      You still have to be careful about dating.  It does not matter if you met this guy on the elevator at the office on or the Internet...here are a few safety reminders;

      1.  NEVER give out any personal identification numbers such as you Social Security, date of birth, address, where you work.
      2. If the guy starts to ask a lot of personal questions about your personal identification is probable up to no good, tell him to have a nice life and leave.
      3 Arrange your own transportation. NEVER get into his car until you know him very well.
      4. Tell a family member or close friend of the date..when, where and with who. Ask them to call your cell about one hour into the date. This serves 2 purposes; safety and if he has the personality of a wart hog, you can claim an emergency and leave.
      5. It is a really good idea to have a pre-date background check done. Remember with one click of your mouse you could meet the love of your life or a career criminal. I will be happy to assist any of you ladies with this one.
      6. ALWAYS remain in control of your drink. You order it, have the waiter hand it to you and you get your refills. This reduces the chances of date rape..yes even at our age.
      7. Don’t wear expensive or expensive looking jewelry or clothes. Many think that women on our age bracket are “rich“. Well, even if you are, it is not a good idea to advertise it.
      8.  Be careful, use your good common sense, and have fun!

      Wishing all a great weekend,
      Sandy Glover

        • I was once alone in Texas for a business trip.  I met this older gentleman Arnie at the bar.  We started to talk.  He told me he was here for business from NJ.  He was married.  I was married.  Of course, I did not think for an affair or as such.  Just a mighty conversation, that’s all.  

          Then he asked me out to dinner for he had been to TX many times.  I secretly checked with the bartender.  He told me he was regular - stayed in that hotel every 4 months or so.  I asked for details, which restaurant we were going to, how would we get there (by his rental car or cab) all the details.  Then I left the bartender and hotel manager my route.  

          Turned out he was a good guy and we remains friends as of this date.

          Yes, we have to be extremely careful.

        • These are some of the same “nuggets” of advice I give to my daughter and other young ladies who look up to me.  Of course I follow them myself.
