#5 Waiting to date until the kids are grown.
This is another major mistake single women make. Justin Beiber’s mom promised him she wouldn’t date until he was 18. Thank goodness she had him so young, so she is still young enough to have her pick of men. The older you get, the wiser you get as they say. You aren’t getting any hotter though. Youth and looks fade, and let’s face it, people are attracted to these things first. Use it before you lose it. Lots of women already know men date younger. Even if the trend is reversing as some might argue, the older you are, the harder it is to find someone to date. People are paired off. Finding a good one is tough. Get out there and date.
