You have to be open-minded

Dating past the age of 40 or 50 can be tricky because, at this age, you’ve lived a life filled with hard-learned lessons. You have wisdom. And some of that wisdom might have crystalized, making it hard to see the full picture with a potential partner. “Sometimes people over 50 will come to me a little bit rigid. They say ‘This is what my life looks like. I’m not willing to change anything to invite another person into it. This is my vision for a partner and they have to fit into this,'” Hoffman says. “It’s a much more fixed mindset than a growth and experiential mindset. Sometimes that is the thing I have to shift in people.”
