Whether you’re fresh out of a long-term relationship, or just ready to start dating seriously, this is an exciting time in your life 🎉
Still, it's easy to feel overwhelmed, or even out of touch, in today's the dating world...
Fortunately, I can help!
Today we'll cover six simple steps on how to date in your 40s 👇
If you’re dating at 40, chances are you have a novel's worth of dating experiences in your rearview mirror.
Be those toxic exes, relationship traumas, heartbreak, or dozens of dating faux pas — even if you're Leonardo DiCaprio, dating has had its ups and downs 🎢
Leave the past in the past 👋
Don’t carry your emotional baggage with you into your dating journey ahead.
Your past experiences can absolutely guide you to make the right decisions, but assumptions like "all women are the same" aren't helpful.
If you want different relationships — particularly ones that work on your terms — an open mind is required 👐
Ever told yourself anything like:
If this sounds like you...
All of these sentences are limiting beliefs ❌
They're actively preventing you from progressing in your dating life because you believe that you can’t.
Want to know how to change this?
It’s simple — your brain believes what you tell it 🧠

This is obviously easier said than done, but there are two strategies you should explore:
Once you’ve broken down those limited beliefs and know that you can do it...
The next step is doing it 💥
Here are some ideas to put yourself out there:
There are dating apps for everyone and every age.
Whether you’re into the younger ladies, or the more mature ones, here’s my top dating apps to use in your 40s (plus their average user ages!)
This is perhaps tangential, but worth calling out:
Lots of women in their 20s and 30s want to date guys who are 40+ years old.
Age is just a number, and women value maturity!
If you're here, you’ve lived through 40+ years of life...
You should have a pretty good idea of qualities and values that you’re looking for in a match.
Try listing them, so you can use them as granular criteria ☑️
Once you've listed the things that are of core importance to you, it'll be easier to separate the women who don’t have them, from the women who do 🔍
My last piece of advice is to be honest.
With yourself and with your dates — about who you are, and what you want.
Consider things like:
Whatever the topic, open communication is key. Plus, it’s attractive 🔥
And it makes dating so much easier when you know where you stand from the beginning.
Give honesty a go — there’s a reason they say that it’s the best policy 😉
Hopefully you now feel more equipped to start dating in your 40s.
If you forget everything else...
Remember to always be yourself, and stay true to what you want in life.
