Dating for women in their 40s
The chances are that your partner won’t be either, if they’re around the same age as you.
Accepting your own imperfections will help you to also accept others.
Whether its middle age spread or pains in the joints, it’s inevitable that our bodies will change as we grow older and we need to do more to stay in shape.
The realisation that life is short is often a good incentive to make the most of every day and not be too burdened by the past or fearful of the future.
Men can continue to father children until much later in life but for women, if they haven’t had a family by this time their priorities for a relationship will be different from that of a younger woman.
Older people often have children from previous relationships and it’s becoming more common for families to be ‘blended’ with step brothers and sisters, aunts, uncles and grandparents.
This can bring up lots of different issues within a relationship but as long as you and your partner are on the same page and work together as a team, it can be very satisfying.
It’s often in our 40s that our bodies become less forgiving and slower to recover from excesses or injury.
