Do you know the best way for a 50ish woman to meet a decent partner the 2nd time around.
Tried social gatherings at church; most of them were married. Go out a lot, but maybe not the right places.
I'm sure it is difficult...
I would join a few clubs of interest and get involved in some charity work. Also, the library is a good place to go frequently, as well as letting friends you would like to meet someome. Eventually, someone you know will introduce you...which I believe is the best way to meet a person you might "click" with.
If you can find a social gathering place (PLEASE not bingo!!! they're all on breathing machines....,) one that feels safe and fun. Search them out with a friend, I would never go alone. Even if you don't drink it could be fun to dance or listen to music.
Check the paper out for local events and make it your mission to "be there." Think outside the box or norm...where would you go if you were a man....golf course? Now, there's a thought!
Lots of 50ish guys on singlesnet. Consider a public laundromat, lots of single guys doing laundry.
Believe me.. We all have the same difficulties 2nd time around. But the one thing that you Must be is Confident in yourself, before you set out to find a partner. Take the time to consider why you are a 'good catch' so to speak. Look at your personal strengths and attributes objectively and ask your friends to tell you HONESTLY why they like you. This will help you build your confidence and when you focus on those positive strengths, you will find that others notice You more than you notice others. You become interesting to others because you are interesting when you demonstrate confidence in yourself.
Each day, like yourself positively and watch where it takes you. Stop LOOKING for a partner. Let him find you as a result of your new YOU. In this way you are subtly marketing you, make less subtle changes with your hairstyle and clothes. You will not be missed by those around you, so 'sell' your new image. Build on what you are doing now.. it takes alot courage to Hub. It also gives you the opportunity to be 'noticed' doesn't it? Go gettem... When you least expect it you will find happiness. Believe in you first and Just Be.. Let your beauty out of the cage.
I know many people of all ages that have met someone through the internet site "E-Harmony" and many have gotten married. It seems to work. Good luck and have fun. Make sure to do some background checks on the person if possible before getting in too deep. I think the 'happenstance' could happen just about anywhere but it might take years and you sound like you are ready so try this.
The Best way for a woman in her fifties to meet a new gentleman and I assume this is what all ladies want to meet is to to try their church singles group first. Single and Single again is a big social group in so many churches and some cities have single and single again groups for their employees as well.
The worse place to meet a man is at a bar - that may tell you that he is an alcoholic and all he cares for is two things.
You can try match.com or eharmony.com for a price for a month and see what you get out of it.
I would stick to gatherings or socials that are church related to find quality men who share the same spiritual beliefs. Although he may not surface right away amongst the married couples, he may come along in the near future. Also there are many retreats for singles within a faith based setting. You could try different churches to see if they have a specifically singles group for over 50 which your current church may not offer.
