Dating can be a challenge at any age but add menopause and you might want to run for the covers (or nearest fan). With mood swings, sleep issues, and weight gain many women don’t feel as sexy and their sexual desire just isn’t what is used to be. When a woman doesn’t feel her best she tends to not take care of herself and this can add to the other issues of menopause. But this doesn’t have to happen. Women are beautiful, sexy, and magnetic at any age. Here are some tips:
Take Care of Yourself
Eat right, exercise; enjoy your “empty nest” by doing things that YOU like. All of these things will lead to making you feel better about yourself and men will notice! You don’t have to be thinnest or sexiest because men find confidence the most attractive component of a woman. Embrace Yourself!
Get Out There
No one met their future mate by sitting on the couch. If you want a partner then do something. Join a club, sign up for online dating; meet other people who have similar likes. Most important, do what you love and you will meet others with the same inclinations.
Enhance Your Libido
One of the biggest complaints I hear from women is the lack of sexual desire. Exercise and a healthy diet will help but we also need to focus on our minds. Think sexy thoughts and you will feel sexy. Work on the process of getting ready and create experiences. Enjoy being the sensual woman you are. You will be surprised on how just feeling sexy and beautiful will lead to an increase in confidence and spice up your sex life.
Herbal supplements like ginkgo biloga, ginseng and maca have been used throughout the years to boost the sex drive. They might not work for all but the good news is they won’t hurt!
As with any physical and emotional issues, talk to your practitioner and have a thorough exam to determine if your symptoms are a normal progression of menopause of something else.
