Dating Over 40: New YouTube Video – Tips on Flirting

Do you flirt? When asked this question, most of my over 40 dating coaching clients  say things like:

  • Flirt? I don’t know how!
  • I haven’t flirted in years!
  • I can’t remember how to flirt.
  • I never have been a flirt.
  • Why should I flirt?
  • Who would I flirt with? (That’s a whole topic in itself isn’t it?)

Flirting is an art and every woman is capable and can do it.  Sometimes this skill has been on the back burner for quite a while, especially for those dating over 40.  Other times women have made a conscious choice to avoid this behavior out of misconceptions or a desire to focus on business and make it in a man’s world.

Whatever your reason, if you want romance in your life, it’s time to dust off those innate skills that are every woman’s birthright. Use it or lose it baby. And believe me, using your flirting power and feminine charm  is so much more fun!

Misconceptions from many of my over 40 dating coaching clients include:

  • I don’t want to be a tease
  • I’m not really interested in him
  • I want to flirt with just the right guy
  • I don’t want to lead a guy on

But the truth about flirting is – it’s a way of being friendly and interacting with people. There is no promise or teasing or leading anyone on when you have brief eye contact and  smile. But it is a way to acknowledge that someone has noticed you. Appreciate those people who appreciate you! Then you’ll both feel good.

By the way, if you are waiting for the perfect guy to flirt with, chances are you won’t be that great at it. Or your attempts may not seem like a natural part of your feminine charm. Why? Because you won’t have had enough practice! That’s why you might want to think about flirting as a fun way to interact with people, not just the perfect prospect.

I have finally completed a trio of videos that are up on and ready for viewing. The first one is below – Flirting Tips Part 1

I’ll share the other two this week as well. Please feel free to make a comment if you like the video after watching it on youtube – comments help the video become more popular.

For anyone who does make a comment, please let me know by email or contact form on the site and I’ll send you a free ebook entitled “Attract Your Next Great Mate” –  an informative compilation from many dating experts including me and The Dating Goddess.

Enjoy and happy flirting!

  1. What timing! A refresher on flirting and being open/friendly with men couldn’t come at a better time as the relationship I was in (just limping along of late) was finally done.
    I’ve been divorced fifteen years and only had two dating relationships in all that time, each roughly a year long – and I “knew” neither would culminate in a long-term relationship but there weren’t exactly many options out there either. After divorce I initially focused all my time/energy first on raising kids then growing my business. Why is it I’m fearless to meet new people for business but am chicken sh!t and tongue tied when it comes to meeting new men socially?? I have had my share of internet dating, speed dating and “just-lunch” dating without getting too many second dates so clearly I need to figure out why….

    • Deborah, Its interesting isn’t it? To be friendly in one arena but not another. Less risk for business or perhaps more confidence for business connections. But that is a matter of practice. The more you get out there to meet men for dating purposes, the experience you’ll have so the more confident and comfortable you’ll be.
