Think about it. And lastly, the recently separated woman is dating again. Who has time for food?! So, how do you feel when you drop 10 pounds? Most people would say they feel confident, sexy, that they love the feeling of their clothes practically falling off of them. Most would say they see themselves as being more attractive, right? You would think. But, let me take you into the mind of the recently separated 40 something woman. Being someone who lost about 10 pounds right off the bat, I felt anything but pretty and sexy and confident.
I was beyond insecure. Who is going to want me? I felt defeated.
Here are the reasons why:. I had zero self esteem when it came to my professional ability, and figured the only skills I had now were diaper changing, bottle feeding and house cleaning. I was very stressed because I now had to think about what I was going to do for work, with no current computer skills and no belief in myself.
I think when two people are in an unhappy, unhealthy marriage, which could be for years both are losing self-worth every minute they stay together. Or, maybe you are the one who wants out of the marriage. Maybe you hate yourself a little bit because of that. Being in such a volatile and unhealthy relationship had really taken a toll on how I felt about myself. I managed to screw up the most serious relationship I ever had.
That made me feel like a loser. I also felt selfish. My kids were on vacation Recently separated and looking my ex, so I had no child care issues. Something made me accept. Upstairs I went, searching for a cute outfit. When I walked into the bar, my friend came rushing over to me. I realized that we were the only two girls at the place. A few minutes later, another man approached me.
My heart stopped when I saw him because he was seriously drop dead gorgeous. He was at least 10 years younger than me. He introduced himself with a huge grin that almost gave me a heart attack. The two of us would end up talking for the next two hours! What was funny about the whole night was, it never occurred to me that he was interested in me.
My low self-esteem had caused me to give up any possible notion that he or anyone else would find me attractive. I seriously just thought he thought I was interesting and nice. Then, he leaned over and kissed me. We kissed for a long time and then he asked me for my phone. I think my drive home that night was the turning point in my newly separated life.
He did call and we ended up dating for a few months. But, had he decided never to call me again, the mold had already been broken. I was a newly separated divorced girl who had gone from hopeless, insecure and timid, to confident, poised and ready to face the world as an older version of my best self. What a waste!

Divorce is a massive karmic kick. Part of the continued heartbreak, but a small price to pay for the rewards of a refreshing new love that suits me so much better. He accepts me and wants me muffin top and all. I separated at 40 and almost divorced at I had high hopes for enjoying dating despite my ex leaving me for another woman and introducing her to our kids while we were still living under the same roof.
However the reality has been harsh. I have been chatted up by men who have told me they will sleep with me for money, or who have just wanted a text relationship but nothing physical or by short 60 year old men.
Every decent age appropriate guy is not into me. I am tall and thin, too flat chested but felt really beautiful inside and out but my inner flame is dying. Sex and love or any kind of intimacy are denied to me at such a young age.
I live in France maybe that is why it is so tough as very few men over 5ft6. Seems I will have to get used to this. He is out Recently separated and looking. I promise!! Here—this will make you feel good. All those jerks are a good thing because they are helping you count down to the good guy!
You deserve to have love. Being divorced myself, and currently single having had a year long relationship with a girlfriend ended. I find your blog refreshing. Believe me as a red blooded male. Forty something women are the sexiest, most confident, and fun women I have ever met. Great blog! I agree with Graham, women in their 40s are more attractive in some ways then women in their 30s. Nothing is as unattractive as desparation.
