What to Remember When Dating After 40


If after a long break you would like to plunge into a stormy love again — age is not a hindrance. But there are a few important things to keep in mind. Today, we will talk about the factors that should be taken into account when searching for a partner for those who are over 40 or more.


1.   Dating Websites

Write appropriately your senior dating goals in your profile and don’t overload it with overly frank pictures. Such images serve as bait for users who pursue sexual goals. Respond to all messages except in cases of outright rudeness. It is quite possible that behind the ordinary phrase “Hi, would you like to meet?” a very interesting person is hiding.

2.   Be Open to New Meetings

American psychologist Ian Kerner is convinced that the main thing for success in senior dating after 40-50 years is a positive mindset and openness. “Make friends who also suffer from loneliness. Take an interest in life and get involved in social activities — such as cycling, literature clubs, and sports… Even if you do not meet a new person during these events, this will allow you to collect new impressions, become a more versatile and attractive personality,” the psychologist emphasizes.

3.   Respect Precious Time

When we are young, we can waste time, but in adulthood, people usually value every minute. “It is quite normal to value your own time resources. But, anyway, if you want to get acquainted, you will have to spend at least a few hours a week for dating. If you come across a worthy candidate, such sacrifices will pay for themselves.

If a new acquaintance cancels a date at the last minute, then asks to meet again without explaining any reasons — this should alert you. Most likely, he or she is not planning anything serious. And this is the way your future relationships will develop if you allow them to develop,” the psychologist warns.

4.   Children

After 40, many people already have adult children. Kerner believes that this factor should be one of the determining ones when searching for a new partner. “Search for those people who also have children. This will make it easier to find a common language — you will not have to explain why the child is in the first place for you. There will be no jealousy in the new relationship.”


5.   Analyze Previous Relationships

“If you have already been divorced, think about what difficulties in your new life can haunt you. Often, to achieve a happy future, you need to draw the right conclusions from the past. Carefully estimate your own actions and behavior with the previous partners. What did you do wrong? What annoyed you about them? This understanding will help to avoid crucial mistakes in the future,” advises Kerner.

6.   Correctly Estimate Yourself

“Look in the mirror and soberly analyze your own advantages and disadvantages,” recommends Ian Kerner. “Maybe you should respond to the offer to meet that 50-year-old woman, and not unsuccessfully search for young girls, then consider them stupid and greedy?”
