As is said by the ageless song of the great Beatles – all you need is love. Love is a feeling around which our planet really revolves. That’s what moves the world and that’s what moves people.
The over-40, the so called age of maturity is pretty different for men and women. Woman’s age of bloom is over, her body starts to transform. However, for men it’s a different story. At that age, men are just past their prime in terms of physical capacities. And they start realizing this. The all-consuming burning desire to prove they’re still as good as new drives men of that age to do things they would not have done naturally. Unfortunately it often leads to divorces. An if a man of 40 years old finds himself alone, it becomes a problem. Most often it is women who are younger that he would like to get acquainted with. Of course there’s a category of younger women, who like mature guys. But it’s not that big. The situation is getting worse as elder guys have outdated pickup techniques writing letters is a prime example of that.
So what should a mature guy do to find himself a shiny new young wife?
Well, he will have to learn and adapt, that’s for sure. Explore new territories, try new things, abandon old ways and habits.
It should be stated that people aged 40 and older are not that psychologically flexible in terms of getting to know new people, opening up in new relations, accepting new people in their lives. So there has to be a certain level of comfort in the process of hooking up and building a relationship.
That and the fact that mature guys are very often quite busy and have almost no free time to go out, makes the Internet a perfect ground for setting up the dating for men over 40. It really is not that hard to master, most of the people already use it for a myriad of purposes in their day to day life.
So, an initial approach may be conducted through a social network, where registering an account is a piece of cake even for a not so young man. However it is definitely a long-term option as it will take a serious amount of time till the man is used to it and till he finds himself a worthy candidate among thousands of women there.
Hiring a specialized agency that is focused on marriages is also possible. The pitfall with that may be that the people in charge of it are not professionals, are seedy and unworthy of being entrusted with your personal information. It is an option but you have to be extra careful and 200% sure in the people.
Finally, the ultimate weapon – the web based dating service.
As those are aplenty, it is of grave importance to pick the appropriate one. It can be done only by carefully analyzing the features of such online service. Here’s a list of features commonly found in the worthy services:
Mobile platforms support. If the service is a big one, if it is serious about what it’s doing, then it should not represent a problem to develop the corresponding mobile application. For every such business comes a time when a mobile app becomes a must, so it really is a question of time. So if a service has an app, it could mean that this service is on a later stages of development.
Anti-scam. A legitimate business that cares of its customers will have the respective anti-scam system implemented.
No popups or similar ads. Serious businesses don’t go this way. They make money from paid subscriptions not from shady ads from some unknown and unverified source. Besides, these ads make the pages look clumsier, which leads to user experience suffering, which is a strict no-no.
That’s not all of course. But all in all should give a good indication what to pay attention to. The key in all situations would be to keep your head up.
