But if you are the aforementioned woman and you find you are dating a fella over 40 who has never been married, or at least in a co-habiting, long-term marriage-equivalent relationship, is it always that case that there is a reason for his eternal singledom?This question reminds me of a rather perceptive quotation from the terrifyingly-accurate fictional doyenne of dating, Bridget Jones: Will find nice sensible boyfriend and stop forming romantic attachments to any of the following: alcoholics, workaholics, sexaholics, commitment-phobics, peeping toms, megalomaniacs, emotional fuckwits, or perverts.In youth, the game of sexual relationships is played according to the rules dictated by women. Young women of child bearing age have a clock ticking and they know that they need to find the most suitable father for their children.They withhold their sexual favors while they are wooed by men.The Daniel Cleaver Part-sexaholic, part emotional fuckwit, the Daniel Cleaver has never been married because, put simply, it would make it tricky for him to remain a womaniser. But actually, it’s all about the chase and his enthusiasm wanes significantly once you start to demonstrate some sort of romantic attachment towards him.You can sometimes identify a Daniel Cleaver by the power of social media: his Facebook profile is locked down tighter than that of an MI5 agent, yet his status updates are “liked” by reams of women and rarely any men. The commitment-phobe These are the guys who you might describe as serial-monogamists.

But he subconsciously pushes against togetherness due to the phobia of losing some control, independence, sense of self, or the horror that is a woman who might leave the scatter cushions in the wrong order. The workaholic This is the man who defines himself by his job. He may even have been engaged to the love of his life but, whether through circumstance, ill judgement, or even by having loved a woman who simply did not return his love, he can never again find a woman who can match up to “her”. Perhaps you’re locked in a passionate, post-dinner snog, when suddenly he refers to you as his “little bitch”.

Many of these men will be on the dating scene having previously been married; if anything, divorcees are the dating norm nowadays.

When a woman in her late 30s is dating, there’s a fair chance she’ll date some men in their 40s.

You’re much more attractive to women, and those hotties that ignored you 20 years ago, they’d kill for you now.

So to the men I say, hit the gym, drop a few, increase the cardio (you’ll need it!

In later years, the gender gap becomes even wider as men tend to die earlier than women..
