Dating tips for women over 40
The most important piece of advice for 40 plus dating is simple: don't stagnate.
If you're ready for a relationship, stay active in your search for love because it's all too easy to rely on being set up by your wide circle of friends (a mere 17% end up liking their blind date) or have blind faith that love will fall right into your lap.
Whether they're still young or all grown up, being a single parent is much more common when you're dating in your 40s.
It's only natural to fear that your children won't like your new partner or vice versa, but is there really anything to worry about?
The vast majority of our members - a staggering 82% no less - say they have no qualms about dating someone with kids.
For more detailed advice on dating a single parent, as well as how to approach things with your children, read our guide in the Elite Singles online magazine.
It's fair to say that once you start dating in your 40s, you're almost certainly taking the search for love seriously.
But take it from me, the guy who has helped thousands of women — many of whom were 40 — find the love of their lives.
Yes, dating after 40 looks different than it used to.
Whilst that's not impossible, the dating game isn't really like that in practice, so finding your own potential partners - whether that's online or offline - is the key to success.
In over 40 dating, without doubt, you make your own luck!
