In our day and age, it is so frustrating to listen to people telling you that you are way too picky, expect too much and that you should lower your standards of dating……but the good news is that you don’t need to “settle” for Mr. Right Now. Having a considerable amount dating experience under your belt actually gives you the practical skills you’ll need when Mr. Right does happen to wonder into your neck of the woods, whether it be a chance meeting at the dry cleaners, the supermarket or on the internet. It also opens your eyes to see what kind of weirdos and super freaks there really are out there!
They say….the more experience you have, the better you will be at weeding out the good men from the pool of men who aren’t right for you. (this applies to men weeding out the right and wrong women too) I call the bad ones the bottom feeders, better know as a leech, slacker, someone with total lack of responsibility. Women who date frequently know this type and know when to cut their losses and say, “Next!” Savvy women respect that and move on. It’s women who don’t date a lot who tend to settle for less. No No No gals…..never ever just settle! This should be in a womans hand book somewhere. It’s in mine!You know that saying “less is more?” Not such good advice to follow in dating.
I say..”BACK OFF!” In the end, the “older” woman, with more life experience and wisdom beats out the younger woman who may be lacking maturity and poise. Although it’s a bit cliché, it is imperative that you just be yourself! I’ve never said that the older cannot date and or marry the younger or visa versa…I’m simply stating that the statistics show that most often it just doesn’t work out. A woman over 40 should be very proud of the life she’s lived, the experiences and insight she’s gained, the accomplishments and achievements that she has acquired and the person she’s become.
Oh sure, we always think that the grass is greener on the other side…but don’t be a schmuck… in perspective, eventually that grass needs mowed too!
