That decision can be pretty liberating – especially when you’re dating in your 40s: There’s no biological clock ticking away, which can put pressure on new relationships. You don’t have to limit yourself to men in your age group Not to feed the cougar cliché, but by the time you reach 40, the social stigma of dating younger men is so passé.

"With men over 35 who have never been married, there tends to be more incidence of both commitment issues and other psychological complications that will make it difficult for that man to have or sustain a marriage," says New York-based psychotherapist Michael Batshaw.
"Conversely, men who are divorced after 35, were married for some time and seem interested in a long-term relationship are a much better risk as a future husband." However, Batshaw notes that "there are always outliers." So, while ABC's story asks a catchy question-- -- the argument that a divorcé is a more suitable potential partner than an eternal bachelor isn't so black and white.
This is one of life’s big mysteries but sometimes I think the key is identifying the right places to look. When you’re over 40, you’re usually pretty comfortable in your own skin You know what you like, and what you don’t.
Maybe you would prefer to hang out at cafes, museums, film festivals and art galleries.
When you see them sitting next to women in their late 20s and 30s you can’t see a significant age difference. You can decide you don’t want children Whether you planned for this or not, there is something liberating about taking baby-making off the table.
Children are not for everyone, but there’s a lot of social pressure on women to procreate.
While unmarried men over the age of, say, 40, aren't looked upon with pity -- as some single women archaically still are -- maybe they should be, suggests a report from WABC in New York on Thursday.
According to the local station, men who've avoided settling down may be less desirable to women than those who have already taken the marital plunge -- then divorced.
"Dating a divorcé is like dating a self-walking dog," she says.
"There's a kind of sharing that people who have been married have learned how to do, that a serial monogamist or a guy who is chronically single won't learn." In my opinion, a previously married man certainly has two key qualities that many women look for in their future husband: 1) previous desirability as a marital partner, and 2) a proven capacity for commitment.
The divorced man she is currently dating has "learned from mistakes," she says.
