In this week’s episode I speak with Bela Gandhi about the challenges of Dating in your 50’s. It may seem intimidating dating again during menopause but this can actually be the BEST time to date! At this stage in your life, you can really take a step back and take inventory of all your experiences, so that you can move into a new relationship free of your own destructive habits. All the romantic notions of love that our culture pushes on us, tend to be counterproductive. Bela Bela Gandhi will teach you not to chase the butterflies and instant chemistry; what you really want is a slow burn, enjoy really getting to know someone, dating is an adventure!
