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.
Dating coaches take a more positive stance on dating after 60.
There are also faith-based sites like Christian and where members can write and respond to anyone.
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.
Online dating fills a gap for women who are more uncomfortable meeting new people in person.
There are lots of choices, like Match.com, where you can freely browse hundreds of profiles.
