It's just math, and men who are too timid or shallow to date women their age. The dating market is brutal, I haven't met one person over the age of 35 who's still single who wasn't that way for a serious reason. We aren't willing to sit back and allow things to unfold at a natural pace.
And it's usually one of these: We want it all right now. We assume that if someone doesn't feel the same way we do when we do then they aren't right for us.
Face it: your inebriated self isn't the real you, and it doesn't make sense to start a relationship based on what you're like when you're intoxicated.
Try a Starbucks or an equally populated café, instead.
Dating is typically a situation where people feel scrutinized, have to meet new people, and may fear they’ll do something embarrassing.
In this way, dating only adds fuel to the anxiety fire.
This is a thing: if you’re single in your 30s or 40s you can feel like you’ve missed a steamin’ big ship. Because you just can’t find people who fit the bill, who inspire something in your loins. When I started dating a guy at 21 we were building from a pretty low base, together.
It may take longer to open up and share, which can affect one’s ability to form close relationships.
It can feel very significant in the moment, even though it doesn't really mean anything other than that you've had a bad night.
Unfortunately, my client went home and read a blog post that made her feel much worse.
In your 30s and 40s, your standards for finding a partner are super elevated.
I don’t mean to sound as arrogant as I do when I say that my life now is too good for many men to be able to reach my personal bar. It’s the logical truth of the matter, not self-flattery.
