Dating advice for men over 40
These modern dating applications and websites can honestly be very intimidating, and also risky for our “fine wine” demographics.
It’s important that someone educates you all on the ugly truths behind online dating after 40.
The fact is that there are age cut-off points that most online daters tend to search by.
The benchmarks generally happen in 5s and there are two big cut-offs at 40 and 50.
More than 30 percent don’t even know where to begin and nearly 30 percent say they find it too stressful (think back to those sweaty palms and awkward conversations.) For more than 40 percent of respondents, other priorities are simply more important, and nearly one-quarter say it’s just too difficult to date when you’re 50-plus.
That’s true whether you’re 16 or 56, but more than 40 percent don’t believe there is anyone “out there” to date.
But according to TODAY’s “This is 50” survey results, only 18 percent of single people in their 50s said they were dating.
You can always become an even better version of the great man that you are today, but don’t make the mistake of thinking that you will find the solution in a bottle of hair dye or the latest car.Baggage can be anything from on-going divorce proceedings, having children who live with them or commitments related to an ex-wife or family.
