People ask me all the time whether I offer dating and relationship coaching for single men. So I thought I’d tell you about the experience men have when they’re trying to “date like a grownup.”If you’ve read my e Book, 7 Secrets to Finally Finding Love after 40, you know that I believe strongly that empathizing with men is absolutely essential to your dating and relationship success.

Men and women are different in many ways, but we’re more the same than you may think. We all have dating disappointments and horror stories.
)Just like we can meet the same types of guy over and over, men can do the same with women.
Here are some of the types of women men deal with as they date and relate.
