When you're a single woman over 40 years of age, finding companionship with the opposite sex can be a challenge.  Gone are the days of Looking for Mr. Good Bar , finding him in church or being fixed up with the friend of a friend.

These days, more and more people are discovering true love on the internet.  I'm not knocking it because I did it and ended up getting re-married.  But I have to tell you, I had to weed through some garbage to find him.  You see, for every decent individual out there in cyberspace, there are at least a dozen weirdoes, freaks, and others who give the concept a black eye.  There are men whose motives are simply to prey on the poor old widow, divorcee, or "I'm desperate" never-been-married woman.  

Then you have many men in our age group are already married, gay or dead.  So what's a middle-aged woman to do when she wants to meet a guy?  Here are some tips on some good places to meet men:

Why not try prison? I actually heard a woman on the radio recently talking about her upcoming nuptial plans with someone sentenced to 30 years behind bars.  She fit the profile perfectly.  She was over 40, had never been married, no children and no real social life.  Before hanging up, she joked about knowing where her man was going to be at all times.      

A Funeral:  This is a great place—especially if the deceased is the "wife."

Home Depot:  Men love a woman who is good with her hands and is self-reliant.  So go to the store and look like a confident women who can fix things and take some of the responsibility off that potential mate.  

The Park:  Walk your dog, cat, bird, rabbit or whatever!  If you don't have one, borrow one from a neighbor or friend.  While you're at the park, check out your prospects—make eye contact, smile, start a conversation about dogs, cats etc.

Sporting Events:  Take a crash course in Football 101.  Then buy yourself a jersey of the home team in your area and bring out that inner cheerleader at the game.

Where would you suggest?

    • Every so often you just might meet him at the grocery store on the meat isle. I’ve heard women talking about being at Wal-Mart at 4am, that’s the magic hour, where depending on where you live you’ll find the man who has a good job at the refinery and he’s going to work...hence a man with a job!

         I am currently using online dating sites, but I also have no problem introducing myself to men wherever we happen to be. And all the places you mentioned are great. Don’t forget Autozone!
