Dave: I wonder if you misunderstood my posting. At my current age I don't "date" – I am 89 yrs old. I was just making suggestions based on experience from my years prior. Developing interests and going out to things to meet people – there may be book reading clubs, organizations that are of interest, etc. At my time in life, I have a few friends and a good pal – a gentleman who lives on my apartment floor, and we (prior to the Pandemic) went to the ballet, concerts, movies, dinners, etc. He is 76 yrs old,I am 88. We are just good pals who enjoy the same things. By the way I live in New York City, in an apartment building. I only suggested that doing things that interest you help – sometimes you meet new people of interest and at least you are doing something you enjoy. At my age, unfortunately, a lot of my social life has dwindled as friends have passed away. I have been fortunate in my neighbor and he has enhanced my life at this age.
