By the time you get to your midlife, you are entering some of the most fabulous decades of your life! At this stage, you have a high level of intuition cultivated through life experience. If you find yourself single at this time of your life, you should not be willing to settle for anything less than the love and respect you deserve in your relationships.
With your heightened intuition and confidence, it’s time to delve into the exciting world of midlife dating!
In this blog post, I’m going to sprinkle some of my top-notch dating tips for women in their midlife.
I was recently on the Two Women Chatting podcast, where I discussed my advice for divas dating in their midlife.
Below are some of my best dating tips for women in their midlife that I’ve compiled after coaching thousands of women across 90 countries of the globe on how you can attract a healthy, loving relationship.
Midlife Dating Tip #1: The Art of Discernment
In the dating realm, discernment is your secret weapon. It’s about realizing that perfection doesn’t exist, but red flags certainly do.
I want you to keep an eagle eye out for potential deal breakers, such as:
- Temper Troubles: If he’s got a fuse shorter than a sparkler, it might be time to reconsider.
- Workaholic Alert: A man consumed by work may not have room for a relationship, and you deserve someone who prioritizes you.
- Priority Puzzles: If he can’t make space for you in his schedule, it’s time to wave that red flag high.
In midlife, your standards evolve. It’s not just about avoiding blatantly disrespectful or abusive men; it’s also about seeking someone who genuinely has the capacity to be there for you.
Remember, emotional unavailability is a massive red flag. Being attractive and intelligent is just the tip of the iceberg; you need someone who’s willing to make you a priority.
Discernment empowers you to make wise choices
and not rush into a relationship without due consideration.
Midlife Dating Tip 2: Slow and Steady Wins the Race
Picture this: you’re basking in the glow of an exciting connection, and the temptation to leap into exclusivity is strong. But hold on!
My advice for midlife dating is to take your time.
Rushing into exclusivity might lead to surprises down the road as hidden facets of your partner’s personality emerge. It’s crucial to go slow and ensure that your values align, that you’re on the same page regarding your goals, and that you share a fundamental compatibility.
Emotional availability and effort count for a lot.
Don’t let physical attraction be the sole driver of exclusivity; give the relationship time to unfold organically.
Midlife Dating Tip 3: Boundaries – Your Secret Superpower
Wave “good-bye” to the days of being the “good girl” who stifles her needs and feelings to gain approval from men. Your 30s, 40s and 50s are all about standing tall and proud, embracing your needs, and expressing your desires.
Draw boundaries like a diva, and don’t hesitate to ask for what you want and firmly say “no” to what you don’t.
You can communicate your boundaries with love and respect and still refuse to compromise on what’s essential to you.
A man worth your time will honor and respect your boundaries, needs, and desires.
