They explain that a change in mindset is essential for women over 60 who want to find romance.In my recent interview with dating coach, David Wygant, he suggested that men are often the ones who lack confidence and suffer from fear of rejection.This doesn’t mean that they’re not shallow (they are), but rather, that they are consistent and reasonable in terms of “rating” women’s looks.Like in a normal bell curve, 5% of the women were found to be the least attractive and 5% were found to be the most attractive, with most women falling in the middle 90%.I can think of a couple instances off the top of my head.Both men are balding, but professionals, super nice, intelligent, thoughtful, in good shape, and fun to hang around. I haven’t seen the other’s profile (he’s a friend from church) but, really?Well, many women would argue that the same comment applies to dating after 60.Not only are there statistically fewer men, but the dynamic of human engagement, and style of personal connection, has changed dramatically since we were dating in our 20’s.
