For any single or divorced lady who has passed that age fifty mark, you know how hard it is to meet single men within that age group. Contrary to what you hear, all the good men are not taken!

Follow these steps and you will meet a nice, single guy. Every time you leave your house, you run the possibility of meeting "Mr. Right." Which means that you have to get out of the house. And then, you have to get out of your car. Some of these tips are a bit off-the-wall, but they do work.

Get out of your car. If you go to the bank, walk inside. If you go to a fast food restaurant, go inside. Mr. Right might be standing in the bank line. It is easy to start up simple chit-chat in a bank line. Mr. Right might be sitting in a fast food restaurant because he has nowhere else to go and no one share a meal with. And there you are in the drive-thru, never even getting a glimpse of him!

Remember that every time you leave your house or car, you increase you chance of meeting someone.

Stop Using the Drive-Thru

Yes, you heard me right.

Lonely men go to neighborhood-type bars when they first get off work because they know the owner/bartender/barmaid and they feel at home. And they don't have a good woman to go home to.

I hear women say, "I don't want to meet a man in a bar," or "You won't find a good man in a bar." Guess what: single men stop in corner bars after work because they have no place else to go.
I started thinking about that statement (that good men don't go to bars). Then I realized that my own brothers go to corner bars and they are the sweetest men in the whole world.

Go to them in the early after-work hours of the day. Some shifts let out as early as 3 p.m. so you can drop by and ask for directions. Stop by at 4-5-or 6 p.m. and have a coke or ONE beer.

Remember, I said very small neighborhood bars, not yuppy Happy Hour trendy clubs and restaurants, and definitely not nightclubs.

Go to Neighborhood Mom & Pop-Type Bars

Don't do all your grocery shopping in one day or one hour. If you have several items to purchase, go to the store in multiple trips throughout the week, if possible. That one extra visit might be the visit when you bump into Mr. Right.

Figure out the time when more single men shop. I've noticed a lot of men a few hours before major TV sporting events in the store. They want to be home by the time the "big game" starts. If you go to the grocery store and there are no men, just buy one thing and go back later. By the way, this shopping advice can be reversed for a man looking for a woman.
