Ladies, why is it that the older we get, the harder it is for us to jump back into the dating scene? Regardless of whether our game plan is to settle down after we find Mr. Right or have fun with Mr. Right Now, it's almost as if we're expected to turn the lights off after we hit a certain age. if you've ever found yourself hesitating from putting yourself out there because you think you've reached your prime, we're going to have to stop you right in your tracks. It doesn't matter if you're forty, fifty or sixty: When it comes to love, age really is nothing but a number and a state of mind.
Dating expert Amy Schoen goes the extra mile to back this up by saying that it's all about putting everything in perspective.

In fact, getting older means nothing when it comes to the dating game; if we're really serious about finding the one, the most important thing is making sure that our date is on the same page. Be upfront about your intentions and what you're looking for; after all, there's some truth to the advice our parents used to give us when we were younger: Honesty really is the best policy.
