Sarah should know what she's talking about. Her agency, Carpe Diem, sprang from the kernel of a 'hunch' three years ago, that older people of both sexes weren't Carpe diem dating agency catered for in the dating world. Hoping to penetrate an untapped market, she placed an advert, and when the phone started to ring off the hook, 'we knew we were on to something. It was mainly women who called at first, then the men started coming forward — at one point we didn't have enough women to go round. Her first few 'matches' fell into place quickly, lulling her — and her business partner — into a false sense of security.
But then the hard work started. There are probably millions to be made by anyone who discovers the formula for predicting the elusive 'chemistry' between two people, but until that happens Sarah seems to have hit on something that might at least boost the odds of finding it.
It's The List. The one that needs to go in the bin. And it seems it's The List that's causing us all the problems. I've had women discounting men because they aren't tall enough. Or they don't have the 'right' of children. Or they live in the wrong part Carpe diem dating agency the country. Or they are widowed and they don't want to live in the late wife's shadow. Or he's divorced, so he must have something wrong with him. I think it's because we live in a society in which we think we can order up just what we want; a sort of Identikit person.
But people have lives, and emotional baggage. I sometimes wonder whether women do this on purpose to protect themselves from ever having to find someone.
Harsh words, but the story of my friend Jen convinces me Sarah is on to something. It's something of a middle-aged love story, so if you're squeamish about romance, look away now Jen was widowed in her late 40s after a long and happy marriage and for years she despaired of ever meeting anyone again. Her mother's words probably didn't help: 'At least you're not yet 50, darling Finally, about a year ago, Jen tentatively, hesitantly and bravely dipped her toes back into the dating world.
It's not the easiest place to be in your middle years. After Sarah introduced Jen to several eligible men who wined and dined her in Mayfair's best restaurants, she added:. In the space of about six months Jen met 14 men: they all ticked the boxes on The List but none was 'quite right'. Then Sarah suggested Jen meet Richard.
What was wrong with him? He's lovely. It's just that he used to work in the City, lives on a farm in Devon, is passionate about sailing and at the weekend, shoots grouse. And pheasant. Possibly even deer, but I didn't dare to tell her that. Oh yes, and he didn't go to Carpe diem dating agency. I'm not Carpe diem dating agency they had a single thing in common actually, but I thought it was worth a try.
So lukewarm was Jen that she had to be cajoled by Sarah into meeting Richard for lunch. However, lunch went well, but Jen wasn't sure it was worth meeting Richard again. The thought of him walking across a grouse moor in plus fours simply didn't 'do it' for her. Sarah persisted. After four meetings, Jen rang Sarah to say she and Richard had fallen in love and were planning to spend their lives together. So if Jen's story is proof that The List should be dumped, what does it show about Jen's mum's view that once a woman hits 50, it's tough to find a man?
They Carpe diem dating agency a woman with a shared history. Above all, they want a best friend. As if to make a point, on the day we meet, Sarah took a call from a client, a year-old man whose partner to whom Sarah introduced him has just left him — for a younger man. She's No one will believe it, but it's true. Older women these days know how to look good and have been through enough testing times to take a relaxed view on life. And there are plenty of men who appreciate that.
I have this intuition test: when I sit in front of a man I ask myself — if there was a fire, would he get me out? The men on my books are good men. In the past two months she has matched 13 couples. Sarah clearly is a persuasive woman. But she does know what she's talking about, just ask Jen — she is planning to move to Devon, which isn't as far from Kensington as she first thought.
