If you aren’t confident just yet, you can simply confident; eventually, the confidence will follow.
Don’t walk around bar, coffee shop, club, or a gym staring at ground.
I also just interviewed divorce expert, Martha Bodyfelt. The question is: “Are you completely ok going for the rest of your life by yourself, relying on friends and family, but, not having a man by your side? At the same time, many of us, if we are honest with ourselves, really do miss having a man in our lives. If you fall into the latter category and decide that senior dating is right for you, Martha has some advice.
We miss the support that being in a relationship can bring and we crave physical contact. She says that we need to remind ourselves that everyone – men and women – feel insecure and nervous when it comes to dating. The trick is to “embrace the awkward” and not let our fears about our appearance or our inevitable mistakes get in the way. Many women hate the fact that older men judge them, in part, based on their appearance. But, most older men simply don’t have the confidence, looks, financial resources and charm to compete with men 1 or 2 decades their junior.
Often this is in reaction to the shock, and not being prepared.
by Larry O'Connor, MFT Men’s Challenges with Separation and Divorce “Women grieve the loss of a relationship before ending it, men grieve it after it has ended,” may say it best.
Statistically, 65-70% of divorces are filed by women (90% in college-educated couples).
You’re two different people which is why comparing yourself to others doesn’t solve (or help) anything.
Again, focus on building your confidence and having fun.
