As a dating coach for single women over 40, one of the first questions I ask a client is, “What’s your biggest problem in dating?” I want to know what they’ve tried and what their struggles are. Have they dated online? If so, have they had some success? Have they gone to social events? Are they dating the wrong men? Are they unknowingly putting up guards that turn men off? Their answers help me tailor a program that helps them attract their ideal match.
I recently asked a group of about 300 single, divorced, and widowed women over 40 what their biggest problems were in dating. I wanted to see how many struggled with the same issues. Here’s what they said, followed by my thoughts on how they might overcome these dating problems and attract their best relationship.
