Happiness and fulfillment are not destinations, they’re journeys.
And the journey to find love after fifty may be easier than you think because it’s never too late to welcome someone new and wonderful into your life.
We are all on an odyssey during this lifetime and never know what surprises may lie right around the corner just waiting for us to claim them.
But, we must be willing to set aside any lack of confidence and not be afraid to go after what we want. In other words….
“Don’t wait for your ship to come in. Swim to it!”
Which is another way of saying, “Set your intentions, then chase them down.”
So if you happen to be seeking a romantic partner, instead of choosing the path that seems safest just because you want to avoid any risk a fear of failure, I urge you to embrace a new outlook by repeatedly telling yourself that you’re in the process of attracting a romantic partner.
We all need love and companionship, whether we’re willing to admit it or not.
After all, we’re living longer lives, and everyone needs a trusted friend or companion to talk to about everyday life, and to go places with.
So what is it that men want and that women love?
By now, most of us have accepted the fact that men and women are definitely wired differently.
Last week, we discussed several ways in which testosterone–which fuels the body and mind of a man–is far different from the estrogen that courses through the heart and soul of a women.
Both are powerfully different driving forces. (To review last week’s blog, please visit: http://janfowler.com/what-men-want-and-what-women-love/
Many men may not realize that it’s okay to be upfront and communicate what they’re looking for when they first meet someone special.
Most seem to be seeking a lady who is respectful of their feelings, needs, and viewpoints. And someone who gives them space and a sense of freedom.
Men also enjoy receiving praise and approval, such as being complimented on having selected the perfect place to meet you or take you on a date.
Men love to hunt, often in packs, most likely stemming from their caveman days.
After all, from the arenas of major sporting events to the floors of financial trading institutions, men frequently experience a powerful rush of testosterone when they’re part of the pack.
They not only love the hunt but also enjoy the chase.
And women love that chase as well because women enjoy being hunted and pursued.
When a woman spots a man on the prowl–provided that he’s alone, of course–she is especially smart when she finds a way to become a stand-out in the crowd, thereby making it easy for the guy to approach her.
This is especially true if she wants to be his prey.
Maybe she will assume a sexy attitude, sway to imaginary music in the background, and shine it on just enough to convey the message that she’s open to being his prey.
By making eye contact and putting her sexual energy out there she is signaling her open desire to bring it on.
And men are generally beguiled by a women with a playful spirit.
Speaking of playful spirits, have you noticed how very fashionable it’s become for women to display their playful spirits in all aspects of modern life by wearing wildly colorful wrap-around neck or body scarves?
The same could be said about their glittery nails and bling earrings.
Men are attracted to women with a sparkle, however you define it.
Men also like women who are tender and kindhearted, as well as happy and loving.
Women often say they want a man with a good sense of humor who laughs easily and is not a whiner because whiners are no fun at all.
Men generally like to take the lead in inviting the lady to meet up or join him so it’s always a great idea for the lady to step back and allow the man to move at his own pace.
But above all, please don’t be afraid to take a risk. It’s worth it because it’s true that when we fall in love, we do indeed see the world around us differently.
And there’s nothing more wonderful than when our lives become turbo-charged by that unmistakable “love is in the air” magic.
So good luck, and never never never give up on meeting someone who’s just right for you.
While waiting, I urge you to remain open to love everywhere you go by projecting an aura that conveys, ”I am loveable.”
Men and women are making new connections each day, and you can make a breakthrough in your life too.
I did! So hooray for love!
