I’m often asked whether I offer dating and relationship coaching for single men dating after 40. But I DO help men by helping women who are dating after 40. )One of the most transformational ways I support women is by helping you better understand GROWNUP men.
(Guys, if you’re reading this…get in touch if you want to share!)Below are the common types of women single grownup men have told me about. Read the general description of each here, or start reading more about each Femitype, starting with The Princess — click here.She hasn’t mastered the life skill of introspection, so she’s blinded by her bitterness.It doesn’t occur to her that she might be the problem even though every date and relationship seems to end the same way.Her life isn’t going the way she wants and she just can’t figure out why.
With men, she might complain that they just “don’t get her,” but the truth is that she’s giving them every reason to head for the hills with her off-handed comments and negativity.
Like you, the men you’re dating have lived and learned. The only way you can empathize is to know their side of the story.
Just like how you’ve dated your share of challenging types of men like the disappearing/reappearing Pinger, the Couch Potato, and the older-and-balder-than-his-profile-guy…men meet and enter into relationships with less-than-impressive types of women.
She mistrusts men and often blames herself for the rejection she’s felt, believing that she just wasn’t good enough.
She says things like “I need him to say he wants a relationship, and then I’ll open up,” or “Once he gets to know me, he probably won’t like me.”The Scaredy Cat may put her guy through lots of tests before she feels confident that he’s truly interested.
She insists he give and give with little or no reciprocity; after all, he’s The Man and she’s his prize!
