On here, sometimes we need to specify who we are and what we are looking for. I am 56 y.o. female nurse looking to meet men in the Massachusetts area. I am new to the area and welcome the friendship, perhaps, an introduction to the area.

My sister's mother-in-law met (re-met) a nice man at her high school class reunion.

 

I recently had my first date since my husband died three years ago.

 

I was advised to avoid online dating.  

 

I sort of looked up an old friend and told him I'd like to see him at our upcoming 40th class reunion.  We went to the reunion together and just yesterday had a concert date and had a great time.

Great for you, I found that at the reunions, the cliques still exist. I just passed last month on my (delayed) 40th reunion. I graduated with 761, you were either "in" or just a #.    Nice if you were in a smaller class & still stayed in touch, my only contact from that class passed last April.

I wasn't with the "in crowd".  I think people get over that childish stuff or at least they should!

They haven't, still appear to play the childish games they did in High School.  Reunions are for those who have made something out of themselves, & those who lie about it, I don't fall into either category. 

 

I've pretty much had it with online dating, I no longer have the energy to play those games, funny how folks think they are going to live on forever & sabotage their own happiness in the process.

Reunions are a place to reunite and have fun.

Looking back, that would be the last group I'd ever want to reunite with.  Such an arrogant & narcissistic clique in attendance.  Though still fun to look at the pictures & seeing how some are no longer holding their own. 😉

Is it possible to start a dating forum and/or post from the current date and stop revisiting dates prior to a new one???

I would be very apprehensive to start a conversation with anyone at church.

Was that regular or miniature golf that you speak of? And what did you have for dinner? I'm so very curious! Oh and did you enjoy many nice dinners with these many nice men? Hmmm?



It's nice to be important but it's more important to be nice.

Hello!  I met my husband through an online dating site August 2005.  We chatted online and then the phone every day for 6 months before meeting in person as he lived far away.  Long story short, he moved closer in April 2006,  and we dated until Dec 2007 when we married.  We are still going strong!

I think meeting people though dating sites on the web is fine but be careful and take your time.

Be careful if a dating agency. Ones with contract  for number of dates, glamour shots and advice claiming only send you on dates that match your profile...as a women!!!

 

I paid for 2 different ones. Matched potential men with my profile was a joke!  Then learned, men over 50 pay nearly nothing for service as company was desperate to fulfill all the demand from older women!!.  Instead they promised to complete 2-3 dates per week.  Complained waste of my time and got response from 1 agency. "You need to be more open minded as you never know who might be right for you."

Smile, give people your email address, communicate, talk, share and have fun. Remember it takes time to connect and first impressions are usually clouded by anxiety, past disappointments or misunderstanding.

Dating sites are a waste of time. Been there...done that. There are far more FAKE MEN than not today. WHERE ARE THE REAL TRUE AUTHENTIC MEN TODAY??? I just want ONE MAN to love for the rest of my days.

Just brouseing and this subject caught my interest. I too wonder where to meet legitimate (people) men for dating. Not a lot of men at my church, just women in my travel group, men at my pt job all married. Not sure of these dating sites for older people. Any advice or suggestions ? Thanks to everyone!
