If you’re a midlife single who has been reading my articles over the past few years, you know by now I recommend attending singles seminars, workshops and conferences to meet other quality singles.

However, now in the age of Facebook, it takes a lot more searching for an event to attend than it did even only a few years ago at the turn of the millennium.

Plus, when you add age to your search list, you’ll discover the list of qualifying events becomes quite short.

Start by expanding your notion of what an event is.

How about taking a cruise with a theme or hobby you love?

Modern-day cruises are no longer exclusively focused on touring beautiful and exotic world destinations.

No longer satisfied just sitting poolside on the deck or playing shuffleboard to pass the time, modern-era tourists crave being educated and entertained while on board.

Cruises now feature hobby excursions, engaging ocean travelers on the boat and on shore.

“You can find a cruise to capture your

interests and keep your attention.”

What does that mean for mature singles?

Pick some of your interests to explore further on the open sea and you’ll naturally be meeting other people who already share your hobbies.

Whether it’s a cruise customized for salsa aficionados or classic film lovers, you can find something to suit your tastes and meet fellow fans.

Turner Classic Movies’ cruise casts off in early December. This year, the very theme and celebrities featured, Jane Powell and Robert Wagner, will attract the mature audience for you.

You don’t have to go to all the trouble of working up a guest list, finding a party venue and arranging catering. All you have to do is book passage, show up and engage with your fellow cruise travelers.

There are also faith-based cruises.

Whatever your faith base or denomination, you’re bound to find a cruise targeting you and your peers, whether it’s exclusive to your faith base or featuring a noted speaker to your faith.

When you go on a cruise based on your interests, you’ll easily gain new friends and senior couples still often meet their mates through mutual friends.

Grow your base of friends and you increase your chances to find your senior life partner!

Whatever topics captivate your interest, you can find a cruise to keep your attention engaged while sailing the seven seas.
