For many men over 40, dating can be a challenge. It’s easy to fall into a routine and make excuses for why you’re not doing better with women, such as not having time for dating.
But the truth is that sometimes these excuses are all just said to avoid doing the hard work required to attract more dates with desirable escorts. Take a closer look at these concrete steps that will help get you more dates as an older man while also improving your self-esteem and quality of life overall:
Stop Being So Afraid Of Rejection
It’s a part of life, and it doesn’t mean that you’re a loser or that the other person doesn’t like you. If they say no, move on and try again with someone else. Don’t take rejection personally, as you can’t do anything about it anyway, and keep hoping for the best.
Keep Your Sense Of Humour
If you’re not naturally funny, don’t worry, as you don’t have to be like Woody Allen or Jerry Seinfeld. Just keep in mind that if you take yourself too seriously and come across as boring, then no one will want to spend time with you on a date or even just hang out.
The same goes for being afraid to laugh at yourself when something goofy happens during the course of an evening out together. You’ll be much happier if you’re comfortable in your own skin instead of trying too hard all the time. This makes it easier for others to feel relaxed when in your company and makes you seem more approachable as well.
Work On Your Body Language
Body language is a significant factor in attracting women. It’s not just about how you look but also how you carry yourself. If you’re going to be successful with women, then your body language must convey confidence and assertiveness.
Don’t slouch or cross your arms when talking to someone. Instead, stand up straight and keep both feet on the ground with hands open at the sides or in front as if holding a drink. This will make you appear more relaxed than standing too stiffly or being overly fidgety with hands behind your back, making people think you are hiding something.
Learn How To Flirt
Flirting is an art, and it’s one that many people need help with. If you’re over 40 and single, the last time you flirted was probably in high school or college, and even then, it may not have been very successful.
Flirting isn’t exactly like riding a bike: You won’t just pick up where you left off with this skill after so long without practice. But don’t worry, with some practice, anyone can get good at flirting again.
This is a great time to be a man over 40, as you have so much to offer, and plenty of women want to date you. When you improve your confidence level, that alone can help your dating game. When you feel better about yourself, it also shows in how others perceive you.
