Develop a Strategy for Midlife Bachelor Success

Note the auto-expanding Section Index on your right >>>

If you want to get out there and date successfully as a midlife bachelor, then you are going to need a well thought-out strategy – and that is what this section is all about. Earlier in the Some Fundamental Truths about Women and Midlife Dating Today section, we talked essentially about today’s midlife dating landscape … including some behavioral basics, and many general and specific observations about women from a midlife bachelor perspective, etc. The Fundamental Truths section explained what you will be dealing with … what you can expect to find out there … that is what I mean by the “landscape”. In the Midlife Bachelor Personal Makeover section, we focused more on YOU as a midlife bachelor … and how to manage many personal things that might seem obvious to some, but are very often overlooked by many of our midlife bachelor brothers. I’m talking about your personal appearance details … and also the basics of your overall attitude, what comes out of your mouth, how you present yourself, etc. Before you can begin to come up with your own midlife bachelor strategy, you must first have a good handle on everything I’ve discussed thus far in those earlier sections (Fundamental Truths and the Midlife Bachelor Personal Makeover) … as they are the backdrop or stage or platform from which you need to launch your strategy. A rocket needs a launch pad to lift off, right? An actor needs a stage in order to perform, correct? So do you as a midlife bachelor need this foundation of knowledge – as it is all part of your launch pad, your stage. Hopefully this makes sense to you.

Armed with your foundation of knowledge, you can now think about defining a well thought-out and carefully planned midlife bachelor strategy that is unique to your situation. A good midlife bachelor strategy includes many inputs (in addition to those from the other sections of this site I mentioned above) – first you need to understand who you are, and what your short-term and long-term dating objectives are. You should hopefully have an idea about the type of woman you are seeking … maybe not what she looks like per se, but at least the type of personality traits or interests she might have. You need to understand all of the various personal and technological resources you have at your disposal, and how to use them successfully. And you’ve got to be aware of your own individual strengths and weaknesses so that you can either use them or minimize them in order to maximize your chances of success. Finally, no successful strategy can be static – it has to be evolutionary … reactive and adaptive to a changing midlife bachelor landscape. This means that you have to periodically reassess each aspect of your strategy, and leverage what seems to be working the best, and modify what’s not working out well. The goal of this section is to help you figure out your own personal strategy for midlife bachelor success … and to help establish a mindset within you of continuously learning from yourself, and re-optimizing your own behavior.
