Laugh Off Your Relationship Struggles With These Dating After 40 Memes

We don't know who needs to hear this, but yes, dating after 40 is incredibly difficult.

We've always been told things get easier and better with age, but that doesn't ring true when it comes to dating. It is just as tough (if not, more) as dating when you're younger.
