Dating a 40-Year-Old Man: 5 Essential Tips 2022

Updated: December 2, 2022

If you’re looking for the adrenaline rush of drama, a salt-and-peppery fox isn’t your guy. Drama is likely the last thing in the world he wants because he’s been there and done that. He knows what he wants, and that isn’t a woman who’s going to blow up his phone all hours of the day.

1. Be clear and honest

If you’re into him, don’t feel like you need to be coy. Men are used to having to bat and strike out a lot, and he’ll have decades of this behind him. He will greatly appreciate it if you make your interest clear, and that you don’t keep him guessing. If you aren’t into this guy, be clear about that as well! He doesn’t want his time wasted, and his feelings won’t get hurt if you realize that he isn’t the guy for you. Let him down easy. He can take it.

2. Don’t play games

The “wait three days after you get a number” rule doesn’t apply to a 40 year old man. If he’s interested in you, he’ll reach out. He isn’t going to treat love and relationships like a game because both of you could end up losing out. That’s why it’s important that you give up any pretense of playing games yourself.

3. Don’t assume he isn’t going to want to have a family

Just because he may be divorced and could have kids, don’t assume that he doesn’t desire a second family. Men in their 40s are usually looking for partners. They know the value of companionship. If you’re the lady for him and if he’s the man for you, know you’re going to have someone in your life willing to meet you halfway. A true teammate.

4. Give him his space

Men in their 40s are likely to be professionals who go to bed early at night and wake up early every morning. You’ll need to respect that he’s a busy man who won’t be able to respond immediately to your text messages. Even if you can’t pay attention to your own work at all because this guy is on your mind, respect that he needs space to take care of his responsibilities, and use that time to take care of your own as well.

5. Communicate

Being straightforward and direct goes a long way, and so does making sure to continue to communicate what you’re feeling, wanting, etc. A man in his 40s is more comfortable expressing himself and more willing to listen to you as well.
