Men and dating in forties
Neely Steinberg is a dating coach who refers to herself as a “love en TREPreneur”—a reference to her business The Love TREP, where she functions as an image consultant and love expert extraordinaire. They have so many experiences and so much knowledge to draw from by this point that guys like the ‘bad boy’ or the ‘emotionally unavailable man’ have less and less allure.” Steinberg says these women often have a better idea of their desires in life.
According to her, women in their forties have their priorities straight when it comes to figuring out what they do and don’t want. “I think they start to let go of some of their more superficial wants and start focusing on what it is they really need,” she says, “I think they expect a lot more from a man in terms of character and integrity—they start to raise their emotional standards.” Sally says she’s not willing to settle for just anyone for the sake of being with someone.
To better understand them, you have to look not only at their attitudes toward dating, but where they’re at and where they’ve been with life in general. Your twenties, and even thirties, are spent learning a lot of lessons about love and life.While no two women are the same (even those in the same age bracket), women in their forties really do have completely different expectations and priorities to those younger than them.And if you’re going to date women of their caliber, then it’s time to learn what they need.Even 37-year-old Maggie Gyllenhaal was told she was too “old” to play someone’s love interest in a film.But despite what Hollywood might have you believe, women don’t reach an expiry date once they hit 40.
