Why is it so difficult for the single, articulate professional to meet the perfect partner?

Select Personal Introductions –

Being single and professional has its drawbacks.  In today’s fast paced world, the odds appear to be stacked against accomplished professionals finding long lasting and loving relationships.

Alex Mellor-Brook, Head of PR and Marketing for Select Personal Introductions and newly appointed Secretary for the industry watchdog, (the Association of British Introduction Agencies) understands the dilemma only too well.  “Professional people simply want to meet their equal and despite having over 15 million singletons in the UK, finding ‘the one’ is a major challenge. The older we get, the more specific we become about what we want in a partner and with a much smaller social network and fewer single friends many find it difficult to know where to look next.”

Personal Introduction Agency versus Internet Dating!

Let’s start with Internet Dating –

Fun

If that is what you call spending your valuable ‘me’ time, sitting at a computer trawling through pages of photos and details. You might even find a profile which fits the bill but then you have to hope that the other person has written the truth about themselves. Men love to gain a couple of inches in height, women suddenly drop a dress size or three, and we all like to knock a few years off our age. Is your profile and photograph attractive enough to encourage the opposite sex to contact you? The usual answer, NO. This is where it can quickly unravel.  How do other people perceive us?

Leaving Motherhood too Late

You’ve spent your whole adult life trying not to get pregnant. Then it hits you. It may be that all your friends are having babies, or you saw a child in the supermarket that made you long for your own soft, cooing piece of heaven, but how old you are plays an important part in determining your chances of becoming a Mum.

The speed at which female fertility declines has been highlighted by the first study to track a woman’s supply of eggs from conception to the menopause. The average 30-year-old will have just 12 per cent – barely an eighth – of her eggs left, the research shows. By her 40th birthday the situation is even more bleak, with just 3 per cent of the two million or so eggs she was born with remaining. Only about 450 of the two million eggs will fully mature over a woman’s lifetime. Many others will start to mature before dying off.
