Finding a person who happens to be doing something that you also enjoy is exactly what you need to be looking for. Having different interests is ok to a point, but after awhile it will affect your relationship because either one of you stops doing what they enjoy in order to please the other person or else you are both going in different directions doing different things with "other" people which can eventually be bad for your relationship too.

I talk to people all the time, to the point my daughter gives me hell for talking to strangers. Have I ever met ANYONE this way? Hell no.

Not so sure about the assisted living place... I work in one, on the 11-7 shift and the closest thing I have met there was the mortician from the funeral home at around 3 am. Now he was a nice looking man... So I flirted a little with him, and now just waiting for someone else to die so I can see him again !!

Ok, folks, can you beat that one?

I dated a mortician for a while but he was so busy that our relationship just died out.

So after reading all the postings I am left with trolling the park lots or aisles of Home Depot or Lowes! Jeeves... how sad.....

LOL at all the references to Walmart. I have a Walmart story that happened two weeks ago. I went to do some grocery shopping. While I was standing in the check out line, I heard a male voice behind me ask if I had found everything I came for. I replied 'yes, thank you' and turned around to find a man I had passed in several of the aisles. He wasn't bad looking but several inches shorter than me and probably a few years younger. We made small talk for a few minutes as we waited to checkout. He eventually told me his name, where he lived and what he did for a living, etc.. He asked me if I was married. I said no. Then he asked me if I would be interested in having dinner with him sometime. At first I was surprised and amused. I suddenly realized that I hadn't been passing him in all those aisles accidentally! It took a lot of guts to come up to me and ask me out. I admired that. So I said sure, 'let me give you my card with my number and you can call me later.' As I turned around to get a business card out of my purse....I heard him mumble, "That's ok, maybe we will bump into each other again some time." And then he walked away!!!

Guys, if you're going to ask a woman out ... it helps if you at least wait long enough to get her number!

On a positive note: At least I haven't been hanging around the phone wondering why he hasn't bothered to call.

In the lineup at my favourite fast food restaurant. In a bookstore; during coffee time after church; on the bus; while walking in the park on a Sunday afternoon. So many places to choose from, and not one of them involves alcohol or misusing my two left feet.

...I heard that if you want to meet someone you have to "endulge' in the things they like to do, like watching basketball and football games, car racing hanging and maybe taking up the game of golf. Ladies if your not into sports, it means "faking it".... but we have had some practice in that area haha.

Has anyone ever really met someone in a bookstore? Everytime I see someone in Borders that I would like to meet, they usually give me a dirty look when they see me glancing over at them.

Because I am retired (and so the "meeting someone at work" is out by definition), I joined an interest group and socialize there. At least you can enjoy the activities even if you don't find someone. I am lucky in that a number of us go to concerts, etc., as a group (some are single, some are married) so there usually something to do. If nothing else, the Irish really know how to party ;-)

Also, I have been told that single men in their 50's outnumber single women in their 50's. If that is true, where are they hiding out?

Places that have worked for me recently:

While riding the city bus.

While standing in the checkout line at the grocery store.

While sitting on a bench at the prettiest park in the city, eating my lunch.

Here at Plenty of Fish.... No success on the other dating sites I tried, but I've made several friends here, from all over the world.

In my neighborhood, by simply saying "Good morning" or waving to someone as I pass by.

I no longer dance - not fast anyway, and lost interest in the bar scene long ago, so I just "take the bull by the horns" and strike up conversations whenever, wherever I can.

angelicblondie.. gotta watch out for those cruise dudes... they hang around the dock just belfore the boat sales and can get free trips from the cruise lines because there are so many single women cruising alone these days... they do have to sign a promise they will not "bed" the customers but will be available to dance and escort sinlge women...!!!

Good place to meet someone.. at the Harley Dealership they have battle of the bands.
The library... lectures and interest groups.
Local ecology groups.. ours get together to kayak, or clean up the waterways together.


Lots of ways to meet... here!

A couple months ago, I started taking Imperial dance lessons. I also do other types of dances. In most cases, when you go to singles dances, there are more men than women. That's what I saw four or five years ago during my last relationship.



....More men than woman he says.... hmmmm, I always did want to wear one of those sexy little outfits and have a reason to get up close and personal on the dance floor...one two three , turn....one two three turn.

schadenfreudian,
I had a good belly laugh when you suggested the recovery room as a great place to meet people. It really isn't an off-the-wall idea at all!!

Several years ago I struck up a conversation with another patient in the surgical waiting room, and ended up meeting up with him again when we happened to have our six-month check-ups on the same day. He said I looked much better in street clothes than I did under a sheet, LOL!!!! We didn't date, but kept in touch for a few years after that.

Another time, when I landed in the emergency room with an infection in my leg, I flirted with the man in the next bed, only to find out he had inoperable stomach cancer. His daughter came in to see him and verified what he had told me. We prayed together then shared a few laughs and a few tears. This short, but powerful interaction left a lasting impression on me.

I had a young lady awkwardly introduce herself the other day, and things just went silent between us. Seems that you need an ice breaker, or short conversation first before sticking out your hand and introducing yourself. There needs to be some chemistry first, before introductions IMHO.

My parents suggested this to me recently. I do think you would find people with similar values.

All around us every time we are out and about our daily lives there is the potential to meet someone new. I find that smiling and say hi works.. ..
