Missing the Last Newsletter
I want to apologize for not writing the last newsletter,
the January/February 2004 issue. My father died at the end of 2003 and I
simply needed a break to come to come to terms with losing my dad,
grandmother, and younger brother in a three year span. (I also needed to convince my wife that my family isn’t cursed.)
I’m back, so let’s get on with this month’s newsletter …
Month’s Dating Tip
Dating Over Age 40
Dating over age 40 is pretty
broad topic, so we are only going to cover a few of the more common and
most important points. These days, one of the more common themes
of over 40 dating is dealing with divorce.
If you’ve experienced a
divorce over the age of 40, you know the powerful effect it can have on
your life. The divorce hits and everything is turned upside
For many years, sometimes many decades, things were a particular way and
you knew exactly who you were. You might have been mom or dad,
husband or wife. Your former partner may have been your closest
friend at one point. Bottom line is, day after day you basically
knew what to expect. But with the divorce, you had that comfort zone
ripped away from you.
Of course you’re still mom or dad, a divorce can’t change that.
However, this role does slightly change when mom and dad are dueling it
out in court for custody or when the kids are shifting back and forth
visiting one parent then the other. The kids get a slightly different view of
mom and dad, not to mention dealing with seeing their parents no longer
together. Parents and children feel this new tension. And even
if it’s only mild, it’s there and it affects things.
On top of this, you’re alone. You may be better off. But it’s still new, and you still have to redefine your
identity — without your spouse and without the very familiar life you had for so many
years. That’s perhaps the downside. But I tend to think the
upside is usually pretty awesome, also.
I dated two women in their 40s
who were both, at the time, recently divorced. Both women were going
through an identity crisis. I’m not
suggesting that they didn’t truly know who they were, that
wasn’t the case at all. Compared to a 25 year old, these women were
sharper, more worldly, and had a much better sense of life. Despite
this fact, there was still a loss of identity that took place during and after the
Prior to getting divorced, these women had lived a certain way of life for
a very long time. One was married for 26 years and had two kids, the
other was married for 21 years and had a daughter. The second woman
added the burden of feeling like her divorce made her fail her Christian
Overall, both women felt that they were better off divorced, but both were
also pretty unhappy and feeling a bit lost. Their feelings are very
understandable. However, as I said, there is an awesome upside to
Life Over 40
Whether you’re 40, 50, 60, or
older, life is still going (if you’re still breathing, it’s still going). And being single is as good or bad as
you make it. Feel free to have an identity crisis. Feel free
to be depressed. And feel free to feel a sense of loss. All of
these feelings are perfectly normal.
At the same time, don’t overlook the wonderful new opportunity you have
Most people typically get married for the first time while they are in
their 20s. Statistically speaking, at some point half of these
people will end up divorced. So who’s better off, the 50 percent who
stay married or the 50 percent who end up divorced? It’s an impossible
question to answer, but there are some definite advantages to dating when
you’re older. Here are three of the huge advantages of dating over 40:
You’re Far Better
Fact is, most of us are not too sharp in our 20s. We think
we are at the time, but when we hit our 30s, we tend to realize just
how little we really knew. So if you’re over 40 and looking to
date, you have a huge advantage. You know who you are, you know
what you want out of life, and your values are well-defined. In
short, you are far better equipped to find a great match when you’re
over 40 than when you were in your 20s.
You’re More Likely to
Find a Great Match
Because of what I do for a living, I can say this for a
fact. For a living, I write books and articles on dating,
relationships, and sex. And I study my field constantly.
Everything I’ve seen and everything I’ve read indicates that people who
meet someone when they are over 40 are much more likely to do it for
better reasons than they did when they were 20. Doesn’t this
make sense? You’re not an
impulsive 20 year old. You think things through a lot
better. And as I said, you now know who you are, what you want out
of life, and you have your values well-defined. Isn’t this a
much better place to be when looking to meet someone? Enjoy the
fact that you’re older and wiser, and far more capable of finding
someone that is a great match.
You’re More in Demand
than You Might Think
Whether you’re a man or woman, being “older” doesn’t
mean you’re no longer attractive or no longer sought after.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Those two 40-plus year
old women I dated were both older than me — 19 years and 13 years
respectively. Did I mind the age gap? Not at all.
These two ladies had a sexiness that a 20 year old rarely
possesses. They were more sure of themselves, far more mature,
much more interesting to talk to and be around, and they had genuine life
experience to share with me. To me, this was extremely
attractive. And I’m not alone. If you go into any large
online dating service, you’ll find slews of people who have no problem
dating people who are much older or much younger. In fact, our
newsletter dating site review this issue focuses on Yahoo Personals,
which has one of the most diverse age groupings of any online dating
service. Click here to read the review

To give you an idea, the term
“older woman younger man” gets 11,000 searches a month in the
search engines. If you’re 40 years old,
whether you want to date someone who’s 25 or 55, it doesn’t matter.
You can do either. It’s your world, define it as you see fit.
Go for it and have fun!
