There are lots of opportunities to meet men when you’re over 50 – you just need to know where, and how.
You will need
- Golf clubs
- Sexy outfits
- Internet access
Step 1 Hang out at the hardware store Start hanging out at the local hardware or home improvement store. Many men, especially retirees, do their own home repair.
Go to the hardware store alone. A single woman in a hardware store stands out.
Step 2 Take up golfing Start going to the driving range, especially on an early Saturday morning. Most golfers at that hour are retired men over 50.
Step 3 Let others know you are looking Get the word out that you’re looking — everyone likes to be a matchmaker.
Step 4 Strike up conversations with others Practice striking up conversations in the grocery store, post office, bagel shop, or gym.
Keep conversations positive — men get turned off when women talk about their ex-husbands or boyfriends, especially if it is negative.
Step 5 Buy new clothes Jazz up your wardrobe with new, sexy clothes that flatter your figure. Don’t buy what your granddaughters or daughters tell you — wear what makes you comfortable.
Step 6 Try online dating Try online dating — there aren’t many online daters over 50, but this medium continues to grow. Plus, it’s a good chance to brush up on those computer skills.
