Those younger people do tend to have more romantic options (and more time to explore them), but they face other problems.I've been feeling so lonely lately and longing for a venue to meet others – but where? There must be others my age who are just as frustrated, but how do I find them?

They come to me and share their pain and concerns that they have to start dating again. It is much easier for a man in his 40s to find desirable dating partners of the female persuasion. You need only look at the numbers to figure out why.

This works quite well for the procreation of the species.
