Dating advice for the single again
A big obstacle to finding love after 50 happens when you're NOT putting yourself in places where you can be seen and found by available men on a DAILY BASIS! What man doesn't love improving his golf swing and now they can do it year round at indoor and outdoor driving ranges. Men are there checking out books and movies every day. All you have to do is make sure you're in places where the two of you can meet.
