I was asked to take part in this tour and after looking at the title me being 32 myself it was like I was destined to take part. I am single no kids happy with that and while finding a guy would be nice I am not in a rush. Why rush into a bad relationship? So single I am. Some however are looking, so what to do when you’re older and single? Gigi guest posts with her thoughts on that topic.
How is dating now that you are older – As an over 40 year old single woman, dating is fantastic! With the divorce rate being what it is (about 40%), there are a number of men available in any given age range in the dating pool. When I was younger, I worried that, as I aged, the pool of eligible men to date would shrink. In actuality, it’s staying about the same. I do tend to date men that are a little bit older (up to 10 years older) as they have more things in common with me (their children are grown, they are financially stable and they don’t play with Xbox games all night). I haven’t ruled out dating a man who is slightly younger than me either, as long as we share common interests.
The biggest challenge is in the area of intimacy. As women’s bodies change with menopause, there are some challenges associated with having the desire and the ability to have the sex life you want. There are a number of steps you can take, including ones your doctor can help with, to increase your libido and your fun. Men are similarly challenged in this area when they start to need to take medicine (like to control blood pressure, heart, sugar, depression, etc.) that may impair their desires or the ability to act on or fulfill the physical act. There are two avenues that can be taken: (1) you can determine that intimacy isn’t that important, so you find a man who shares those beliefs, or (2) you can seek help from natural remedies, your doctor or medications (gotta love those little blue pills) to help you get back that lovin’ feeling. Either way, it’s got to be what’s right for the couple.
