Differences are OK - the point is, you both need to bring something to the relationship. It's like building a house - you need the basic foundations for the house to stay up, just like you need to give 50:50 for a relationship to stay strong.
As a dating coach, I'd say that - depending on what you're looking for - this is OK if it's said in a jokey way. Over 80% of Cougars are looking for fun with no commitment - in other words, they just want great sex!

When I ask new clients what they want in a partner, most of them say they want someone who's loyal, romantic, intelligent and cultured. These are all worthy attributes that are great to have - but actually, the key to a happy, long lasting relationship is kindness.

It's easy to take each other for granted, especially when you're in a long term relationship - but the fact is, the grass isn't always greener! When you've found the one, you need to value them - especially on Valentine's Day!

It's also an ego boost - we all want to feel wanted, and women of a certain age have often spent decades in a marriage where they've been neglected, and taken for granted. Life often gets routine, and many of my female clients have told me they've spent a lifetime working, cooking and cleaning, with barely any sex, and conversation that consists of the odd grunt! Where's the fun in that?

We are turning into a society where technology is taking over our lives - men are on the Xbox and messing around with their gadgets, and us ladies are watching our favourite soaps. I totally get it - log fire, glass of wine and no make-up on is great! It's a bonus when you don't have to take it off later - happy days!

Alpha-dating is a way to put the excitement, mystery and fun back into your relationship by going week by week (or month by month) and taking it in turns to go through the alphabet, coming up with a different date beginning with each letter of the alphabet. For example A could be for archery, get out Cupid 's bow and arrow and put the love back into your life!

Dress to impress! First impressions do count and we all judge a book by its cover as much as we like to pretend we don't! We sum a person up within the first 30 seconds based on how they dress and what they look like.

So we all know how nerve racking and uncomfortable dating can be; the awkward wander over to meet them that seems to feel like your embarking on a climb up Mount Everest (Do you make eye contact? Do you wave? Is that even them?)...
