Millionaire Matchmaker: Tips for Finding Love After 40
Finding love can be a challenging, but when you’re 40’s it can come with a whole different set of challenges.
- Accept Baggage
No one is perfect, so you need to be open and accept their baggage which may include exes, children, illness, jobs, etc. But definitely don’t discount someone with baggage.
- Be Aggressive
Being aggressive doesn’t mean what you think. It means to put yourself out there and be proactive about dating and take it seriously. If you just sit home and only put yourself out there every once in awhile, you’re less likely to meet the right one.
- Ignore his/her birthday
Don’t take ignoring his/her birthday literally. It means to just ignore his/her age. Age is just a number and has nothing to do with who the person is. You won’t fall in love with someone because of their age, you fall in love with someone because of the connection you have, common interests, core values and the way s/he treats you.
- Be realistic about finding love after 40.
Your list of must haves and deal breakers shouldn’t be a list that’s a mile long. If your list is too long, it could be what’s actually keeping you single.
The Millionaire Matchmaker’s suggestion is to only have list of 5 non-negotiables and that should be it. Any list that is longer, is too much.
The most important thing to remember is, finding love in your 40’s can be hard, but it’s definitely not impossible. As long as you’re realistic about what you want and what’s actually out there, you will most certainly find love into your 40’s and beyond.
