You could hang around until next month when she has to refill her prescriptions. That's romantic.

Whether you're 15, or over 60...the best way to meet females are at social events...parties, church or any type of gathering.
If you're not involved with those types of activities it can be difficult, but not impossible....

Over 60 forum would be ok. I don't want to discuss health issues, but healthy living and fun stuff to do when retired is good.

I think it's a good idea, OP, but maybe "Over 50" or "55+" because some of us have a few years to go before reaching 60 but still have medical issues that often come with getting on in years! I had been thinking about this when I saw your post and it's a very good idea.

A "Dating over 60 or 65" forum might have some value but "over 50 or 55+" is a silly idea; there's already a "Dating over 45" forum!

"Medical issues" sounds drastic. If you're talking about your own specific "medical issues" not every one will have those issues but you can post about those in the POF health forum.

BTW, I'm a decade older than you plus some. I don't think age 60 (or my older-than-that age) equals a life of "medical issues"; however, I prefer meeting people who are interested in healthy lifestyles.

You should have complimented her on her necklace, earrings. She would say thanks, then if she was interested she would have continued to talk. I get this a lot at gas stations..LOL.

Because the wider dating "community' doesn't particularly care about the over 60 crowd. Things are still geared toward a younger demographic.

You have to check the senior citizen centers to find programs and events geared to the over 60 crowd.

Crochet anyone?

What's left?

The old standbys?:

Meeting through mutual friends?
School?
Church?
Volunteering?

If those are working so well, why do people keep turning to new alternatives?


Because those "old" standbys don't work any more.

Got anything else to suggest? Something else that would be a sure fire failure?

Seems to make sense. We already have Over 30 and Over 45, so the math is right. Over 60 starts to bring into play more common issues - loss, empty nesters, grand kids, limitations, fewer years left on this earth and hence immediacy.

Very insightful and wise post, Chromis1.
You have highlighted many of the things we "of a certain age" contemplate.
Lots of good sense in your words.

There's no Over 60 forum because a lot of people over 60 are always saying "I don't look or feel a day over 30. People always mistake me for my daughter/son."

It was just on the news within the past week that by 2030 the average US lifespan will surpass 80 years of age.

Should we get an early start now and go for the 80 and older forum?

I'm taken but I never have a problem starting a conversation anywhere with anybody.
I'm artistic so perhaps it is just my nature but I look at my surroundings.
That is what we strangers have in common in a common place. Our surroundings.

If I am outdoors it is the trees, the sky, the weather, the daffodils, the birds
If I am indoors it is the ambiance, the decor, the carpentry, the art work...
Get it?

Conversations are easy to start and to continue you simply end your statements with questions.
Don't leave comments dead in the air. Ask the other person what they think or what they observe.
I love the produce section in the market. Love to talk about vegetables and recipes.
Try it.

Lose the fear.

Bon chance or Bon appetit

Ha.. This thread was another one reborn and when I posted on it I see I posted here back over a year ago too.. he he. Who keeps digging up old threads?

I've noticed a lot of old threads are being brought back to UnLife. I don't know why. I agree with PennyAnte that conversations are easy. But I, too, am an artist, and a storyteller. I can lecture people to death, or turn my experiences in to moral tales, or instructional guides.

Today I was in the back yard, and I noticed the sunscreen on my bench swing was loose. It had been resewn into place about 3 or 4 years ago, and the threads were wearing out, unraveling...the shade was beginning to flop around. I got some zip ties, and secured the screen in place as I've done a number of times. Even plastic zip ties wear out after a few years, break, and the screen will blow around again. But using zip ties is 50x faster than sewing.

So you can reinforce the old threads, or replace them....it's all temporary.

Anyone who wants to live to see another day.
New thread starters, are promptly lined up and....................Oh, never mind. Do a "thread search".

People dig up old threads because often when they try to start a new one the Forum Gestapo votes to delete it.

And some of us are still prevented from starting new threads. Leftover punishments from long gone moderators.

I always thought it was because those in an over 60 forum keep losing interest in dating at all then a few years after that they die off leaving an empty forum filled with ghosts.

Who wants to talk to ghosts, they don't usually answer.

what is a good way to approach her? If I met her in a casino, or in a bar it would be much easier.
But I resisted approaching her for fear of embarrassing either or both of us.


If at all possible, I recommend you relax and practice talking to women without a hidden goal / agenda.


This thread was not meant to be about me

Um, yes it was.

but how to meet gals my age that relate to me

That's still about you (but that's okay).
