Meeting a special someone later in life

Active Life With Bob Larson

Dating at an older age can be a daunting task, but there are some ways to meet that special someone.

Thousands of older Americans are looking to re-enter the dating scene. If you’re one of them, here are some places you can start the process:

Try meeting someone at events involving your kids or grandkids. Sporting events, work functions, or local parks can unveil an opportunity. 

Volunteering can also open some doors. Try preparing food at a soup kitchen, taking part in a fundraising activity, or wrapping holiday gifts for those in need.

You can also try online dating. There are sites specifically designed for the older generation. You can make a profile and get to know someone before meeting in person.
