But it’s so important you break through these worries and get back in the game.

  • Asking a girl I really like that I met through a priest was a baby step for me, but she rejected it saying that she didn’t feel it would be appropriate right now.

    1. Sorry for the incomplete sentence but what I meant to say was that asking her for a hug was the babystep.

  • It’s so easy to think that there is something wrong with you because you haven’t ‘found your lobster’ by the time you are my age (fans of the TV show Friends will know what i am on about). How do you silence the voices in your head telling you that if you haven’t met ‘him’ by now, then he might just not exist. And how to do you fully engage with the dating scene when you sometimes feel you are viewed as a desperate middle aged woman?

  • Loved this one! I am a fairly young widow and I have been watching your videos. It’s been about a year and a half since he passed. I am starting to think that maybe I won’t stay single the rest of my life. You are right everything is so different! We were married for almost 22 years and you have really helped me to think about what I do want in a man and that’s it’s okay if i want to go slow. To have the confidence to ask for what I need from others and you know what the response has been good! It continues to make me more confident. So thank you for the educational piece and for the great attitude you have about life. Best wishes.

    1. Thank you, Wednesday, for saying the “w word” … widow. I am also a middleaged woman who lost her husband of over 20 years. I’ve been watching Matthew’s videos just to encourage me to get out of my shell, talk to more people, try something new. I’m far from dating again, but I have started to smile at people when I get coffee. :-)

      The strangest thing about “starting over” for me is that when I met my husband I was in my 20s. A lot of the ideas I have about what I want in a man or how I like to spend time with someone are based on a much younger version of myself — maybe a more insecure version, a less certain version. I’m hoping that when I get back into dating, I will be able to use my wisdom as an older woman and Matthew’s inspiration to make the kind of life I truly want.

  • It’s really late but it’s the first time I had to really watch this and Matt it is beautiful!! I am crying I’m so touched!

  • I love this, Matthew you are such a sweetheart you made that ladies night, and it’s so great that she is still wanting to grow and improve herself.
    Please come and do a retreat in New Zealand!!

  • I am glad you seem to address those outside the previously focused on 24-34 now :)) and I am glad that other than you one old video about age you have some other (more positive) reference made about age.

    Here’s hoping we will one day live in a world that is not so focused on useless numbers like “age”!

    Honestly!! Why is it that we can’t come up with a card that says we are over 21 and that’s it :) that’s the only thing we need to know about each other’s age and the only ID card we need :)

  • I really like your communication style, wisdoms and witty sense of humour and also how up to date and night energy your approach is overall keep up the great work by the way ;) xo

  • —> Sorry just noticed! Apologize for the typos and grammatical errors and pls feel feee to correct them ;)

  • Matthew, thank you for being willing to impart into us. That was the most beautiful and helpful video for me. “Youthful, baby steps, go outside, enjoy life…” I really don’t have to be afraid. I can be the best me and enjoy my journey.

  • Dear Mathew you ate the sweetest guy and the success you have is deserbed for all the people you help and care for though dont forget about yourself too, which I also do when you are so wrapped up in everything.
    I wish that lovely lady the best for her future.

  • What an amazing woman! Just like my Grandma- she was 95 when I saw her again after 31 years. She was far from frail, she got up at 5:30am every morning (even though the ladies in the nursing home laughed at her), she was the matriarch of the family on Dad’s side, and would boss all her children around and demand that they take her out here, there and everywhere. Her first words to me were “So I bet you thought I was some frail little thing, didn’t you?” She had so much energy and enthusiasm for life, and was so very stubborn! What amazed me most was that at 95, she had a boyfriend of 30 years, who was 20 years younger than her and adored her!!! When I asked Dad why Alfred wasn’t in the same nursing home as Grandma, he said “He wouldn’t survive a week. His heart would give out. She is so demanding on him physically and intimately!”. Grandma died a couple of months before she turned 100, and she only slowed down 6 months before she died! I’m so grateful to have met up with her again and gotten to know her. I now know where my energy, enthusiasm, youthful looks- and stubbornness comes from, and I hope to continue to look and feel younger like she did- such a wonderful genetic inheritance! I’m 47 and get looks of interest from 18-35 year olds, as well as men my own age and older. One man I danced with who was in his 70’s said to me that “if he had been 35 years younger, he would be chasing me”. Thanks so much for your videos, advice and programs- I’ve just signed up for one of them. I’ve always been very shy, but now I’ve taken up ballroom dancing again and I’m learning so much from you, Matthew, that I feel confident and I’m not shy anymore. I know that the next half of my life will be AWESOME!! I’ve already started planning out the next 3 months of it, just as you have suggested!!
