Dear Single Men 35 – 45 Years Old –
Let’s face it. You are not as young as you think you are and neither am I. We need to embrace where we are in life and move forward with a positive (and realistic) attitude.
Reality check: You may want a fiercely independent woman who also serves you in a 1950’s June Cleaver sort of way. The reality is that she doesn’t exist and if she does she is not happy and will learn to hate you and/or your life together. I know this because I have watched my older counterparts walk through this life.
Women of my age, mid-thirties to mid-forties, have learned from our older sisters. We’re making choices to be different. We appreciate that you respect us where we are – even if it’s the board room and not the kitchen. The reality is that we want someone to complement our lives.
We understand that you have a life because we have a life too. There’s just something missing – we want to share our life with someone.
A word about you: You want to be with someone who is sure of who she is and where she wants to be in her life. You are scared to admit this so you keep dating the wrong people and wonder why nothing is working out the way you want. Get out of your own way and embrace who you are and what you want. You will meet her.
Be honest about what you truly, in your soul, want in a relationship. Then write it down. Then make it happen. (I don’t care if you want a steamy affair with someone half your age. I just want you to quit fooling yourself into thinking one thing and truly wanting something else.)
Most of all please have fun! A life without fun is a life unfulfilled. You can quote me.
I look forward to hearing from you.
