Dating for the elderly
Your friends and family are a great source for introducing you to new people.
Other offline suggestions, Masini says, include the common areas of medical buildings, local farmers' markets, or even at a local community college when auditing or taking a course on a subject of mutual interest. Keep in mind that if you are not comfortable going out alone with someone, going in a group or double dating can take a lot of pressure off of the situation.
Attending wedding, graduations, and other social gatherings that your acquaintances may have also brings you into contact with a wider number of people; some of them you may hit it off with.
Another good way to meet people is through your activities and interests.
Many widows receive a pension or other income from a deceased husband.
Re-marriage can sometimes make you ineligible for this pension, and you may want to avoid dating so you can avoid getting more deeply involved with someone.
