There is nothing sadder than someone who has given up. Given up on relationships, and given up on trying to be happy. If this is you, there’s hope. Here are the top 5 ways to find love late in life.
First and foremost you need to get comfortable with yourself. The more you love and accept yourself, the more likely it becomes that others will love and accept you. This isn’t to say you shouldn’t try and improve yourself, whether that be by getting into shape or reading more, but there’s a difference between growing and beating yourself up and you should try and stick to the former.
Learn The Lessons Of History
Look hard and long to learn from your past mistakes. Many of those looking for love over 40 are divorcees. As a divorcee, it is very easy to hold your former spouse completely responsible for your marriage ending (and sometimes that’s appropriate). But it’s far more useful to actually take the time to seriously consider what went wrong. And that means looking at things not only from your perspective but from his or hers as well. You should think about what you could do better in the future and try and understand what kind of person you want to date the next time around.
Get Out And Go
You have to force yourself to get out of the house. Even if you’re not usually a particularly outgoing or extroverted person you are never going to meet someone if you spend every weekend staring at the T.V. As soon as you leave the house and go do activities that you enjoy, your odds of bumping into someone with some shared interests go through the roof. Do you love reading? Then do some of your reading in libraries and bookstores. Do you love history? Then go visit some museums! Remember, you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take!
Learn A Skill
Learning a new skill has several potential benefits. One, you can use it to meet new people. Two, it can increase your confidence. And three, learning a new skill can give you something to talk about. You’re likely to be pleasantly surprised at the number of people who share your interests.
Learn more about things that are going on around you locally. Look into nearby events, festivals, and even food stands. You’d be surprised at who might be living right down the street from you. Your future husband or wife might be living right next door! Community centers are a particularly fun and accommodating choice for older people to gather and meet one another. And most community centers offer a calendar of events that you can look into and plan for, so it’s perfect for people with busy lives and who want to plan ahead.
