Single After 40: Why It’s a Good Thing 

By: Lorii Abela

Being in a relationship is very important to most people, and a lot of them feel that, if you’re still single after you turn 40, then there must be something wrong with you. Well, if you are one of these people, stop and desist right there!

First and foremost, keep in mind that being single after 40 isn’t something to be ashamed about. Sure, most of your friends and colleagues might be married, or at least be in long-term relationships by this time, but who’s keeping count? If it matters that much to you, try counting how many truly have happy marriages, or have divorced by this time. Heck, you can even try counting how many of these people have played the scene looking for that special someone and failing. Remember, just because you don’t fit into that outdated view of being with someone before you hit 40 doesn’t mean that being in a relationship is not the thing for you.

You need to keep in mind that getting married at a young age is actually a frame of mind from a long time ago, and that these days, being single after 40 does have its advantages. A lot of professionals actually choose to be single in their earlier years because this is the time that they are looking for a stable financial position for themselves, and it is not easy juggling both a thriving career and nurturing a strong relationship with another person. For them, it’s better to be single after 40 so that they can be financially and socially stable before they settle down with another person.

Indeed, with the average lifespan of a person being around 75 years or more these days, 40 is actually considered to be the new 30! You can find so many attractive, intelligent and single people who are looking to build a relationship who are 40 years or older. It’s actually not hard to find people who are still single after 40 and are just now looking to start a serious relationship with a person. Whether you’re looking on the Internet, or using a more traditional method such as hanging out in bars or parks, you will most likely run into someone who is still single in their 40’s, and is looking for someone to just share a simple conversation with. Take a chance! For all you know, it could turn into something more.

Remember, you’re already single after 40 years old. Why rush into a relationship now? Take your time. Learn more about the person you’re starting to get to know. You won’t regret it!
