The number one question I most often receive from midlife singles is where to meet other singles. Often the mindset of seniors is they need to meet large groups of singles during their college years and in their 30s.
Well, mother was right. It only takes one good one.
The best way to meet someone to share your life with and possibly marry is to vary the activities you do. Here are my top five rules for senior singles to meet other senior singles.
1. Get online
The modern senior singles club is open 24/7/365 and accepting new members all the time via dating sites.
Keep in mind that the goal of online dating is to get to the first date and actually meet people. Refrain from messaging forever without actually arranging to meet.
The goal is to meet new people. Keep your actions consistent with your goal.
2. Get outdoors
Seek out and join outdoor activities groups. From mountaineering and bicycle trips, to evening hikes in the nearby park, active seniors are outdoors.
If you’re doing likewise with a social club, you’ll meet them and have opportunities to converse with them. That can make all the difference between being active solo and dating another active senior.
3. Get out and dance
Whether it’s line, salsa, square, swing, ballroom or folk dancing, it’s easy to socialize when you get out on the dance floor.
Countless midlife singles have met, dated and married having met on the dance floor. Find a style that appeals to you, and give dancing a whirl!
4. Get out and learn something
Take an adult education course. People of all ages continue to build their professional and personal abilities.
Invite someone you like in the class to grab a cup of coffee or sit together at lunch.
5. Get out and work
The longer you stay on the job in any capacity whatsoever, the better. Working keeps people interacting with a variety of people, thus increasing your chances for love and social options.
Attend training days. Remain active in employee associations. Let your colleagues know you’re interested in meeting someone. You never know who they know.
Each of these rules would be tremendously enjoyable to do exclusively as an activity, but the singles who meet, date, court and marry are those who select two or three and mix them up in their schedules. Then those activities give you fun and adventurous things to enliven your senior coupledom!
