Hang out with who you want to hang out with, do what you want to do, and don't feel obligated to do anything or see anyone you’re just not that into. And rather than mope about the ending of one chapter of my life or try to squeeze in as many dates as possible, I reveled in the new life I was creating for myself.
I just needed a little encouragement to get started.
In my recent interview with dating coach, David Wygant, he suggested that men are often the ones who lack confidence and suffer from fear of rejection.
He says that older women have the power to make a connection that turns into a dating opportunity.
Online dating fills a gap for women who are more uncomfortable meeting new people in person.
There are lots of choices, like Match.com, where you can freely browse hundreds of profiles.
When you sit down, don’t immediately pull out your mobile phone or book. When you are out with a dog or young child, there is a natural and comfortable energy about you.
This weekend, grab your dog and visit your local park.
You will find out soon enough if they are married or committed, so, for now, just be friendly and see what happens.
Let single girlfriends know that you are actively looking for a relationship – maybe they know someone who is perfect for you!
Another place to meet interesting men is the good old standby, the coffee shop. Sometimes just asking whether the chocolate muffins are any good is enough to start a great conversation. You’re not looking for the love of your life (although it would be nice to find him).
Many men come in every day to get their cup of chai or latte. Start a casual conversation with the man standing in line and smile! At this point, you’re just looking to make a friendly connection.
Not only are there statistically fewer men, but the dynamic of human engagement, and style of personal connection, has changed dramatically since we were dating in our 20’s.
