An old Swedish proverb says that the best place to find a helping hand is at the end of your arm.
While it is probably more common for men to initiate contact with single women over 40 on the Internet, women sometimes take the first step. Since it is initially so anonymous, there is little downside to doing so, except perhaps some hurt feelings if someone doesn’t respond or doesn’t do so in a gentlemanly way. If you do not get a response, or a good one, just think of it like baseball. “Well I swung at that pitch and missed,(maybe it was the wrong one to take a swing at too), but there will be more to swing at!” Just try again. Do not take it personally. Men may not have responded because they found someone else in the meantime, didn’t think it was a good match for some reason or just decided to stop looking for a while.
You are a match for a man out there who wants and needs the love you have to give. We all need to be willing to make changes to become the improved and better person we can be, not only for ourselves, but so we have more to bring to a loving relationship.
I’m happy for any love, romance and happiness you will have and hope what you read here may encourage and assist you in finding it.
Oprah Winfrey serves as a role model for many women, as well as men. Rising from very modest circumstances, she has worked herself to a position of wealth, power and influence. She has used this position to help better the lives of women through the Oprah Winfrey Show, The Angel Network, Oprah.com and “O” Magazine. Her positive attitude, example and concern for others is well known. The best thing I can say to you in conclusion is succinctly summarized in the byline used by Oprah.com:
“Live your best life.”
An ok existence is just that. But why not have a great time instead! Remember what the lovely actress Meredith Baxter said many years ago in the Loreal commercial? Loreal shampoo may have been more expensive, but she used it anyway because she said ” I’m worth it!” Well you are worth it too!
Have the best life you can. Start trying some of the things suggested here and keep dating, or start dating again. Love and romance are meant for you too, not just for other people. Pull for yourself to find the loving and caring man of your dreams.
