Over 40s Date Coaching - Silver Lining Unlimited

Updated on October 20, 2013

Date coaching for the over 40s is a growing phenomenon, with more people finding themselves alone in later life it's essential that they can easily get the help they need to find themselves a new and suitable partner. Find the top reasons why date coaching can get you started back on the dating scene with confidence.

If you're over 40 and found yourself recently back on the market for a partner, then it can be quite daunting. So is date coaching the answer to getting started?

The world's moved on since the 1970s and 1980s and the way that people date, or expect to date has changed - or maybe you've just forgotten the rules! Back when you last dated, things probably seemed a lot simpler, life was slower, maybe you even met and married a local chap, maybe even somebody you went to school with. He'd wait for you after school and asked you out properly on a date.

Now, random strangers will expect to take your mobile number and probably text you a dirty joke within 10 minutes of having met you. So is that appropriate? How should you respond?

What are the new dating rules?

Date coaching gives you the confidence to know that you're doing the right things, expecting the right things. Date coaching helps you to understand what you want from a relationship - and the confidence to stride out and grab that for yourself!

If you're confident about dating, then you'll attract more potential partners, but you still have to work out who the worthy ones are! But how can you be confident if you're not really sure what the game rules are? Maybe you're confident at walking into a bar, restaurant or club, but the minute somebody of the opposite sex starts to show an interest in you you become unsure. It's easy to find the excuses and reasons why you should give them a knock back, or maybe you don't even realise you're doing it.

Date coaching can help guide you through gaining confidence in dating situations, as well as helping you to find out the top subjects to stay away from, or the 5 right things to do - all personalised to your own personality and needs.

5 Reasons for Using a Date Coach

Date coaching can give you back the confidence you need, or maybe never had, to seek out and win yourself the right man for you. With date coaching, you will quickly learn how to:

  1. Attract the Right Person: stop wasting your time with the wrong people, discover how you can attract the right person quicker.
  2. Enjoy Dating: learn how to enjoy dating again.
  3. Get Noticed: discover how you can get noticed - and get noticed by Mr Right.
  4. Find the Love of Your Life: he's out there, so how can you find and keep him?
  5. Date Confidently: turn potentially disastrous dates into a fun time out.

5 Dating Tips for Women Over 40

  1. Enjoy your dating, if you're not enjoying yourself, maybe you're attracting the wrong sort of guys.
  2. Don't lie about your age, avoid it if you must, but a lie is no basis for your future relationship.
  3. If you feel you have to lie about your age, then 'fess up by the 2nd date at least!
  4. Remember they're lucky to find you - you're a catch. Don't sell yourself short.
  5. One bad apple shouldn't spoil the barrel - if the first guy you date turns out to be no good, that doesn't mean they all are... maybe you're just attracting the wrong sort, so it might be time to find out how date coaching can help you locate the right sort.


Is Date Coaching For You?

Probably the people who benefit most from date coaching are single women over 40. If you're in this growing group of singletons, then you'll be receptive to the small changes you can make to your life and attitude to dating, that will make a huge difference in finding Mr Right quickly.

Maybe you're dating again for the first time in 10 years - or maybe it's been even longer. If you met and married your first love when you were 16, it could well be nearly 40 years since you last dated and you just need a helping hand getting into the swing of things.

It's certainy worthwhile finding out a little bit more, so you can judge for yourself if it'll be just the tonic you need for a bright new future full of fun, finding the right partner for you to enjoy life with.

Get what you deserve, not what you settle for.

      Well-written article but perhaps the coaching idea might be a bit off. For many of us, our priorities are vastly different than they were at 25 so much of this advice has been well known to all of us since we were younger. Perhaps I'm alone here, but it's not dating advice that I would find helpful. I'm aware of who I am and what I want and I really do know how to behave in company (most of the time). It's the number of opportunities to meet like-minded people that evaporates as we get older. I agree with Mehitabel. Maybe paying for a membership to eHarmony is worth it. Either that or going for a walk in the rain :-)

      The process seems to work on the assumption we all meet masses of people every day. For some of us, the problem isn't how to behave on dates, but simply that we never go on any because we work from home and all our friends are in couples.

      If anyone can make realistic suggestions where to meet eligible older men, I would be glad to hear them. But all the obvious activities and venues I've tried are also full of couples, and the very few single men over 40 are clearly only interested in 20-something women.

      I have long since stopped trying and resigned myself to a single life. It's a shame because I feel I have a lot to offer.

      Yes, there are coaches for everything these days. It's been a growth industry. As society marches on at an ever-increasing pace, it's easy for many people to not feel they have anybody they can rely on to get them on the right path quickly. That's the gap that a dating coach would fill.

      If you're sat home alone, wondering what to do, it's too easy to follow what your mates tell you to do and dress up in a dress too tight and head for some bar with them; like a fish out of water, you might look around and wonder why you're there. I guess you don't go and stand in the street to wait for a job, you sit down with a strategy of finding the right job for you - and that's what date coaches do, except for finding Mr Right. Just make you define what you want, then work towards a path to achieve it soonest.

      For many, too, it's a confidence issue. Date coaching would enable people to become more confident in their dating. I've seen some TV programmes following people being coached and it was amazing how quickly they changed everything they were doing and became almost professional date seekers!
