Women over 40 - 3 “Hot” Dating Tips for Building Your Dating Confidence

If you’re dating again for the first time in a long time, you could probably use some confidence builders in the form of what I like to call ‘Dating Updating’.
More than likely it’s probably been a while since you’ve done something different with the way you look so a few changes can take you from feeling like a suburban married housewife to a chic, confident and pretty spectacular woman who’s ready to date. See it as a fun investment in yourself as you begin this next chapter in your life!

#1- It All Begins with A New Look
Ask your daughter or a trusted friend for advice on what about your look no longer works for you. Over time, we all have a tendency to do the same styles over and over again. Just think of how many blouses are the same color and style in your closet right now?
Next take a good look in the mirror. Are you happy with the way your hair looks? Is it flattering to the shape of your face? It’s a wise idea to leave trendy styles like severe wedges or spikes to the younger crowd.
These days, we all have grey that needs covering. Does your color enhance your skin tone or does it fade you? Dark hair can make women our age look a bit ghoulish, which is probably why Mother Nature doesn’t give us black hair once we’ve hit 40 plus...

#2 - Add a New Touch of Color to Your Palette
Great Makeup can make you feel like you’re on top of the world. Trained makeup artists at your favorite department store will show you the latest trends for looking great both day and night. Plus, you can replicate the results easily with less expensive makeup purchased elsewhere if you want.
You’re making a lot of changes and change can be hard. I know just trying a new lipstick color can be scary. Be sure to give yourself some time to embrace your new look. Fortunately, hair grows back fairly quickly and makeup can be changed if you aren’t happy with it.

#3- A New Excuse for Shopping
Head to your favorite stores to buy fun dating clothes that are flattering to your shape. If you’re not a shopper, find a Personal Shopper at many of the larger Department Stores to help you out. The store-not you pay them to help you shop.
What’s so great is a personal shopper will coach you into exploring many new and flattering styles you might not have tried on your own. Clothing is an easy and quick fix for feeling good about yourself especially when you wear an outfit that makes you feel like you’re on top of the world. 


It’s worth investing in a few good pieces so when you have a date instead of rummaging through your closet at the last minute feeling totally frustrated with finding nothing to wear, you’ll have pieces to mix and match without having to give it much thought.
By applying these 3 easy steps, you are going to look great! Looking great makes you feel great about yourself and when you feel great, you’re going to feel more confident as you venture into the dating world ready to meet the “Quality Man” you want in your life.

Recovering From Infidelity


Recovering from infidelity is never going to be easy. Whenever a violation of trust has occurred there is always caution on the part of the victim.
This is completely understandable. There is no definitive way to overcome infidelity, but there are lots of possible solutions. The first decision is whether the couple are going to remain together or not after the infidelity.
Either way, the victim will take a long time to heal. Should the couple decide to stay together, there are many different sources of help: counselling, e-books, books, and more recently hypnosis CD's.
 Some people have found benefit from utilising Neuro Linguistic Programming, and also Emotional Freedom Techniques. Whatever method, or possibly several, there will be considerable work to be done in recovering from infidelity.
Trust is based on belief, and one's beliefs are the bedrock of how we move throughout our lives. Some beliefs are much stronger and important than others. Obviously, in the case of romantic attachments, one believes (usually) that one's partner is completely honest, and trustworthy. Coupled with that, is the belief that their partner is completely faithful. These fundamental beliefs are often the foundation of a relationship, and consequently carry powerful emotional attachments.
Just as one set of beliefs are smashed, another set of powerful beliefs replace them. These beliefs are now the complete opposite of trust. Almost everything is viewed with suspicion, and as the impact of the event sinks in, the anger begins to unfold.
Anger is usually high on the scale of emotions when you are recovering from infidelity, alongside humiliation, anxiety, depression, and confusion, and these are the emotions that will need to be assuaged.
As you are recovering from infidelity it may seem that there is very little improvement because the changes are small and almost undetectable. However, with the right guidance and with determined effort and support it is possible to start recovering from infidelity.  None the less, it will be a process that may well take considerable time. Recovering from infidelity is much like recovering from a bereavement.
Usually, when a couple decide to stay together they take decisive steps to change what had brought about the betrayal. This usually involves a process of absolute honesty in stating what the needs of each partner are. Once the needs of each partner are known, the process of recovering from infidelity may begin.


