Dating? At our age? Why not! No matter what your age, human connection is essential in keeping a healthy spirit. They don’t call me Meddling Maude for nothing. So, if you’ve been out of the dating scene for a while, I’m here with some tips for getting back in. Let your friends help: Your family and friends know you best and may be able to help you find someone you can trust and who will appreciate your many great qualities. If your niece happens to know of a nice person or two she thinks you’d click with, take a risk! Agree to meet them! (One at a time, of course!) You don’t have to meet someone on a potentially awkward blind date. Instead, have your helpful family and friends invite both of you to a barbecue or to join them on an outing. Get active: What interests you? To meet someone you might enjoy, seek out activities you like to do!
