When you fall for someone’s personality, everything about them becomes beautiful.
You are at a time of life when you actually have more to offer in a relationship, as you have reached a point where you have gained life experience and most likely relationship experience. Strolling into your 40s and beyond, your dating and relationship requirements are likely to differ quite substantially to what they were when you were in your 20s. Most often you will be seeking a partner who shares not only your interests but also your values. In your 20s that would probably have amounted to your taste in music and very little more.
