“I’m Over 30, 40, 50, And I’m Looking For A Man. Am I Doomed?”

June 5, 2019

It may sound surprising, but in the era of modern technologies and social communication, many people still feel lonely. The ability to increase the number of friends through virtual communication doesn’t save from isolation in reality.

For example, in the UK, according to a study, every 7th person aged from 45 to 54 suffers from loneliness. Especially sensitive are middle-aged women who don’t have stable relationships with men.

If there is no partner, is it forever?

The lack of a partner worries the majority of women from 30. It increases when there is no spouse after 40-50. Some had a bad marriage experience. Others have never had a marriage proposal. Such women begin to develop complexes, thinking they are ugly or unworthy.

Social stereotypes and parental requirements about the necessity of marriage, creation of a family, and future descendants have a great influence. Moreover, if this doesn’t impact you, others simply think something is wrong with you.

Psychologist Mila Levchuk advises what to do in such cases:

You should understand that all your fears and negative expectations are just words in your head. The only thing that makes them reasonable is your beliefs. Try to think about something different, more positive experience. Other words in your head will have the same influence, but at least they won’t spoil your mood and waste your energy.

We have prepared another recommendation for you. We have found some real-life examples of when women over 40 met their partners and became happy. This is really encouraging, increases self-esteem, and gives hope. So, here are a few celebrity women who have found love after 40.
