Some of these other answers have some good points, but I would have to disagree on some points...for one, I don't have any faith at all in dating sites, singles groups, etc. because they're generally peopled by those who are actively looking for someone, and therefore may be trying too hard rather than just relaxing and acting like themselves. However, getting out and socializing is definitely a good thing, whether it be online or offline...go out with some friends, find online communities with like-minded people, etc. and you never know what might happen. I met my 50-year-old husband in online poker where we were both just killing time...neither one of us were looking, and both thought the other was an impossibility, so we were both very open and honest in our friendship, and it quickly turned into more from there.
