There's no other way to say it: Dating sucks when you’re in your 40s, 50s and, God forbid, in your 60s.Our bosoms sag to our ribcage and our fannies droop.I’m not sure how often you’re ‘allowed’ to see each other without seeming to crowd the other party. More than 30 percent don’t even know where to begin and nearly 30 percent say they find it too stressful (think back to those sweaty palms and awkward conversations.) For more than 40 percent of respondents, other priorities are simply more important, and nearly one-quarter say it’s just too difficult to date when you’re 50-plus.
Our faces are blighted with wrinkles and age spots.
Our slim waistlines have been replaced with doughnuts.
Don't even think about wearing short-shorts in the summer. The men I wanted to date never asked me out, or if I went out with a great guy, I never heard from him again. High expectations (code for: unreasonable and unattainable)Woman are infamous for "The List," a column of checkmark boxes that characterize the traits and attributes that must characterize the man they will date or marry.
I realized there are two top reasons mature women are unable attract and hold the sincere interest of quality men. A closed-minded woman automatically rejects a man on superficial information.
If he shows up on a first date wearing the wrong shirt, or his haircut or eyeglasses are out of date, or he is bit reserved, she pulls out her Sharpie and she discards him like the evening trash.
That’s true whether you’re 16 or 56, but more than 40 percent don’t believe there is anyone “out there” to date.
