When I was growing up, I thought dating ceased at approximately 25 to 27 years of age. Most "adults" I knew, like my older brother and cousins, were hitched by 27, so my theory made sense. By the age of 27, you are several years removed from college, likely already installed in a solid job, all those obligatory one-night-stands are out of the way, and you've had enough time to settle down and find "the one. The idea of dating after 40 simply didn't exist.
While Aunt Debbie may have some wisdom, we'd rather leave it to the pros.
As a mother of two, suddenly finding myself single in my 40s was scary. It's not like women of my age don't already have enough to do; balancing a hectic family schedule with a busy work life, all while trying to stay sociable - but now, to add dating into the mix? That's a lot. When I split with the father of my children after ten years together, I threw myself into dating apps and met someone who I ended up seeing for a year.
