So we spoke to a handful of dating coaches and relationship experts for their best tips for dating after Read on, but don't forget: Being on.
As a dating coach for single women over 40, one of the first questions I ask a client is, “What's your biggest problem in dating?” I want to know.
Of course they ask me what I am up to, I kind of tapper off the conversation or would change what we are talking about. I read a few articles from women giving dating advice to women. They warn women of older men who never married or has kids then they go on to tell them they are afraid of commitment and stuff. LOL whatever. Most churches I go to have events for kids, teens, young adults, college students, dating and golden oldies and widows. The age of 30 to 65 singles are totally non-existent and assumed you are married or dating.
Thanks for your time, Reply Andrew August 12, , pm Just had one for almost 3 years. Had some issues, but we all do. Received a breakup text out of the blue. Tried everything to fix and get stepped on after everything I did to help her and the kids. I do believe the feminist movement is helping to end good relationships.
With that attitude good luck attracting a smart, accomplished, secure women. Bp Reply Mike D September 3, , am Bobbi, you need to check yourself on your one sided viewpoint.
If you are truly open minded, you would see that there is a point here. Men have evolved, they still love women as nature intended. Women need the equality they deserve and honestly, it is attractive to meet a strong woman who wants that. Hell or just makes a family stronger! That is unattractive. The horrible truth is meeting needs gets your needs met. But most are too needy to meet needs.
Stop choosing selfish partners. Bp T September 18, , pm Seriously. Every comment a guy makes you are defensive. Helping women is my First Priority.
Listening to guys complain with no constructive feedback helps No One. There are tons of places that want to entertain your opinions, such as they are. It seems as though many of the men have given up on finding their best friend. If this is the case where does that leave me? Reply Bobbi Palmer August 21, , pm You are a grownup woman and can decide to either let your fears keep you single, or learn some new things and go for finding love at this time in your life. That is what the vast majority of my clients do every day.
There are good men out there looking for their woman. There are plenty of men still looking for a best friend they can live their life with. Just get out there and be yourself. Rick August 4, , pm Just too many Gold Diggers these days that just want men with a lot of money. Bp Jenn August 16, , pm Thank you Bobbi!
Reply James September 4, , am They may not be gold diggers per se, but damned few where I live are willing to be a partner that cares to build anything. Ronnie September 15, , am Im 46, Im independent , professional not bad to look at. To be 40, 50, 60 But still leave have all the energy to live life to the fullest.. Someone to keep me in my toes, keeps me laughing and give me butterflies every time we see each other.
I learned a easy way to sort the money grabbers out when I used to date long ago. Meet for coffee and yes, buy. Then if they talked about diner or something like that toss the word GO DUTCH, if they get mad and leave then guess what, they was out for a free meal. Just meet ones that have a life! I encourage you to pay for the first date…all of it. For most of the women here — all of whom are quite secure monetarily — they would consider your suggestion to go dutch as a deal-breaker.
Bp doug August 14, , pm I speak from my experiences that I encountered from where I was living. Had far to many dine and dash dates is why I said that. Every city and state will vary in how dates go. Reply Jo September 10, , pm Go Dutch. Tells me that man would not step up to the plate. This generally indicates a persons willingness to assume an existing trend that will continue or that similar methods will be applicable in the future.
In all honesty, your viewpoint would more accurately indication that it is HIM that will be paying for most everything starting with the first date simply because of his gender. Please expand on your line of reasoning.
Perhaps you reverse the role on the second date.
However, there would be no indication of that if your behavior is to be interpreted by the man from that first encounter. Call it unfair, imbalanced, old-fashioned…whatever you want. Study it.
Fight it as much as you like…just like many women do. And this discussion is for women as well as men, btw. There can and should be balance. Which, btw, is wrong when Jo says it too. And that is nice. Take Care! Just like when the woman would like to take care of the man, maybe in different ways.
She invites him over and cooks dinner. Yah, this sounds like a bunch of old-fashioned bullshit. But after so many years I finally accepted…there is value in showing a nod to some natural way things have worked with men and women for eons. Hunter, gatherer, my friends. I would BET that most men perhaps including you, Tom, would prefer a woman make you a lovely dinner than offer to pay for a date.
Stop making all these assumptions and talk to each other. Better yet, how about just approach each other with kindness instead of trying to keep score or figuring out who will be Superior and Inferior.
How about just thinking about how we can make each other feel good? And my current partner did make dinner for me after the first few dates and first becoming friends.
And I have been chivalrous in the past and I continue to do so. Experience in two long term relationships and three fleeting ones has proven that an imbalance exists in equal choices and equal responsibilities. Many ladies are just simply glutinous and looking for a free ride with money or domestic chores or excessive validation.

There is a huge number of women from dysfunctional families where I am. Hang in there and keep trying. As to guys who want to go Dutch — that is fine, but in some ways it makes me feel sad because I think that the guy might be on a limited income. Reply Carla Millette July 25, , pm So I would love to meet a man I am 61 and handicapped but very lonely as my husband passed away a few years ago but we had not been sexually active for many years and I am quite tired of being alone and need a mans arms around me.
What do I do???????
This is one thing men should always realize. Most men are of the belief that physical attraction gives access to all the other qualities which go with a relationship: love, intimacy, and companionship. High Expectations An intolerant woman will automatically reject a man on shallow information.
She loses interest and discards the man like an evening trash. Responsibilities Most single 40 women are usually divorced with kids. Their changing expectations often make them less eager to put up with another bad marriage, whereas, most men seem less able to handle single life. They tend to enter into a new relationship more quickly. Shortage of older men Women prefer to date older men. The sad part is there are fewer single men in their forties.
Even these few prefer to go for much younger women. The older the men are, the wider the age gap they are seeking for. Furthermore, it is more socially acceptable for older men to go out with younger women than for older women to go out with younger women. Very Selective Women above 40 years are often choosy. They make a list of all what they seek in a man. Searching for a better relationship In their course of searching for a better relationship, they read all sorts of articles and books that tell you not to stay in a bad relationship.
