When it comes to dating in our 40s, are we “lowering” our standards, are people lowering them for us, or could it simply be that we’re broadening our horizons?
I refuse to believe that my life is any less rich and eventful than anyone else because I’m on life’s journey by myself. I am not unique. This is the life of countless post-40 women (and men for that matter) that I know. None of us have side-stepped life waiting on our ideal mate. We embrace life and all of its wondrous experiences.
Today a reader is presenting an alternative view to the theory that every woman, and certainly every woman in her 40s, wants to be in a relationship. She’s alone and thrives in it. That’s not so unusual as I have many single female friends in their 40s and older who enjoy their single status. Where I think she’s different is, well, read for yourself…

I wasn’t one of the thousands of women who loved Sex and the City while it was on TV. So when the movie came out, I didn’t rush out to see it that first weekend. Or the second. In fact, I just saw it for the first time earlier this year on DVD. And once again, the portrayals were great and the relationships realistic. That is until Mr. Big and Carrie got married.
