Many women over 60 say “all the good men are married.” It’s true that a lot of men over 60 are married – but you need to just deal with that and let it go.Stop comparing your prospective dates to men who aren’t available, and instead start focusing on quality single, eligible men.
Last week, the #fatshamingweek hastag was trending on Twitter as numerous assholes and shitbags took to the network and decided to mock fat people – mostly women, but men too – from behind the dubious anonymity of their Twitter accounts.
Now we could dwell on the fact that these various winners are not gym-sculpted Adonnises themselves, but instead I want to focus on the positive and work on people’s lives instead of trying to stroke the hate-boner.
Check out these interviews with dating coach Lisa Copeland on how to write an online dating profile, and what older men really want from women over 60. What advice would you give to someone who says she has given up on love?
Many older women have given up on their search for good men. However, if you want male energy in your life, you have to actively look for it and be open and committed to going half way in the search.
Often the best way to meet new friends is to start by sharing a common interest and learning from each other. The most appealing older men aren’t stuck at home – they are often travelling and doing things they love in places they love.
So go do some traveling yourself, and you can meet them on trains and planes and at airports and train stations. I also recently had an interesting encounter in Paris that taught me some worthwhile lessons about senior dating – read the story here!I also met a close male friend on a plane – and we’ve kept in touch for 10 years.Don’t be afraid to reach out to older men that you meet during your travels.For example, sign up for a book club, wine club, yoga class, outdoors adventure club, movie club, or join a church or spirituality group or political activism group. Go to conferences with common themes of interest to older people – AARP Life 50 events, for example.Or volunteer in your community for a favorite cause.Besides, the best revenge is living well and there’s nothing quite like seeing the underdog succeed despite all of his or her disadvantages. The cognitive dissonance Now, I’m going to be blunt: dating can suck when you’re fat.
