Ever feel like there’s no one out there to date?

If so, you’re not alone. Many women experience this same feeling at some point on this journey.

But here’s a little secret: the dating world holds a lot of potential for laughter, connection, and companionship with a lot of good men.

And I’ve found 11 Types of men for you to meet that I want to share with you today.

From the ‘Bad Boy’ to the ‘Quality Man,’ each one offers something different.

So let’s dive in and explore which of these 11 types of men you might encounter who could be a good match for you.

Type #1-The Bad Boy

He’s a favorite because he’s gorgeous and charming.

He knows how to use words to make you feel amazing.

Yet his actions rarely match what he says.

He’s a major player who will more than likely break your heart.

A Bad Boy is fun to play with, but his track record for commitment might not be as strong as his allure.

Type #2-The Needy Man

While you’re in the emailing process, he’s quick to attach and he’s super generous with his affection – already thinking of you as his girlfriend – calling you honey or my girl.

He wants to talk on the phone or constantly text.

If constant attention is what you seek, he’s up for the role.

Type #3-The Motorcycle Dude

Lots of good men ride motorcycles like doctors, lawyers, and well-paid businessmen.

Don’t knock this guy out yet for loving this midlife hobby.

As long as he doesn’t expect you to ride (unless you want to), he’s got potential.

And if you share his sense of adventure, it could be a good match.

Don’t overlook him—there can be depth behind that leather jacket.

Type #4-Beware of the Ring on His Finger

This guy might not be so forthcoming about his situation.

Often he won’t post a picture.  (That’s because he doesn’t want his wife’s single friends telling her that he’s on a dating site.)

You can really get hurt because no matter how much he tells you he loves you or tells you how bad his marriage is, he more than likely isn’t leaving his wife or he would have done so already.

It’s best to steer clear altogether.

Type #5-The Long Distance Romantic

Yes, distance can make the heart grow fonder(and you can fall in love just talking with someone), but it’s the in-person connection that really counts.

That’s why you want to meet sooner rather than later because sometimes the person on the phone doesn’t match up to who you meet.

But if it does work, and the distance is manageable, a weekend romance might be fun and it could develop into something more permanent.

Type #6-What He Really Need’s Is A Shrink Not a Date

This is the guy who’s looking for a therapist and you’re it.

Unless you’re looking for a project, you’re better off finding a man who’s emotionally healthier.

Support is important in any relationship, but make sure he’s also able to be there for you.

Type #7-The Take Out Order Man

Some of the funniest profiles are written by men who believe that Online Dating is like going through the Wendy’s drive- through.

They’re looking for specific qualities in women like body type, hair color, or a precise type of job.

Keep an eye out for someone who appreciates you for who you are, not just a list of traits.

In the long run, you’ll be a lot happier!

Type #8-The Scammer

Scary group because they can scam you out of thousands of dollars by quickly capturing your heart.

These men have intriguing profile pictures that catch your eye, and its reminiscent of the thrill you felt when the cool kid in middle school chose to reach out to you.

If a man continually makes excuses for not being able to  meet you, chances are he’s a scammer.  Let him go!

Type #9-Younger Men Online Looking for Cougars

I have a client who married a man 10 years younger than she is and is in the best relationship!!!!

This guy is a great boost for your ego.

Go for it if you want.

Just beware of men who are looking for a Sugar Mama to support them!

Type #10-The Older Man

These are ‘Old School Gentlemen’ who will treat you like a lady.

He can be a lot of fun.

It’s worth giving this man a chance.

His respectful approach could be refreshing and lead to a meaningful relationship.

Type #11-The “Quality Man”

He may not be the most handsome man online but he is the nicest and he will do anything for you.

He’s the man who’s interested in what you’re doing and wants to make you happy.

“Quality Men” are online and they want nothing more than an opportunity to love you.

Have fun with this one!

He’s genuine, considerate, and committed to making you happy which makes him a potential partner for life in the truest sense.

As you navigate the world of dating, remember that good things take time.

Explore these connections, learn from them, and don’t rush the process.

Each person you meet brings you one step closer to finding the right match—someone who gets you and shares your vision for the future.

Stay patient and keep a positive outlook.

The right one is out there, and each experience is just a part of the journey that leads you to him.

Your story is still unfolding, and the best chapters may be just around the corner.

One last thought for you . . .

I’ve found the women who have had the easiest time meeting Mr. Right have had help.

They recognized they couldn’t do it all alone.(some had tried for anywhere from 3-20 years before getting help)

What made the difference is they took action to get the advice and support they needed, worked with me 1 on 1 or in my Group Program then used what they learned from our time together to meet the right man for them.

As Sheryl discovered, one strategic move can be the key to unlocking new romantic possibilities.

Lisa joining your Love after 50 Group was one of the best things I’ve ever done. I learned so much about men, myself, communicating with men and so much more. It’s made a huge difference and helped me have fun dating as a woman in my 60’s. (And yes, the profile we created together has been great for attracting new and interesting men) And I love how you share what to do and what to say to men. It’s all been a dating game changer for me. So grateful to you and your program. Seeing the women including my self finding interesting men to meet is a paradigm shift that is priceless! Thank you so much. P.S. Found my guy and we’re now living together. I am so HAPPY!

So today, I encourage you to take a proactive step towards finding your right match.

Each action is a step toward your own success story.

Believing in You!
