How to Meet Guys When You’re Over Forty

Guest Post by Tonja Weimer

woman-sitting-downAre you over 40? Would you like to meet guys to date? Single women everywhere say they would like to find someone and fall in love, but all the good ones are gone. When five or more single women get together and repeat this phrase a few times, it becomes a LAW, etched in stone.

It’s time to bust the myth that there is no one out there for you. We have more single people over the age of 40 than ever before in history. Where do you meet guys when you’re over 40?

1. Your Job

You can meet guys in the workplace. You are likely to know someone you work with better than anyone else you would meet randomly. Hopefully, you will keep your life less complicated by not dating someone in your same office. This could be uncomfortable later on if you have a fight or you break up. But if you work for a company with more than fifty employees, chances are you could find someone who works for your company but is in a different department.

2. Your Religious Affiliation

You can meet guys at your place of worship. Your spiritual beliefs may lead you to opportunities to meet men who share your values. I know someone who met her husband in the parking lot of their church. She was standing outside waiting for services to begin. She saw him drive up alone and walked over and introduced herself (before anyone else could,) and they’ve been together ever since. This woman became clear about what she wanted and then pushed herself out of her comfort zone of shyness and went for it!

3. Ask People You Know To Fix You Up

You can meet guys through people you know. Become a lovable but determined pest. Don’t be easily put off. Tell everyone you know you’d like to meet someone. One of my friends moved to a new state. She told the owner of the cleaners that she was single and would like to meet someone. Not only did she make new friends when she introduced herself, she also met a nice man at a party at their house. This is what I mean when I say, “Tell everyone.” Sooner or later, someone will fix you up. This is the way to build the volume of your choices.

4. Classes

You can meet guys by taking classes. If you love France, take a French class to learn the language so you can travel there some day. Getting involved in an exciting goal makes you more attractive. Also think about classes in mechanics, chess, accounting, plumbing, or computers. Classes of any kind lead to more friends and more date possibilities.

5. Playing

You can meet guys when you go out to play. Join a bowling league, ice-skating class or a team that plays tennis, golf, horse shoes, volleyball or basketball. If you don’t know how to play some of these games, don’t you think it’s time to give it a try? So what if you go bowling and the ball lands in the gutter – in someone else’s lane? Who cares if you sing karaoke like Daffy Duck? It’s not your American Idol talent people care about as much as your willingness to TRY.

6. The Internet

You can meet guys on the internet. Since there is a higher ratio of guys on line looking to meet women, this is a good resource as long as you use dating precautions. There are rules to live by when meeting any stranger anywhere. Before you get too serious, too soon, do the following: run a background check, meet his friends and or family members, and be very discerning, listening carefully to what he says.

Are you over 40 and wanting to date? Absolutely nothing can hold you back except you. Be brave, be wise and be ready to meet lots of nice guys.
