Dear Eloisa: I have been divorced now for just over a year. I’m in my mid-fifties and really don’t know where to start in terms of finding someone special to do things with, go on dates with, and just spend quiet time beside. I don’t mind the thought of having to date again, I just don’t want to waste time on the wrong people. I really would like to spend the rest of my life with someone, but I am interested in finding that person who shares my likes, interests and hobbies. I also don’t want to be driving halfway across the country just to go on a date, so meeting a women local to the Minneapolis area is important. Any ideas?
John – Minneapolis, MN
Dear John: Yours is a common concern. How do I meet someone who likes what I like, who shares my passion, and wants to do some of the same things that I do…How do I begin dating again after all those years of marriage…If you are sincere about meeting that life partner and finding that ideal match, then asking yourself these types of questions is a great first step. Overestimating how ready you are is a huge mistake that many singles make when they first decide to reenter the dating arena. Emotionally and mentally you should be prepared to let love in and embrace romance.
That said, there are a few ways to meet eligible singles in the Minneapolis area. Many people in their fifties and even sixties have friends that are eager to set them up, and while blind dates can certainly be fun, they don’t always lead to that love connection. Dating sites, having gained in popularity over the past decade, are also a method to which many turn. However, there are also numerous problems associated with these type of online dating services—safety being one of them and the randomness of the participants, being another. How can you truly know a person is who they say?
There are also full-service dating companies which specialize in matching people who have interests, likes and dislikes in common. Minneapolis Singles screens every single one of its applicants before granting membership privileges. This means, you can rest assured that someone’s profile is accurate. Minneapolis Singles even goes so far as to set up a professional photo shoot for each new member—their pictures are real. With both online elements and offline events, Minneapolis Singles gives people in their forties, fifties, sixties, even seventies the best chance for finding new love.
