Reader Question:

I am 80 but feel young for my age. I would love to meet a gentleman who likes to have fun and loves God. Can you help me?

-Shirley (Texas)

April Braswell’s Answer:

Hi Shirley,

One of the best ways for seniors over the age of 60 to find a mature mate is to post a profile on a senior dating site and actively engage the men there.

Second, make a concerted effort to get involved in social activities.

Be involved in your church and visit other area churches to meet single men of faith. You will demonstrate to mature men in your age group that you’re one of the active ladies out there.

You’re not just a couch potato homebody. You’re active and engaged in all life has to offer you.

When you are active in your community with social clubs, dance associations and service organizations, you are more likely to meet those mature single men!

Happy dating and relationships,

April Braswell
