Are you one of the many people who contact me on a regular basis – asking about dating advice and wondering where you might be going wrong?

In response to your calls, emails and messages I am so happy to announce our upcoming course. This course has been thoughtfully designed to address the unique challenges and concerns that mature singles like you often encounter.

Are you ready to embark on an extraordinary journey of rediscovering love and companionship? After spending two, three or even four decades in a relationship, re-entering the dating scene can be a mix of excitement and apprehension. Or maybe you have just dated wrongly for many years?

Our course will guide you through the often perplexing world of dating in 2023. We will help you identify the common pitfalls and navigate the landscape effectively. Remember, dating isn't just about finding a partner; it's also a voyage of self-discovery and growth.

We will delve into the psychology of dating, helping you shift your mindset, overcome barriers, and embrace the adventure ahead. Your midlife and beyond can be the most rewarding chapter in your romantic life!

The first (of many) modules on our ‘How to Date Better mid-life & later-in-life course revolves around presenting yourself genuinely for online dating. We will assist you in creating authentic and honest profiles while addressing common stumbling blocks. Say goodbye to second-guessing; we're here to set you up for success!

Here is a brief overview of what we'll cover:

The Photo Dilemma: We'll provide guidance on selecting appropriate photos, recognising the differences in how women and men should present themselves. We'll also shed light on what not to include - for instance, having a picture with your ex-spouse, beaming together, is a definite left-swipe material.

The Bio Dilemma: We'll emphasise the importance of an honest and realistic dating bio. A well-crafted bio builds trust, attracts compatible matches, and lays the foundation for healthy, meaningful relationships. It's not just about benefiting you; it's also about respecting potential partners, leading to more satisfying and lasting connections.

Age & Appearance: We'll address the common issue of misrepresenting age and appearance in profiles. it's crucial to be upfront and honest, as misleading representations can lead to disappointing first dates.

Interests: Be authentic about your interests; there's no need to exaggerate. Whether you enjoy being active or prefer relaxing on the sofa, there's someone out there who aligns with your interests.

Intentions: Clearly communicate your dating intentions in your profile, whether you're looking for friendship, a serious relationship, or companionship. Honesty here sets the stage for transparent interactions.

Health & Lifestyle: Concealing health issues, dietary restrictions, or lifestyle choices can lead to trust issues and relationship problems later on. It's best to be upfront about these aspects in your dating bio.

Search Criteria: We'll delve into the criteria you set for potential matches and how it can impact your dating success. Having overly specific criteria may limit your chances of finding a compatible partner.

Don't let these common dating pitfalls hinder your quest for love and companionship. Join our course, 'How to Date Better Mid-Life & Later in Life,' and together, we'll embark on a journey toward a more enjoyable and successful dating experience.

It's never too late to find that special someone who will stand by your side, ensuring you never feel lonely or fearful of facing life alone.

Hello, as many of you know, I'm Jacqui Baker, and I'm thrilled to share my story with you this evening. At 59 years young, I find myself happier and more fulfilled than ever before. But let me be honest; my journey to this point wasn't always smooth sailing. In fact, it was filled with its fair share of ups and downs, heartaches, and moments of self-discovery.

Growing older can be a beautiful experience, marked by wisdom, confidence, and the freedom to embrace life on our own terms. However, it can also come with its challenges, especially when it comes to dating and companionship. It's no secret that the world of dating can feel daunting, especially for mature singles who may have been out of the game for a while.

As a single woman in my late 50s, I've experienced the highs and lows of dating firsthand. I've encountered those moments of self-doubt, the fear of loneliness, and the uncertainty of whether I'd ever find meaningful companionship again. But I refused to let those challenges define my journey or dampen my spirit.

Instead, I embarked on a path of self-discovery and growth. I sought out knowledge, connected with others who shared similar experiences, and gradually transformed my approach to dating. I realised that successful dating at any age requires a shift in mindset, a commitment to authenticity, and a supportive community of like-minded individuals.

Today, I can proudly say that I've not only found happiness in my own life but also a deep sense of purpose. I now want to help others navigate the world of dating in later life. That's why I've created a series of dating courses and resources designed specifically for mature singles who are ready to embark on their own journey of rediscovering love and companionship.

My mission is simple: to empower you with the knowledge, confidence, and skills to date successfully and authentically. Together, we'll address the common pain points that mature singles face, from loneliness and self-doubt to the complexities of modern dating. I'm here to provide guidance, share insights, and build a supportive community where you can connect with others who understand your journey.

I want you to know that it's never too late to find love, build meaningful connections, and make the most of this beautiful chapter in your life. Whether you're a mature single looking for a second chance at love or simply seeking companionship and connection, you are not alone on this journey. Together, we can rewrite your love story and embrace the joy of dating at any age.

Join me on this incredible adventure, where we'll challenge the way we've approached dating and relationships, reshaping our mindset to rediscover love. It's not just a possibility; it's a promise. Stay tuned for updates, enrollment information, and heartwarming success stories.

Let's make this journey one filled with hope, a commitment to connecting with others, and the resolve to find the companionship we dearly crave.

To ensure the success of this very dear venture, I will be sure to equip you all with the best tools to achieve this goal - all while ensuring that this last chapter in our lives is brimming with warmth and contentment, dispelling any feelings of loneliness, anxiety, or the fear of being alone."

I wanted to share this lovely message with everyone who follows me.

As most of you know, the reason you follow me or are part of my community is that you're navigating the unique challenges of finding companionship mid-life/later-in-life.

My goal has always been (and will always be) to provide practical advice to help you make the most of this new chapter, which can be really daunting for us... to say the least!

Today, I received a message from Samuel, who was single for many years and struggled to get past the first date.

"Hi Jacqui, Thanks for your support and advice over the past year or so. Because of your hard-hitting and realistic advice, I'm now in a relationship with a lovely lady I met on I had dated so badly for quite some time and had literally given up meeting anyone, but I needed to look outside the box!... thank you, and maybe it's time to remove me from your membership list. Cheers, Samuel."

Samuel's story is a testament to why so many singles in mid-life and later in life are alone when they could be content together at this stage in life, sharing experiences and not feeling so lonely.

At this stage in life, we have dealt with life's traumas, family, work, everything, but now it's time to do the most amazing things or the simplest of things with someone we can love and be at one with. Life is short; let's not allow obstacles to hinder us!

Are you ready to embark on your journey towards meaningful companionship? Take action now by connecting with me.
