I haven’t been on a proper date for years, but I’ve been sleeping with someone that I shouldn’t have been for the past two years. It’s 2012 now and I haven’t so much as spoken to a man I don’t work with for over a year. I go on a very wide range of dates with guys from age 23 upwards. It’s fun for a while but then things start to turn weird. Rather than resigning yourself to a life alone because you don’t feel confident about your body, try doing all you can to take care of yourself.Just the basics of eating a balanced diet, getting enough sleep, drinking plenty of water and exercising regularly will help you feel more confident about yourself.Time seems to speed up as you get older and people realise that they have one chance at a relationship and happiness.The realisation that life is short is often a good incentive to make the most of every day and not be too burdened by the past or fearful of the future.
My first date is a guy who I date for 6 weeks but fucks me up for 3 months of this year. Or even make up a completely fake profile to lure you in.Whether its middle age spread or pains in the joints, it’s inevitable that our bodies will change as we grow older and we need to do more to stay in shape.If you’re particularly body conscious this can become a real block to dating.Men can continue to father children until much later in life but for women, if they haven’t had a family by this time their priorities for a relationship will be different from that of a younger woman.Older people often have children from previous relationships and it’s becoming more common for families to be ‘blended’ with step brothers and sisters, aunts, uncles and grandparents.
