Today, my passion as an over 50’s Dating Expert is to share the secrets I know about dating after 50 with you so you too can find and have a loving relationship with a quality man in your life!
After trying everything from speed dating to a matchmaker, working one-on-one with Lisa was the best money I spent to find love after 50.
Men literally fell over themselves to date me because I’d figured out the secrets to who they were and what made them tick!
Online dating makes your dating experience easier than it used to be. I could always get a date, so I thought I knew what I was doing, but I’ve found her Quality Man Template is a must for navigating the dating world.She helped me improve my profile so I have more suitable men responding, and now I can return to the template and insure that I am dating the kind of man I truly want. Wendy, California Maria met a wonderful man with a heart of gold Six months ago I couldn’t envision my soulmate & the truly peaceful, happy life I’ve found in myself today.According to the Census Bureau, “single” is everyone who isn’t currently married, and it completely ignores sexuality, so this is far from an exact science! My original map (and others like it) were collected at the area of a Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), a grouping used by the Census Bureau to put cities and their immediate, tight-knit suburbs together. The one on the left is Hell’s Kitchen – commenter Steve wrote in to say “in the past few years it has become a hub of the gay community which is why it’s all young single guys.Since these areas are basically married, it makes sense to treat them as a single statistical area, right? It’s what Chelsea once was.” As for the one on the bottom, I spend a lot of time down under side of the Manhattan bridge, and while it looks like the Lower East Side I can tell you this: all of those single men are living in Chinatown.I’ll have some good news (and another map or two) for you tomorrow – hop on our newsletter to be sure you don’t miss it!If you just can’t wait, here’s a sneak preview: our arch-nemesis Silicon Valley is looking blue as the sky.This is true across America, almost without exception (single women outnumber men in a half-dozen cities). Brownstone Brooklyn, the closest my borough has to a Manhattan, is ⑤, sporting about 20% more women than men.Extra single men was a clear trend everywhere, so there was no reason to look closer, right? As far as I can tell, New York City as a whole only has more single men than single women because of immigrant communities.Fast forward to seven years later: earlier this month I was asked to give a pre-Valentines Day talk about my depressing singles map at Geo NYC, a super cool group of mapping folks. Apologies, single ladies of Manhattan, but East is East and West is West and never the twain shall meet.Since they were all New Yorkers, I thought, why not break the singles down by ZIP code and give them a little something more to chew on? , the strongest outpost for single women in almost the entire map: Brownsville.
