#1: Dating After 40......
I have so many people tell me I am too picky when it comes to dating. I rarely date anymore. I came across an article in More magazine written by Karen Allen, the actress. She is single & 56. She says "I feel that if I'm going to get involved at this point, I'm looking for the person I'd spend the rest of my life with and short of that, I honestly like being on my own." These are my feelings exactly. I think dating at my age is very different then dating in your 20's & 30's. I just don't have the energy for the dating marathons or wasting my time on someone who won't commit. I have the book, "He's Just Not That Into You" and I pretty much have it memorized. My last relationship lasted for 3 years & he would never commit. All the signs were there, but I didn't know what to look for. I'm sure most of you are married or in a serious relationship, but I'd like to hear your thoughts on this subject & I'd really like to hear from the older singles here.
