Suggestions on "getting out there" again.

Sunday, March 02, 2014

I have been married and divorced with him being deceased now. I was in a relationship that just ended and even at 60 years of age, it really really hurts and I am having a very difficult time getting over him. I need suggestions on how a 60 year old lady makes new male friends. Just someone to do things with would work as I am not ready for a tiresome relationship. If it develops farther that will come in time and I'm in no rush. Thanks for your suggestions.

    I would follow the suggestions to look to friends for help. They would know the person they suggest you meet and this is better than blindly reaching out to strangers.
    Doing things with girlfriends is another good idea. Give yourself time to think about what you really want in this relationship. emoticon

    Focus on enjoying your life. Take up a new hobby (or two) - join a few different social groups so you widen your circle of friends. I still think the best way to meet someone is through other people (they at least usually have some idea of their failings/ good points). has lots of groups - hiking, dancing, reading, - focus on you and enjoying life for a while and also mend your heart a little. You'll be in a much better place then when someone comes along. emoticon

    Good Luck. In my opinion it would be easier to find a needle in a haystack. Most of the single males are single for a reason.. they keep getting thrown back into the pool. (of course, the males are saying the same thing about the females.)

    If you truly are just looking for a friend to do things with... why limit yourself to finding a male friend.. There is an overabundance of females who finally being liberated from all those traditional female roles are looking to go to all the free and inexpensive events.. but do not want to venture forth alone..
