There’s no harm done in sending a few messages and seeing what kind of response you get.
You don’t have to meet every person you message and you don’t have to arrange more dates after the first if you don’t want to.
This expectation will have you say no to many spectacular men.
Nowadays, fast-paced careers and short-lived marriages are meaning that more and more people in their forties are finding themselves without a partner.
It’s OK to be upfront about this, even in your online dating profile.Think about the phases of development in a relationship.So many online daters think the first email should show real interest and impress you.Luckily, when you’ve reached the age where you’ve had a bit more experience, you don’t have much trouble deciding what you don’t want.You can then use these feelings to work out what it is you’re looking for in a new love.You expect him to wow you and court you from the beginning. This rule is about the feeling that men do all the work, and you sit back and enjoy it.That’s not how it is when you’re both smart, accomplished, happy adults.People are more likely to be patient and to wait it out for someone they really want to be with.This helps to build stronger relationships which will last the test of time. Not what everyone has told you for the last few decades. I would usually say, “men suck, men don’t want smart women, it’s because of my thighs”. The biggest challenge is to start shedding those layers, and doing the beautiful work to get clear about who you are as a woman, and what a relationship looks like to you.
