    Been there did that. I was older than you when I was going threw this. I was in my mid sixties at the time.

    Advice:

    1) Don't bother with the young pretty girls half you age. You are genetically programmed to seek a fertile woman. Unless you are really interested having more rug rats, ignore the young kids. OVERCOME THAT STUPID URGE.

    2) I have heard a lot of single men jokingly tell that they are looking for rich woman. If that is what you want, they are dime a dozen. Lawyers and Doctors tend to work them self to death leaving beautiful, wealthy widows.

    3) Take dance lessons and become a confident skilled dancer. When you walk into a singles dance walk past the pretty young women. It's okay to smile at them but do NOT walk over their table. Find a plan looking older woman. Ask if you can join her. Be nice to her and show her a good time on the dance floor. Women mistakenly think that if a man is a skilled dancer, he will be good in bed. (There is no correlation.) The other women in the room are watching you. When they see you showing a plan woman a good time. They will decide that you are a nice guy and come over to your table, ask you to dance and give you their phone numbers.

    3a) That plan woman you sat down with might turn out to be the best woman in the place and you might enjoy her very much.

    4) Attend your high school reunion. You will be shocked how the girls you once lusted over have faded, and how others you ignored have blossomed.

    The above worked for me. Your mileage may vary.

    I can believe that. Her rates probably went up after the commercials took off.

    My cousin, a liberal public school teacher, married a guy that is conservative and they have 2 kids. Dunno how he does it. They met on Match.com You can find someone on dating sites. I met my wife of 14 years at church and kinda thru a mutual friend.
    I would never marry again. I would just find someone and shack up but that's just me.

    I would never date on-line, but a couple of the girls I work with have tried it. They both said they would not do it again.

    You meet people when you aren't looking. Get involved with your church, you can meet a lot of nice girls that way.

    I feel for you entering the dating pool. I'd hate to be there. And during election time, I'm sure it's fraught with peril if you try conversation.

    All men may not be trash, but if you read any GT thread about dating, marriage, or predator school teachers, it might be difficult to come to any other conclusion.

    I’ve seen the modern dating world and what’s swimming in those waters.

    American women are insane and I’m not sure what they’re putting in the water over here. I think I’d rather take a face full of OC spray or another steel cable to the head than venture into the troubled waters of online dating at this point in time

    Have you watched any of the Before the 90 days dating on TV?
    It is hysterical.
    American men and women who can't find a date in the U.S. (gee I wonder why) contact people overseas, go to meet them and then sometimes get married or most of the time return poorer and without love.
    Its like watching a train wreck. You cannot look away.

    Everyone thinks they have the best cat or the best dog. None of them are wrong.
