Dating tips for women age 40 and over
In my late 40s, I never thought I would turn to a "hook-up" app for romance. After my marriage of 12 years ended, I spent most of the past decade building a successful career that allowed me the time and flexibility I needed to raise my son and assembling a close-knit circle of friends.Although my ex-husband and I co-parent our now 12-year old son, my son spends 75% of his time at my home.However, I am also someone who enjoys dating and believes it's possible to date genuinely care about someone without falling madly in love with them.In other words, Tinder is perfect for someone like me. There is an ego boost to swiping right on someone you find attractive, and learning that they find you attractive as well.
Naturally, the topic turned to men and the atmosphere in the room began to resemble a slumber party. We sat side by side, swiping right and left, exclaiming with glee when we matched with someone. I had tried (and still use) other dating applications but the pool of men I had been meeting began to feel limited.This is the digital age, and the process of looking for love is keeping up with the times!
