Let’s start a movement called the unfun daters where we treat our dates like potential life partners instead of bottom feeders.
It took an archaic husband-hunting manual for me to stop I settling for less than I wanted.
I was shocked at all the criticisms I received from men when I started dating in middle age. Instead of taking them to heart, I should have just walked away.
I finally realized that many middle aged daters were living in the past. Dating was an exercise in revenge against the people who’d failed them.
I wanted someone who was invested, and that meant caring about what I cared. A dead air conditioner showed me I'd found the right person.
