Going from the Middle-Ages to the Golden-Age of Dating for those Middle-Aged to those in their Golden Years
Older and Wiser.
Mature adults from mid-age to their Golden Years are more set on what they want, having either been through years of mariage or relationships, they have also settled down more in their ways and prefer stability and security while also wanting to keep that youthful flame alive and the excitement of meeting, flirting and dating that comes with being single and seeking love.
For those who have been through the range of apps, bars, blind-dates and the other tried and tired methods... Especially if you're over 55 and you want to meet personally attractive, educated and fun singles who match your personal desires and qualifications then dating apps are not the way, as the many advanced research studies show.
it is becoming more and more evident that having a professional matchmaker assist in cutting the fat (getting rid of those time-wasting, un-qualified, shallow "daters") while saving the time and heart-ache and annoyance of swiping, messaging and the same-old pitfalls that online apps and offline meat-markets so regularly cause. It's time to consider a solution that actually provides successful results. We have a 99% Success Rate* for good reason.
The Pew Research states that "while about three-in-ten U.S. adults (31%) say they are single – that is, not married, living with a partner or in a committed romantic relationship – that share varies widely across demographic groups. The youngest and oldest Americans are the most likely to be single – 41% of those ages 18 to 29 and 36% of those 65 and older say they are single, compared with 23% of those 30 to 49 and 28% of those 50 to 64".
These age differences bely huge differences by gender. Among men, only 27% of those ages 30 to 49 and 50 to 64 and 21% of men 65 and older are likely to be single. Women, by contrast, are by far most likely to be single later in life – roughly half of women ages 65 and older are unpartnered (49%), while those ages 30 to 49 are the least likely to be single (19%). Roughly three-in-ten women ages 18 to 29 (32%) and 50 to 64 (29%) are single.
It is easy to understand why our clientelle as professional Matchmakers is split between women and men. With a 99% Success Rate* we know well the differences in the approaches to dating which men and women have and how to work with each to make the dating experience and relationship-building the most effective based on their own personal desires as well as their expectations and their own individual situations which are as unique as fingerprints.
The powerful study "Online Dating in Middle and Later Life; Gendered Expectations and Experiences (McWIlliams & Barrett, 2017) provides insight into how age and gender affect not only ones view on dating but their respective access to potential dates.
"Middle-aged and older adults - simply by virtue of their age - are likely to have experienced long-term, intimate relationships that affect, in gendered ways, reentry into the dating market. Becoming single, through divorce or widowhood, is an emotionall challending experience (Barret, 2000; Kitson, Babri, Roach & Placidi, 1989, Williams & Umberson, 2004) that can hamper future relationship formation (Lampard & Peggs, 2007; Moorman, Booth & Fingerman, 2006; Talbott, 1998). However these relationship transitions and their emotional impacts are conditioned by gender. Both women and men face higher risk of late life divorce than did earlier cohorts, but widowhood - a transition much more likely among women (Cooney & Dunne, 2001) - is associated with higher levels of chronic stress than is divorce (Pudrovska, Scheiman & Carr, 2006)".
The study doesn't necessarily show it to be easier for older-aged men to find new relationships. It in fact found that "men's social networks present limitations, as single older men's networks are smaller than those of single older women (Ajrouch, Antonucci & Janevic, 2001).
As professional Matchmakers we have experience in not only preparing our singles for their dates, even if it is their first date in a long time or following the estrangement from their last love due to divorce or loss. We approach each individual based on their specific nature, desires, needs and wants. We work within their life-style and their schedule, their location and their goals. We work to bring out the best in them that they may have grown to miss when they look at themselves. We work to connect them with pre-qualified potential matches that aren't just a list of checked boxes or statistical analysis and data-matching but we roll our sleeves up and get to know them and work hand-in-hand on a personal level to prepare and support them throughout the process. This makes it all more stress-free, fun and exciting while allowing them to focus on the enjoyment of meeting, dating and relationship-building than on doubts, questions and unwarranted concerns.
Finding the best matchmaker for you is also important. You want to have a team that doesn't rely only on technology to match you to someone just to fill a quota. Nor do you want to put your heart and personal privacy in the hands of someone who doesn't have your true heart's goals in mind.
