Discouraged with dating
One of the biggest issues with mature single women is the lack of older single men to date. My answer: "There is no place in the United States that I'm aware of—where older men and women mingle in relatively equal numbers to meet members of the opposite sex."

An older single woman named Becky shared her story about the importance of meeting new people.
Becky, Philadelphia, met a man on an Internet dating site and agreed to meet him at a popular Philadelphia pub.

During an intermission, the lead guitarist circulated among the audience, handing out his card, and invited people to his next gig. He knew my values before we even went out on our first date," said Becky.
Becky and the guitarist started e-mailing and did so as friends-only for months, while both dated other people. "I usually can tell within two dates if a new relationship is going anywhere and we've made it past that ‘two-date deadline.'" Betty, 73, formerly of California, moved to Idaho.
