So many women – especially senior women – are in search of Mr. Right.  Women tend to live longer than men, so some women think that the pickings might be slim when you reach a certain age.  This is far from the truth.  There are ways to find and attract that special guy.  But there are also obstacles that stand in your way.

First and foremost, you need to get rid of that extra baggage you’re carrying around with you.  Past relationships can affect future relationships, but don’t let them.  What happened in the past is the past.  You don’t have to dwell on it and let it be part of your present or your future.businesswoman

Many women have low self-esteem that can influence their attractive qualities that are naturally inside them.  You need to change your way of thinking here and convince yourself that you’re worthy of a good relationship to complement everything that you are.

Low self-esteem is an aspect of your personality that has been cultivated over years and years.  Let go and let yourself be that wonderful person that lives inside of you.  Tell yourself positive things including that you deserve to be loved and you deserve to continue living a healthy and full life.  Confidence is the ultimate sexy trait in women, but avoid being too confident.  A little humility is sexy as well.

If you think there just aren’t any good men out there, you’re wrong.  This is a belief that has been bantered around for years.  Some of this is rooted in past experiences.  Still more is because you’ve set your expectations too high.  No one is perfect and if you expect to find someone who is perfect, you’ll be disappointed.

As a mature woman, you have many great qualities that you should embrace and use to your advantage.

Remember when you were in the first throes of a new romance, all of a sudden you got hit on a lot? That’s because you radiated self-confidence; you were loved. Now, in your mature adult years, you should have plenty of self confidence in your ability to balance a job, the ex, the kids, the bank account, the aging parents, friends, etc. Self confidence is the biggest turn-on and once you’ve reached 50, you’ve got plenty of it.

You’ve been there and done that too! Now you know what you like. You are a better lover than you were at 20 because you know what turns you on, and you should be comfortable telling your partner exactly what you need. Indulge yourself.

And if you feel like you have to be demure and shy, get ride of that!  You have the right to be a strong, sensual woman – even as a senior citizen.  You don’t have to be that coy little chanteuse anymore.  Assert yourself and enjoy the results!

Older women tend to be more daring as well.  They’re the ones signing up for all that adventure travel. Odds are you’ll find more older women than men on cruises to the Antarctic, treks through Nepal and gorilla-watching expeditions in Africa.

Women are more liberated when the kids move out and allow them to reclaim the lives they put on hold decades ago with their first delivery. This liberation is empowering and can be very alluring.beach wedding
