Those unmet expectations can leave us questioning the stability of our relationship and connection. Crave a stronger relationship - Learn the Love Languages. Someone can love you like crazy but a relationship can only last if both rules respect each other.
The world today is full of 'helpful' advice - useful tips about finding your inner goddess, meeting the men of your dreams and stumbling on true love.
You don't want to hear it, but, there are same basic rules of dating as a women, post thirty-five, that are worth following I know, I know, you don't feel it, and we're all looking younger these days, but mother nature doesn't lie and, like it or not, you are beginning to swim in a pool of younger fish.
Which isn't necessarily a bad thing give me Angelina Jolie over Emma Watson any day but it does mean you need to be realistic about the kind of men you're going for. Because the bastard about life is, that most thirty-five-year-old men are looking for a very different thing to most thirty-five-year-old woman.
They are in their playboy prime years whilst you are looking to settle down - and a forty-year-old man is far more likely to be thinking marriage and kids than a thirty-three-year-old one. Sure, if the subject comes up, it's fair to mention it's something that's on your radar, but ask a man his five-year plan on your first date and he'll be out that door quicker than you can say 'cheque please'.
Having said that, if you are a dating a guy who is clearly a player or just in it for a bit of fun, stop wasting your time. We all look younger and feel younger these days, however, nature would suggest otherwise.
I'm all for casual sex with barmen you know are never going to call you again, at any age, but then I'm not looking for a husband - if commitment is something you want, then act serious about it and stop wasting time with guys who are never going to give you any. Once you've decided to stop dating time-wasters both in age - not their fault, and attitude - their fault it's time to think about your expectations.
From expectations to height and income, the older women get the higher they want them to be. Nobody is perfect, yourself included, so expecting someone to have the full package is going to set you back a long way in your search for a happy ending.

The only thing that should be of importance in a potential new partner is chemistry, everything else The beauty of opening your search is that you'll be surprised at what you find and who you meet. The narrower your criteria, the less likely you are to find someone within it.
And actually, it really is often the case that love turns up in the places you least expect it.
But you've got to give people a chance - there is such a thing as a grower ahem and a first date especially when online dating is an unnatural environment, sometimes it takes a bit of time for a person's real personality to shine through. Whether it's online dating that's your bag or you'd prefer to meet someone more 'naturally' - you've got to be in it to win it. If I had a pound for every 'dating guru' that had said love finds everyone eventually I'd have my own private island by now.
It's bullshit. Love doesn't find you, you have to get off your backside and find it - by which I mean peeling yourself off the sofa, and getting the hell out there If you spend your life envisaging the perfect man and the life you're going to have with him, you should probably invest in a few cats now and save yourself the bother down the road - because living off dreams gets you nowhere.
Focusing more on what someone might have, be and give you is like watching a Disney film and making that your life goal. And, perhaps most importantly, don't forget why you're dating. Relax and enjoy it - because one day you will be in that LTR you've spent so long looking for and dream of the days you were once footloose and fancy free.
