When we were in twenties, thirties, forties and beyond, who among us would have thought dating at 70 would have been an issue? I, for one, with great melodrama, believed I’d die at an early age. “Died before she had a chance to live her life. What a tradegy.” Of course a big funeral followed with a jam-packed room of mourners. But I didn’t die early. I have lived to see myself single (more specifically a widow) at a later age.
So what are my options? I joined a few dating sites, OKCupid, and Plenty of Fish which I have found very disappointing. I don’t play sports and am not interested in following them. I gave Temple a good try, but that wasn’t for me, either. It’s been said we should partake in what interests us, but I had no compelling interests outside of writing. So now I’ve found it. I have a new book set to be released by November 1.
In order to promote the book, I seize opportunities to join organizations in which I otherwise wouldn’t have been interested. And I’m finding by opening myself up to those groups, I am becoming interested in others.. I don’t know if I will meet my soul mate or not, but it’s very uplifting to be getting out, having a purpose, and meeting people. I believe what “they” say is true about finding what you’re interested in. It just took me awhile to find it. How about you? Have you found an area of interest you can pursue? I’d love to hear from you about your adventures.
