I Never Believed It, But I Guess It's True!Yes, I am a single woman and over 40. I will be 42 in a week to be exact. I never thought it would be hard to date...let me revise that. I never thought it would be hard to find a meaningful relationship after 40. Most men I date are actually young men who just want to have fun...wait...I have to revise that as well. Most men I date just want one date and then never call me again.
I am a good catch if I do say so myself, so I think that maybe it's because the man of my dreams just hasn't found me yet. I tried dating sites and felt I was getting the same run around only this time I was paying money (way too much if you ask me) to find the same type of men I could find for free! What's really disheartening is that everyone around me seems to be finding their love match. I find it hard to be happy for them, but at the same time, better someone is falling in love even if it isn't me.
I have only been in love once and that was with my exhusband. Sometimes I think I have forgotten what it's like. I suppose I am just tired of meaningless dates, and sometimes one night stands. Oh, let's not forget the men who really do like me, but unfortunately no interest on my part. Do most women find dating this way as well? I feel like I am alone most of the time and as I get older I feel like my time is running short. I realize it's just my own insecurities, but I can't help but feel that way sometimes. I'm sure you understand.
I have always heard that it is difficult to date after 40...I never believed it, but I guess it's true..:)
