If your over 40 and suddenly find yourself single there is really no need to panic or be alarmed. While the dating world might seem somewhat scary and intimidating for those that have been married or in a relationship, our advice is to not overly worry about meeting a partner or making a connection with someone from the opposite sex.
In fact, since you were in a relationship times have radically changed and it’s far easier to meet someone nowadays in 2019 than ever before.
Following are some great ways you can go about meeting someone in your same age bracket.
Well, firstly there are dating apps. For those of you that don’t know what an app is well, you just might have to make a trip to the Apple store and find out. But, for the rest of us tech savvy people, who know all about apps, there are 2 you should become very familiar with if your over 40 and still single.
The first one is the hugely popular Tinder and the other is Bumble. Both of these apps have an enormous uptake worldwide and in Australia it’s no exception. You as any single person what dating apps they are on & in 90% or more of them, they will have either Tinder or Bumble on their phone. In this day and age it’s the quickest and easiest way to meet single men and women.
But, having said that it does have it’s downside. You can read about this here:
The other popular website which came to fame in the 90’s and is still going strong is other app ( which started out as a website) called RSVP. This was the pioneer of the online dating world and while not as popular as Tinder, it still has a loyal following. Again, sites and apps like this have many advantages but be warned that there are some serious downsides.
For those singles that want to go online and pay a bit more there are sites like eHarmony which go into great lengths about learning about your profile and then claim to match you accordingly with someone who matches your profile requirements. You have to be kind of skeptical about this and about their ability to match you up as they would require some fairly sophisticated algorithm to in fact do this. It’s massive in the States yet here in Australia it hasn’t penetrated the market as much due to poor matching results.
The other way in which over 40’s can meet people or eligible partners is through the services of a matchmaker or dating agency like us here at Blue Label Life.
What we offer is a boutique service where we go out and find matches for you from people in our database that have joined us. This totally eliminates the hassle and headache of you having to find and meet people online. Simply put, the online dating world can be a crazy place full of lets just say people with less than honourable intentions. Who knows why they are online and who knows what their goal is. Are they there online to meet genuine people or are they there for a hook up or a one night stand? These are the main concerns of people that use dating apps and dating websites. The whole place is fraught with fake profiles and fake people. It is chaotic and it can be over whelming and highly frustrating.
This is the beauty of a matchmaker and this is why those of you over 40 should be seriously considering engaging one. Just because your over 40 does not mean it’s too late to meet someone to start sharing your life with.
Yes, the options to make a connection are literally endless but the reality is you might need a hand in this space and you might need the back up of a matchmaker who can be by your side on this journey.