Conversely, if the couple decide to break up, there is still much work needed to recover from the impact of the event. In some cases it may still be necessary to see a counsellor or use some of the other aids available, and would probably be wise to do so.
It can take a long time recovering from post traumatic shock, and it should never be treated lightly. If the issues aren't worked through carefully then it may impact upon a person for more years than necessary, and indeed some people never recover at all it they don't seek some kind of help.

What Makes A Person Likeable and Comfortable To Be With?


If you want to have success in this world, then your ability to make yourself likeable will play an essential role. Find out what makes a person likeable and you will access a very important resource for your personal or professional success.
The truth is there are lots of things that can potentially make a person likeable. Various people have various tastes regarding other people, so there is a lot of leeway here.
But if you take a closer look, you will discover that there are certain key traits that stand out. These traits make a person likeable above all other traits, to most other people. 

1. Being Positive
The people who are most likeable exude positive energy. They are happy, content and optimistic most of the time, and this feeling is contagious. When others interact with them or they’re simply around them, this positive feeling gets passed on.
Basically, because they are positive, they make others be positive. And since this is such a precious thing, it makes them very endearing as individuals. The power of being positive cannot be understated. 

2. Being Confident
Confidence is another trait that’s very appealing. When we perceive that a person is confident, we automatically tend to like them or admire them more, or become attracted to them if they’re a member of the opposite sex.
In a way, confidence suggests that you’re a capable person and you know this. So when you convey confidence, you convey these positive messages. 

3. Liking People
We tend to like in turn the people who like us first. So it’s no coincidence that some of the most likeable people are appreciative of others. They’re confident, but not in a cold, arrogant way, rather in a friendly, humble way. You’ll often hear others describing them as a pleasant person, or a sociable person; these are typically different way to convey that this person likes them and treats them well. It makes them feel appreciated and they appreciate in turn. 

4. Being Fun
Likeable people are fun to be around. You may have noticed this. They joke around, they play around, they don’t take things too seriously and they know how to have a good time, as well as help others have a good time.  And since most of us really wanna have more fun and be around people who help us have fun, this is a very endearing trait. Just this quality alone can increase your likability significantly. 


As you can see, most of these top traits that make a person likeable have to do with your attitude.  Being positive, confident, fun and liking others, these are all attitudes. Indeed, how smart you are, how rich you are, how you dress or how you look influence to a much lesser degree how likeable you are. 

So if you want to be more likeable, focus above all on developing these attitudes. Work on your mindset, improve your image of yourself, others and life, and become a better presence for others to have around. They will like you tenfold more as a result.

Certain Aspects of Mature Dating

There are more and more mature individuals seeking mature dating today with the increasing stress from the workplace and the economy. Most of these mature individuals are working executives who feel the pressure from work and need some way to relax and unwind. One of the more effective ways to relieve stress is through some social interaction.

It is human nature to interact with one another to find solace and peace of mind when troubled. The mature individuals normally seek their own kind of people for some mature dating. This allows the mature individuals to be able to empathize with each other on most subject matters. Such mature dating is more effective than seeing any shrink.
It always feels good to be able to pour out one’s personal take on work or life with people who are in the same category or age bracket. This allows the mature individuals to support and encourage one another through life; hence, there is mutual benefit in mature dating as one dates the same age group party.


There is less expectation in mature dating as the mature parties usually know what they want in a date. There is an upfront honesty and openness between the dating parties to put the parties at ease when on a mature dating session.
With lesser expectations, there is less pressure on mature daters; this in turn leads to an easy time of conversing and relaxing. Both parties feel at ease and comfortable to share about work, hobbies, similarities, opinions and thoughts. However, mature dating parties tend to be a little more formal and courteous on their first date as both are unsure of each other’s expectations or how the true self will surface during the date.

Mature dating programs are very simple; mature daters want some time together in a private environment where both parties can get to know each other. Most mature dating parties would want to check out each other subtly through some simple conversations before further dates are planned. Mature daters do not need elaborate programs although they can afford fine dining and concerts.
Mature dating programs are meant to help the mature daters discover more about each other before proceeding to another phase of their dating spectrum. In today’s modern society, both parties in mature dating are open to planning the program. There is a greater acceptance to both parties’ suggestion for a mature dating program. There is no coercion to push a preferred mature dating program through with mature daters.
