With the advent of the digital age, it becomes far easier to meet and vet prospective love interests in the same age group with interests ranging from gun shooting to fishing to dancing.
San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) July 09, 2013
MySanAntonio.com reports that there are many, many Americans over 45 years old looking for love, or at least companionship. Based on U.S. Census records, of the 90 million Americans over the age of 45, approximately 40 percent of them are single. With the advent of the digital age, it becomes far easier to meet and vet prospective love interests in the same age group with interests ranging from gun shooting to fishing to dancing. Finance Marlin offers three ways for seniors (or mid-lifers) to meet new people outside of the inevitable senior center and grocery store.
1. Online – There are hundreds of online dating sites, most of which have specific sites or sub-sections for age, geography, religion, and orientation. There are so many people hooked up to online dating sites and there are so many different filters one can use to find the perfect match. The editor of FinanceMarlin.com can be quoted as saying, “Whether you’re a senior looking for someone like the spokesperson for Jeopardy and life insurance Alex Trebek or someone more like Steve Harvey of family Fued, the possibilities with online dating are endless.”
2. Special Interest Groups – Like books? Carpentry? Spelunking? Contact places where activities originate. Places like a library, a home improvement store, or a nature/adventure outfitter will all have knowledge of groups and/or events in the area built around those hobbies and interests.
3. Take a Class – Learning is good for the brain and it may be good for the heart. Community colleges and adult education centers run classes frequently designed for older adults. Additionally, it provides an opportunity to meet people in a less stressful group setting as opposed to meeting directly one-on-one.
Finance Marlin suggests whether looking for love, marriage, or simple companionship, live life fully. Do things that are interesting and stimulating and just plain fun. Who knows what good deals may come of it?
