BUT if you get surgery and have Botox or fillers injected in your face, you will look visibly different and be mocked and ridiculed for it.Looking your age is not OK because to look old or even ‘your age’ (whatever that means) is the worst thing that can happen to you.Tip #4: Evaluate If You Are Ready Make sure that you are 100% positive ready to date.Do not harbor doubtful feelings, because doing so can hurt your dating experience.

Many people dating in their forties feel as if they are lost and don’t know what to do or how to start.
How I should or shouldn’t look and what I might or mightn’t do to turn back time?

They’re the result of a million facial expressions and choices and experiences.
Take a look at the many faces of 40-somethings in the public eye: For you, for your sister, your girlfriend, your workmate, your boss, it might look entirely different.
