Sometimes our decisions may go wrong or things just don't work out the way you expected. In such cases, it is better to move on and start afresh. Let's get know some tips worth considering if you're setting out to find your true love.
Tips to Consider
Forgive and Forget: It is very important that you forget your past and forgive the person you were in a relationship with. Unless you are over your past, it is difficult to get into a new relationship. You should also be able forgive your own self if the cause of the first break up or divorce were you. It is perfectly alright. You have the right to take your own decisions and live your life on your own terms. So relax and move forward in true sense of the word.
Get Ready for New Endeavors: Gear up and start the good old diet and exercise regimen. Remember, how guys used to fall for your single look during school days. History repeats itself, right? So try to get back in shape again. I know you cannot compete with 20 something chic but be presentable for your age.
Hunt for Hunks: Your new partners are not going to come running to you. So you must socialize and find someone you can probably be interested in. It can be your colleague, an old friend, your boss, or anybody you are interested in. If not, you can search on the net where hundreds of websites provide free online dating services. Try to be friendly with him but few love rules remain the same. The first one is do not come off as someone who is desperately seeking a partner. So do not try to hit on every guy who comes in your vicinity and be patient.
Giving Hints: Try giving him hints that you like him. Let him also know that you are looking forward to spend more time with him. If the guy responds positively, it is better you tell him the truth about your past life and its effects on your present.
Dressing Up: I know your heart is still 20 but not your body, so dress age-appropriately. You may have a great body but it is better to dress decently the first time you go for a date with him. Instead of looking hot and sexy you must aim at looking classy and chic. You can adorn an outfit you are comfortable with and match it up with sleek pair of sandals. Just remember to look confident.
Mannerisms: Follow the necessary manners and just be yourself. Do not try to pretend someone you are not. Be proud of yourself and be content. This confidence will surely swipe him off his feet.
What to Talk: Talk anything but your brutal and boring past life. You are not going for senior dating, you are just 40 something. Start with some light topic and remember to keep your humorous side alive. So feel that you are still twenty and talk about things that revolve around you two and your possible relationship. Do not shy away from trying out some flirting tips with him and do not forget to dash a little humor with every line.
Enjoy: At end of the day it is important that you must enjoy what you are doing. It is your decision to try to make it a success. If not, at least enjoy every bit of it. Let him woo you and treat you like someone special. Recreate that magic and fall in love once again!
