40 And Single: It’s Not Too Late To Meet Someone Great 2023

Updated: January 28, 2023

It can be a shock to find yourself in your forties, and newly single again. Maybe you thought you’d be with your ex forever, and you never saw this coming. Maybe you thought you’d have found your person by now, but for whatever reason, you haven’t. Or maybe you’ve been dating for a while now, and you’re struggling to find someone great.

1. Get online

If you’ve not yet tried online dating, this is the best place to start when you’re 40 and single. Especially if hanging out in bars and clubs isn’t your thing anymore, and your single social circle has shrunk over the past few years. It may be a whole new world to you that didn’t exist the last time you were dating, but don’t panic. It’s not as scary once you’ve got a few matches, and sent your first few messages.

2. Make an effort

When you’re in your 20s, you can get away without trying very hard and there can be a lot of game playing. But as you get older, putting in effort becomes much more important – for both sexes. You don’t know what the ex-partners of the people you’re dating would have been like.

3. Know what you want

When you find yourself 40 and single, you have had enough life experience to what you want. Your past experiences may have accumulated baggage, but you can use this insight to your advantage. Divorces, exes, children, and so many different experiences give you invaluable wisdom and knowledge about yourself and what you value in relationships.

4. Open your heart

If you reach 40 without having had your heart broken, you’re one of the lucky ones. And if you have had a bad experience, it can cause you to close your heart. But if you want to meet someone new, you have to find a way to be open again.

5. Reclaim your confidence

It’s easy to doubt yourself when you find yourself single at 40. You might be thinking, “what’s wrong with me? Why can’t I get my life together? Why is it so easy for everyone else to find love?”. And I understand where you’re coming from. But throwing yourself a pity party isn’t helping anyone. Sometimes life won’t go as planned, and that’s okay.

6. Be patient

Putting age aside, many of us are in a rush to find love. But you know what they say? You just can’t hurry love. You can show up, make an effort, and do everything right, and you still might be in for a little wait.
