Do you find that you are a little pickier when it comes to dating & men since you’ve gotten a little older? I feel like I have.
You can tell by my name that I’m in my 40’s now. Dating over 40 can be tricky. In my case, I still have a child at home. I have a definite opinion on what I want and like. I really want a man that will walk hand in hand with me. One that is courteous, will have my back and will help me if I need help. I really want a great attitude and one that can make me laugh! I don’t want one that will embarrass me, one that is all over me or one that will control me.
When I was younger, I didn’t care. I would go out with whoever and would most likely go back out with them. I thought I could change how they acted. We all that’s not going to happen, don’t we? I would go out with men that were totally inappropriate for me, I just wasn’t taught any better. I wish I knew then, what I know now. Oh well, we all grow in time.
I’ve been out a few times with men and I can tell right away that I will not see that person again. I’m good at judging if I will like being with that person or not. I’m just not going to waste my time on someone that will not bring happiness into my life. I think I deserve a little happiness at this point in my life, honestly, I’ve deserved it all along.
