You can learn about what someone looks like, what they want out of a relationship, their interests, their pet peeves, and more which can help you make an informed choice of who to date.

    Is your cousin inviting you over for a BBQ? Did you see a flyer for a book club? Feel like going for a hike? You never know who you can meet just through your existing social network. Many women don't give themselves the chance by avoiding new social situations and only sticking to what is comfortable.

    Here's a super cool tip for women in their 40s. Some men love it when you play around like an immature teenager; it triggers their sense of responsibility and they shower you with affection and care. In short, make him feel like he's the man in charge. If you're interested in an older guy, do NOT make the first move. They've got to have the guts to tell you how you feel.

    Do NOT let him be submissive or overly possessive. If you ever feel that happening, take a step back and tell him how you feel immediately. This applies to you too, ladies.
