Mature dating prospects are no longer so easily and casually moving in and out of your daily activities the way they used to during your college years.

However, that doesn’t mean you can’t meet a number of potential dates each week. When you’re 50 and over, you’ll want to make use of the social events during every season.

If you’re already in a relationship, keeping things interesting is essential to the health of your relationship. These events make for great dates!

What are some of the special occasions you can use to your social and romantic advantage?

1. Oktoberfest.

October features so many different Oktoberfest festivities. Not all the Oktoberfest activities focus exclusively on beer drinking, although many of them do.

Alongside the seasonal brew, you’ll find German bratwurst and Germanic folk-inspired events. From small dog races to folk dances, there’s much to be enjoyed and activities to get involved in that are sure to get you interacting with strangers.

The fun thing about each of these events is they’re already drawing a mature crowd and the long tables set you up to easily break the ice with anyone seated at the same table as you.

When you attend these events, you’ll naturally have the opportunity to interact with others.

“Halloween provides a fun occasion

to socialize informally with others.”

2. Homecoming.

Whether it’s your own alma mater or that of the local high school or college where you now reside, October often features annual homecoming celebrations.

There might be a big sports game featured as well as parades and events feting the town’s or school’s founders and history. Find out what is offered where you live and attend some events.

Get out there early and take advantage of people already being out and about participating in activities. The homecoming theme already gives you an easy conversation topic to chat comfortably about.

If you are new to the area, you can now casually draw others out in conversation to educate you about your new home’s history. Who doesn’t adore someone who listens to them and treats them as an expert?

3. Halloween.

Whether it’s a service club’s haunted house or the town’s costume ball, Halloween provides a fun occasion to dress up, have fun and socialize informally with others.

Many of the dance associations host Halloween-themed dances. Over the course of the month, you’ll likely have the opportunity to don your costume repeatedly by attending dances sponsored by each dance club.

Be sure to attend the dances that are a few towns over from where you reside in order to further stretch your social circle.

Sometimes just a few more miles can make all the difference in your meeting your next life partner.
