Did you check out the New York Times this week? We were featured in an interesting (and currently trending online) article, Meet the New York Bachelors Who Yearn for Something More. In the article, writer Sridhar Pappu laments the plight of the bachelor approaching middle age, and the shrinking pool of dating opportunities as the years quickly pass. “Are you single?” I asked. “And you are 40? Do you ever feel like all the really good girls that you would want to marry are taken?” (They aren’t by the way. You just need to search differently.)
During my conversation with the reporter, I pointed out that the excitement of chasing a career and casual relationships in a man’s 20s and 30s often loses its steam at 40; by middle age the selection of viable partners for marriage and children has narrowed significantly. This scarcity can dig at a man’s aging insecurities and self-esteem. “Like: ‘Why not me? What does he have?’ And then you realize that he is four years younger. And that is exactly where that panic comes from.” These men could be in a relationship if they are ready. They just have to say, “Okay. I’m ready.”
