 Reader Question:

I have been on dating sites for two years and I can’t get men to talk to me or flirt. I am 70 years old, but I still want someone to spend my life with.

Gina Stewart’s Answer:

Keep to more mature dating sites and contact men in your immediate age range and even older. Regardless of your age, men always enjoy attention from a younger female, so if you’re willing to date older, you should.

Make sure your pictures display you in your most attractive light, and stay positive in your profile and messages. Remember there’s a man out there who will feel lucky to have you!
