— As a dating coach for single women over 40, one of the first questions I ask a client is, “What’s your biggest problem in dating? I recently asked a group of about 300 single, divorced, and widowed women over 40 what their biggest problems were in dating. But when a man rushes sex, women often feel objectified.
” I want to know what they’ve tried and what their struggles are. I wanted to see how many struggled with the same issues. They want to be appreciated for more than their bodies.
Next week, I’ll be posting about how to overcome these challenges and stay positive on your journey to find love.◊♦◊I polled my private Facebook group of almost 800 single women over 40 from all over the world about what they find most challenging about online dating. I’m not saying it’s just the men, I’m hearing horror stories about woman. The feeling of being judged, as in a “beauty” contest, because there are so many pictures to scroll through online.
Here’s what they said, followed by my thoughts on how they might overcome these dating problems and attract their best relationship.◊♦◊This is a common complaint from women. So guys, please pay attention to more than the boobs and the butt.
The other B, the brain, is just as important, especially as you’re getting to know a woman. Anyone who’s looking for a true connection is more likely to find it with someone closer to their age.
Their answers help me tailor a program that helps them attract their ideal match.
Are they unknowingly putting up guards that turn men off?
