Midlife dating and relationships have their challenges but they are also an opportunity for incredible connection, healing and passion. This episode gives you five ways to have better love in midlife.
Dating and relationships are challenging at any age but midlife comes with particular challenges!
- Bodies droop
- Sexuality can fade
- There’s more responsibility at work
- We can be more set in our ways and resistant to change
- There are more people to take care of (Sometimes kids, parents and friends all need attention)
It’s NOT easy.
At the same time though, when we orient toward a more mature kind of dating and relationship, there is amazing potential for deeper love and even more passion.
In today’s Man Alive podcast episode I share my experience coaching men and women over the past 15 years, and my own dating and relationship experience in midlife and after divorce, to bring you:
- 5 ways to tap into the power and beauty of dating and relationships in midlife
- Why some parts of love become easier as we get older
- How to go from feeling resentful or unfulfilled to inspired and excited in relationships
- A surprising way to create more spark
- My personal stories and learnings about dating and relationships post divorce

Why does Shana coach men?!
When I started my Masters degree in Psychology I was clearly headed toward working with women. But in the midst of my program I was given an opportunity to start coaching men. As men trusted me with their vulnerability and the pressure of expectations, responsibilities, doubt and fear, as I saw parts of men I know many women may never see… I fell in love with men!
It wasn’t long before I realized how little support men get and how unaccepting people can be of both your fears AND desires, especially men who think and feel deeply or are more sensitive than the “Man Mold” teaches you to be.
I know you are innately powerful and lovable. I know your desires are good. I have love and respect for your truest, wildest and most tender places. Nothing is too raw, too bold or too vulnerable to bring to me. I am honored to be on your side and help you create a life where you are fulfilled, inspired, respected, listened to, wanted, loved and cared for.
