Dating advice for the over 40 crowd
So what’s a midlife woman who was raised in a world where men were “supposed” to make the first move do?Here are a few ideas to help you get the hang of dating after 60.
Also, a lifetime of love and loss has made many women distrustful and unwilling to get back into the dating game.Meeting people at the gym has a few build in advantages.First, any single man that you do meet at the gym is more interested than the average person in staying in shape.If you love museums, look for special events that will draw a crowd.If you have a passion for books, go and browse the magazines and chat with the man next to you.Another place to meet interesting men is the good old standby, the coffee shop. Sometimes just asking whether the chocolate muffins are any good is enough to start a great conversation. You’re not looking for the love of your life (although it would be nice to find him).
Many men come in every day to get their cup of chai or latte. Start a casual conversation with the man standing in line and smile! At this point, you’re just looking to make a friendly connection.
Social media has opened wonderful doors of connection, so, don’t be afraid to look up a single high school friend and even consider attending your next reunion or class event.
Use Linked In to casually say hi to interesting men you’ve met at events.
In my recent interview with dating coach, David Wygant, he suggested that men are often the ones who lack confidence and suffer from fear of rejection.

He may say “my wife and I…” and that’s totally fine.
