Dating at 50-Are You Settling versus Getting the Man You Want as an over 50 Woman?

I love this man because he’d do anything for me!

When a guy is willing to do anything for you, it’s pretty heady stuff, making it hard to move away from him. The problem is-if you don’t love him, you are marking time.  You deserve to feel happily in love in a relationship.

So, if you’re not feeling it, maybe you need to go back and look at why you were attracted to him in the first place. Was it his looks, his money, his emotional side? Can you find that spark again?

If not, no matter how much he does for you and how good that might feel now, in the long run, you will be miserable dating a man who’s not working for you in all ways-mind, body and soul.

Don’t care who it is-I Just Want a Man In My Life!

Some women will take any man they can get just to have someone in their life to go to dinner with or take to a wedding. What they often end up with is a “Project Man,” a man who is needy and wants someone taking care of him.

When this happens, you usually come out on the short end of this stick giving far more then you are getting just to have some man hanging around and available for you.

Learn to be happy as a fabulous single woman with a great life. This way, you will keep standards for yourself about who you will and won’t date. At this time in your life, you deserve far better then a “Project Man” hanging around.

I’ll date him till someone better shows up!

It’s been said that what we focus on is what we get in life. So if you’re dating a man you’re not too crazy about while waiting for your Mr. Right to appear, you aren’t leaving space in your world for someone you want to show up.

All of your energy is going to a place you really don’t want to be. It’s actually better to be alone and have fun with your girlfriends then to mark time with someone you don’t care that much about.

If you aren’t happy with the guy you’re dating, be honest with him and tell him you’d like to date other men. Let him go so you can both find partners who are better suited for each of you. You deserve someone you can love who wants to love you back!
