No, it shouldn’t feel so daunting.
Striking the dating scene in your 5th decade can feel so… complicated. Most likely, you will find probably be kids into the image, and behind every potential romantic partner is a sheer duration of intimate experience (and a much, a lot longer path of exes). But we would argue that none of the is a negative thing. In reality, if you should be dating as being a forty-something, you are guaranteed in full to be wiser, better at dating, better at once you understand what you need, and a complete lot less impulsive and responsive to rejection.
