So what’s a midlife woman who was raised in a world where men were “supposed” to make the first move do?

Here are a few ideas to help you get the hang of dating after 60.

Another place to meet interesting men is the good old standby, the coffee shop. Sometimes just asking whether the chocolate muffins are any good is enough to start a great conversation. You’re not looking for the love of your life (although it would be nice to find him).

Many men come in every day to get their cup of chai or latte. Start a casual conversation with the man standing in line and smile! At this point, you’re just looking to make a friendly connection.

There really are so many ways to meet men even after 60 – it simply takes a shift in mindset.

Do you agree that women should make the first move when meeting a man for the first time?

If you love museums, look for special events that will draw a crowd.

If you have a passion for books, go and browse the magazines and chat with the man next to you.

You will find out soon enough if they are married or committed, so, for now, just be friendly and see what happens.

Let single girlfriends know that you are actively looking for a relationship – maybe they know someone who is perfect for you!

Other paid sites, like EHarmony.com, and Chemistry.com, ask you to take a personality test before they look for “matches” for you.
