Are you 40? Are you planning to date? Are you single and want to settle down?

If the answer to all this is yes, then lady, you need to sit back and read these few lines.
A woman at 40 is the one who has seen quite a lot in life, has faced many challenges and defeated a lot of them and has conquered herself more than winning anyone else.

Yes, it is important to conquer yourself to make the right emotional kind of choice in life.

Whether or not you would face any challenge while dating at the age of 40 or more is absolutely your prerogative.

However, in a common case the following can be your areas to be looked into

1.       Readiness

This is a very important aspect when you think of dating. At the age of 40 you must have had a few relationships with men; you might be married and might have kids too. Here you really need to ask yourself if you’re ready to undergo the same set of changes all over again or not. You might have a block in your mind and heart which mostly comes out of the last relationship and older memories. So you need to get yourself ready for getting into a new combination.

2.       Acceptance

You have seen a chunk of life at 40; it could be difficult for you to accept the ideas and ways proposed by a new person in your life. So, think if you can really accept someone absolutely new or else you would make a mess of the whole thing. It might again leave you with sour memories and bitter experiences.

3.       Prepared to risk

Yes, it is very important that you’re prepared to take a new emotional risk in your life. If you have had a break up or a divorce then mentally you might be drowned so badly that a new “crash” will be difficult for you to handle.

4.       Baggage

Your new date might have his own baggage of terms and conditions; think if you’re all set to buy that baggage and sell yours too him then you can surely go ahead and move up in life.

Dating after 40, is not all fun, but it has its own set of risk so think several times and ask your heart before going for any such association.
