When I awoke on my 40th birthday still single I had no hope of finding love. After a few months, something shifted and I came to know in my heart I would find love if I made an effort.
So I launched my dating campaign to find the right man for me.
At Match.com, the Internet site where O'Faolain placed her ad and the largest of a dozen online services, novice daters can scroll through detailed descriptions of nearly 600,000 registered members over age 50, 53% of them men.
The high-tech approach seems to work for those who have the patience.
(The typical age difference was between 1 and 4 years.)Men over 50 are not overly focused on looks, according to the AARP survey, where "physical attractiveness" ranked fifth as a desirable quality in a date, after "personality," "common interests," "intelligence," and "moral/religious values." Sexual attraction is also less the "highly biological, intense kind of excitement" that it is for younger men and more "a conscious act of cultivation and appreciation of a partner," says Robert Butler, MD, the Pulitzer Prize-winning coauthor of and president of the International Longevity Center in New York City.
” Most single gals over 40 or 50 have no clue where to find men. Pepper talked about that too and said, “They are hoping someone will be at a dinner or be introduced by a friend, but are too insecure to go out and aggressively look for someone.”That is also very true and another reason why women settle and aim for friendship. Then, open your mind to consider the real possibility that you could find love.
Would you be more willing to meet men and date if you knew the outcome was guaranteed?
It’s easy to understand why they don’t need or want to marry again. Nataki Edwards, AARP VP of digital strategies explained it this way, “I think the need for love is a universal one, but we do see some of our members moving from a desire to get married to one of pure companionship and even friendship.”I agree completely that the need for love is universal.
Love is the third of five Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. Nataki did not point to any statistical data to back her point, so I question the validity of this statement.
