New York, NY (PRWEB) September 14, 2010
The latest studies show that over 40 million Americans are now actively “logging on” to look for love and, as a result, the online dating industry will generate nearly $1.1 billion this year alone. But there is a surprising new trend when it comes to online dating: men between the ages of 28-45 who are consulting dating experts and coaches in growing numbers to make sure their online profile helps to attract the right type of woman.
“Men have abandoned their laissez-faire attitude when it comes to connecting with a worthwhile woman and have adopted a more prepared mentality. Many men are now going as far as to seek out a dating expert to make sure they’re putting their best foot forward when it comes to their online profile. Men feel just as rejected as women when they reach out online and don’t get responses and it could come down to something as simple as modifying their user name,” so says Manhattan’s #1 matchmaker and dating coach, Matt Titus. “I myself have been shocked to see the growing number of men who want to learn how to date right and not waste time by attracting the wrong types of women and scaring away the right ones. It used to be women who made up most of my business but there has been a clear shift in the genders roles.”
It’s been the summer of love for the “metro-textual man”; a new breed of dater who lives in a metropolitan city and isn't afraid to use the latest technology to increase his dating life by any means necessary, according to Titus. For the first time ever in his decade plus of date coaching, 72% of the people seeking his online date coaching and advice between Memorial Day and Labor Day have been men between the ages of 29-45, versus the average ratio of 30% men to 70% women. Titus says, this recent development is a true revelation in the ongoing “battle of the sexes” when it comes to love and romance.
Though Titus is surprised by the shift, he maintains that the impact of the virtual dating world is still manifesting. “The constant evolution of social media and online dating continues to progress having many unanticipated effects on the way we date and the way men and women interact. Online dating is changing many of the so-called rules and creating a more modern dynamic between men and women.”
