I read an amusing meme the other day which said the following…
Dating after 30 is easy, it’s like riding a bike.Unknown
But the bike is on fire, and the ground is on fire.
Everything is on fire, because you are in hell.
Imagine then what it’s like when you’re over 40, or 50, or more…
What with all the dos and the don’ts, the dating sites and the apps, the rules and the unasked for advice, the scams and the narcissists, the liars and the manipulators, the time wasters and the players, the damaged and the deranged, the vulnerable and the ever hopeful – it really is a zoo out there.
But caught up in all the detritus are the good people simply looking for other good people with whom to form a relationship. There’s no sure-fire shortcut, and as for luck, well…. .
Luck? Luck is hard work – and realising what is opportunity and what isn’t.Lucille Ball
Dating doesn’t need to be hard. Finding a relationship – the right relationship – can feel hard. But if you do the work to become relationship ready, you’ll be in a good position to snap up the right opportunity while side-stepping the wrong one.
Keep a sense of humour and remember – when you’re truly relationship ready, it’s always them, not you 🙂
Good luck & good hunting!
