Dating advice for older gay men

I have nothing against guys my age; I have tried dating them, but I have constantly come across the following:– They're not ambitious enough, or they don't have a go-getter attitude.– They're not financially stable.– They still want to date around.– They have had baby mama or ex-wife drama.– They don't have their sh*t together.I'm not saying every guy in my age group is like this, but overall, my personal experience hasn't been fulfilling for me.

Use the classic dating strategies: introductions through friends, blind dates, meeting through activities (work, recreation, religious, etc.), and plain old serendipity.

As opposed to looking at a prospective partner only through physical ways, I have learned to look at someone from the physical, logical and emotional side. Paul Angelo is a gay matchmaker and a relationship coach working exclusively with gay professional men over 40 who are ready for a serious relationship and marriage.

I need to look at my long term plans and see if my prospective partners plans match up with my future plans. By 2017, Paul has spent over 8,000 hours coaching and guiding his clients in the areas of gay dating and relationships.

Without training, education, and support, many gay men are forced to “wing it” as they mingle and mate with other men, leaving many of them unsatisfied with their dating experiences and wondering if they’ll ever find a loving partner to settle down with. Creating a full life puts you in charge of your own happiness and puts less emphasis and dependency on finding a relationship to make you whole.
