I’ve talked to countless single men over the years about their experiences with women, especially those in midlife and beyond.Here are some of their stories of dating after 40; dating that never turned into relationships, this is.(They are men, after all.) She won’t get a call from either of these guys and forever wonder why since she thinks she gave him what he wants. You know that dating after 40 (or at any stage of life, for that matter! When you appreciate the same is true for the men you date, it will go a long way toward building compassion and, in turn, building relationships.
Try as he might, the 60-year-old fabulous guy can’t measure up to her expectations because she’s looking for a man who doesn’t exist.
The Princess The Princess is confident, well put together, and very attractive. She still follows “The Rules” and requires that her man do what she wants when she wants. She’s a scorekeeper, and she alone decides when he’s given enough to satisfy her…or when he hasn’t and is history.
The Princess has an “I deserve it” attitude and has little or no concern for how she can make the other person happy.
When he passes those tests or shows he has feelings for her, she questions it and might up the ante.
She picks fights, picks the wrong guys, or maneuvers relationships to end because it gives her control.
