Dating in your 20s is fun. This is the time of your life when you are a little carefree and just looking for a good time. Sometimes you want to meet new people, and sometimes you just want sex. But dating in your 40s or even 50s can be even more fun, and let me tell you why…
- Let’s face it, you have more money in your bank account now. This is when many of you have established yourself in your career and have set yourself up financially. You most likely have a permanent home, money for travel, and a better wardrobe. If the wardrobe part still needs work then I can help you with that with Celeste Image Consulting. But I’m not done, there are many other benefits.
- Even though you thought you knew it all, you know more about yourself and how you want your life to look now than you did in your 20s. Things change and what you thought you wanted 10 or 20 years ago may not still be true. You’ve taken the time to really set boundaries, learn your passions, learn your love languages, and maybe even uncover some kinks. I am also willing to bet that you feel better about yourself and have higher self-esteem. Do you want to know one of the best parts? You actually know how to treat others better and communicate more openly. Having that life experience will make you a better partner.
- Lastly, you know our values and your dealbreakers. When you are younger you might have been quick to put others’ needs before your own. Yes, a relationship is about compromise but you are allowed to have boundaries, values, and beliefs of your own. Years ago you may have been willing to overlook the fact that someone wanted kids and you didn’t. Now that you’re older you know that what you want is important so finding a partner who has the same values is key to a happy relationship.
Dating later has so many more benefits for men and women. So whether you haven’t dated much in your life, you are newly divorced or you’ve put your career first and now it’s time to find love this can be a fun experience.
