Whether it’s an established career, well-raised kids, or stories from those years you spent backpacking around Europe, you have lived.

Sure, honesty does go a long way when you have the lines of communication open. But even if you’re saying all the right things you’ll still fall short if your actions don’t match up to your words,” says Boe McCrimmon Jr, a relationship expert and host of the “I say that to say this” podcast. An older woman has more life experience, which can sometimes mean emotional baggage.
While the rule says that a 40-year-old woman could date a 27-year-old, most 40-year-old women don’t feel comfortable doing that, according to researchers.
