I've been working on myself to make me a better woman by reading books on dating/courtship, volunteering, opening my heart to receive people in general when I go out in public, and attending church functions. I also signed up at three Christian dating websites. I want to know what other people have tried. What failed? How were you successful? What resources did you use?

Have you actually met anyone? On the online dating sites? Do you have a fun, humorous profile written, a good photo? It's a numbers game in a way. You seem to be hitting all the right spots, that is, getting out there in person and online. What remains now is to actually MEET.

You're not dating until The Meet. Everything else leads up to that.

Wow! this community is kind of dead..just like my dating life!! Yeah its hard to find "love" after 50..that is if I believed that something that lame really existed. I am a few years past 50..divorced after 30 yrs married..his idea...and after that many years with one person you realize that your brain has atrophied. I tried the dating scene, dating those that were my age or very close. I met some of them online some through "friends" and I just can't believe the losers I was so crazy crazy crazy about!!! Now I am the real sense of the word. I have no desire to burden myself with the wants and needs and all the other baggage that comes with dating someone your own age. Lucky for me I can date younger..but its just to pass the time not for anything permanent. Younger males and I mean 18-22 are much better to socialize baggage just fun. Perfect if you want no commitments, which is only an illusion anyway..admit it!!!

Edit: If you really are in need of something permanent..throw away those books..they are trash. Just make yourself meek and agreeable, this is what guys who are older are looking for, they want a care giver. Make yourself available as such and the old guys will come running!

Meek and agreeable? Ewww. And I am an older guy, though I may not think like one.

I just turned 50 and had been scared that my love life would be over. I had a fun year experimenting on the secrets to love in mid-life. Check out my book: The Laptop Dancer Diaries. You'll find it a fun read and may discover, as I did, the secret to finding love. The Laptop Dancer Diaries: A Mostly True Story About Finding Love Again
