Single and Elderly? 5 Tips for Meeting New People

It can be difficult to meet new people when you reach a certain age. However, “difficult” doesn’t mean “impossible.” You just have to be willing to step outside of your comfort zone. Check out these ways to mingle with others your age so you can find meaningful companionship.

Seek Out Other Senior Citizens

This is the easiest way to make a connection with someone like you. Instead of mingling with all ages and just hoping that the group includes older people, you can deliberately find them through events and activities aimed at seniors. For example, you might join a senior game night at the local community center, or you might sign up for a 65+ swim class at the gym.

Change Your Living Situation

Retirement communities aren’t the grim places that some people expect them to be. There have been remarkable strides in aged care over the past decade, and senior-filled villages can be beautiful, bountiful places that offer everything from rose gardens to rec centers. They’re also great for meeting other retirees, so if you’re single and ready to mingle, consider moving somewhere with lots of neighbors.

Get Fit

There are many benefits to exercising as a senior citizen. Not only can it increase strength, endurance, mobility and cognitive function, but it can also boost your self-confidence and make you feel more attractive as you seek out other singles. You don’t even have to become a marathon runner. Just take more walks or lift hand weights to start seeing results.


Volunteering is good for the soul. It’s not bad when it comes to making friends, either. Whether you’re sorting through canned goods at a soup kitchen or wrapping holiday gifts for homeless children, you can make a real difference in the world while also meeting and interacting with other people who share your values.

Find a New Hobby

Maybe you’ve always wanted to learn how to tango. Maybe your granddaughter is really into photography, and you’d love a common interest that could reconnect the two of you. Looking for hobby clubs is a great way to stay active and build new skills, and as a bonus, it’ll put you in touch with like-minded individuals who could turn into romantic partners. You never know what could be around the corner when you open yourself up to new experiences.

These are just a few ways that you might find companionship as a senior citizen. Whether you’re looking for love or just a friendly soul to pass the time with, the most important thing is that you put yourself out there. Nothing will happen if you stay cooped up at home.

This is a good article and I do not intend to argue with that. Communication is important at any age, but it is especially important after 50. People often become isolated in themselves and this leads to problems. I decided everything for myself now. I will contract for independent living near me. I have such an opportunity and I am sure that my children will support me when the time comes.

More and more families who have relatives with long-term diseases resort to professional services like the elderly assisted living in Albuquerque. They understand that their relatives can not take care of themselves like they used to do and a caregiver is the best option for them. The caregiver can look after them, will help them around the house and they will make sure that they go to the doctor's appointments and take their medicine.
