*Reach out to your friends, family and colleagues and let them know that “you are back.” Most people are busy with their own lives.
Internet dating puts all options on the table, and a growing number of sites cater to the more mature singles crowd.Tell them that you are open, interested and available to be introduced to someone if they think of anyone.Ask a close but also straightforward friend to be brutally honest and tell you what they think might be an impediment when you get back out there to date. Over the course of several months of online dating, I discovered that the pool of available older women is vast and diverse (as is true of men, although perhaps to a lesser extent) and that with a little effort, a reasonably intelligent, halfway-presentable person can usually generate some interest on dating websites. We’ve survived death and divorce, raised families, managed careers and built support networks of family and friends. But I wasn’t the same single guy I was the last time I lived here. And I wanted to meet people, so I turned to internet dating as a way to meet eligible women.
