Dating at middle age is hard. You’re at a stage in your life where you have an established career, a home, maybe a few kids, and a lot of emotional baggage. That means all of your potential dates are carrying the same baggage. Life is both rewarding and incredibly difficult. So we have a choice to make. Do we let ourselves become more cynical and pessimistic? Or do we continue to work harder at improving ourselves and being kind to those around us?
