Discuss This! Discuss This!

When the daffodils are breaking through the remaining snow on the ground, that slight fragrance of springtime flowers has everyone venturing out more and turning their sights to the possibilities of new romance!

When you’re getting out of the house more, then it is easy to increase the number of people you meet this week. And some of them may be a mature single like you!

Where are some creative places for mature midlife singles to meet a potential life mate?

1. Farmers markets.

All the new, fresh spring fruits and vegetables emerge at the local farmers market.

Another fun attribute of shopping at the local farmers market is people at the booths are already used to casually conversing with the farmers working the table.

When there is already a conversation going, it is very easy to pose an additional question and comfortably introduce yourself into their exchange.

“This is one of the times that chatting about

your grandchildren can work in your favor.”

2. Springtime plant and garden shows.

Whether you are full bore into your retirement or are merely a weekend gardener while still pursuing your employment career, everyone who plants a bulb, a plant or flower enjoys attending the local town’s plant and garden shows.

Check the schedule to see if there are any lectures or interactive workshops which will get you socially engaged with your fellow senior singles.

If you meet anyone you enjoy conversing with, just invite them to continue the conversation at the show’s concession stand over a cup of coffee. What could be more natural than that?

3. Little league games.

This is one of the times that chatting happily and engagingly about your game-playing grandchildren from the get go can actually work in your favor rather than be a topic to avoid like on a more typical first date.

Everyone in the bleachers is shouting and cheering on their team and amiably interacting with the other people in the stands.

Bring a bag of home-popped popcorn to share with those around you or a batch of cookies for easy ways to break the ice.

Try saying something like, “Would you care for some popcorn? I made too much for just me. Aren’t the kids cute running after the ball like that?”

Which tip can you see yourself pursuing in order to meet more people?
