Over 40’s Dating in Sydney & Melbourne, why use a matchmaker?

If you’re over 40 in Sydney or Melbourne and suddenly find yourself single, there’s no need to panic.

While the dating world might seem somewhat scary and intimidating for those who have been married or in a relationship, our advice is to not overly worry about meeting a partner or connecting 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 2020 than ever before.

Following are some great ways you can go about meeting someone in your 40s

Well, firstly, there are dating apps. For those of you that don’t know what an app is well, you 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 two you should become very familiar with if you are 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 Australia, it’s no exception. Nowadays, it’s the quickest and easiest way to meet single men and women.

But, having said that, it does have a downside. You can read about this here:

The other popular website which came to fame in the ’90s and is still going strong is another app ( which started 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 of some serious downsides.

For those singles that want to go online and pay a bit more, there are sites like eHarmony which go to great lengths to learn about your profile and then claim to match you accordingly with someone who matches your profile requirements. You have to be sceptical about this and their ability to match you up, as they would require a sophisticated algorithm. It’s massive in the States, yet it hasn’t penetrated the market as much here in Australia due to poor matching results.

The other way over ’40s can meet people or eligible partners is through the services of a matchmaker or dating agency like us here at Blue Label Life.

Dating in you’re 40s is so much easier when you use a matchmaker like Blue Label Life.

The Blue Label Life matchmaking difference for those over 40.

We offer a boutique matchmaking service where we find singles over 40 from our database and match them with you.

There are some great reasons why those 40-somethings should be using a matchmaker.

1. Eliminates lots of time wasters

Those over 40 in Sydney and Melbourne that use a matchmaker and are prepared to pay for this service are serious about meeting a partner. Time wasters and game players are eliminated. This means the chances of meeting someone you click with are much greater.

2. You get coaching

Those in their 40s might have just come out of a long relationship or marriage and are rusty when dating and flirting with the opposite sex. The first date might seem quite challenging, so your matchmaker will train and guide you through this process until you become more confident and able to stand on your feet. Plus, you will get feedback after every date, so those nerves wondering whether he/she likes me are gone.

3. Privacy and discretion

Most business executives, professionals and high-flyers don’t want their profile pictures plastered online. They want a level of discretion and privacy that a matchmaker can provide.

4. Meeting you’re equal

Most matchmakers come with a fairly hefty price tag, and those singles in Sydney or Melbourne who can afford this type of service would expect to meet people who match their socio-economic background. Any decent matchmaker can match like for like, so you’re assured of meeting equally where you’ll share the same interests, goals and financial stability.

5. You’re more motivated

Sometimes singles over 40 can become blasé or indifferent about their love life. A matchmaker will provide you will profiles of singles regularly, and this should be all the encouragement you need to take a proactive and more positive approach to meet someone.

In Summary

The options to make a connection are endless, but you’re in your 40s and might need the help of an exclusive Sydney matchmaker who can be by your side throughout your journey to find love. Dating apps are OK if you can be bothered, but why go through all these unnecessary dates when a matchmaker is so convenient?
