist?Style section had a sobering little piece about single guys (mostly straight, though two gay men were quoted as well) in their 30s and 40s who are starting to realize that a successful career won’t massage their aching, aging knees and being the last guy to leave the club is not a good look. I found myself getting worked up about this piece despite it being fairly innocuous – it even features the nice story of 40-something guy who decided he wanted to settle down, went outside his comfort zone and ended up meeting a future wife and baby mama that my cynically-motivated Google stalking revealed is actually pretty age-appropriate.With most of their friends already married, these greying bachelors are torn up about the future. All his friends have significant others and children, so there’s no one to go out and get drunk with. But the sense of life is to have kids and try to give them as much as you know. I believe the day you go somewhere where you aren’t supposed to be, you end up falling in love and having babies. It’s not that I completely lack empathy for single men in my age range who are only now starting to crave deeper bonds; I just find it frustrating that the guys interviewed, not to mention guys I know, seem to think being emotionally available is a laborious buzzkill.We pair people based on several key dimensions of compatibility, so you’ll be one-step closer to finding someone who you’ll really click with.At e Harmony, we know that finding like-minded singles over 40 can be a challenge, which is why we make sure we really get to know you and find out what you’re looking for in a relationship.

It’s often in our 40s that our bodies become less forgiving and slower to recover from excesses or injury.
Whether its middle age spread or pains in the joints, it’s inevitable that our bodies will change as we grow older and we need to do more to stay in shape.
Instead, we’ll send you a carefully selected batch of compatible profiles every day, saving you time and preserving your privacy – it’s just one of the many reasons why e Harmony stands out from other overs 40s dating agencies and apps.
There’s no getting away from the fact that when you’re over 40 your perspective on life and love is different from when you’re in your 20s, but what is it really like to date in your fifth decade?
