Senior couples have a wide range of options for dates. For example, if both like to golf, make a date out of the day and include lunch or dinner.A church picnic or going to an event or performance can also be fun as well.

Many senior citizens enjoy active, part-time jobs for this very reason.

Many older folks feel uncertain about sex with a new person.

If you play a recreational sport, there may be someone at the park who you might find interesting. Joining a club may also increase your exposure to potential dating partners.

Online dating is an option for people of all ages - including seniors - and there are a lot of sites that have been established to connect interested seniors.

While these organizations charge for services and events, many individuals consider the process safe and efficient.

Other offline suggestions, Masini says, include the common areas of medical buildings, local farmers' markets or even at a local community college when auditing or taking a course on a subject of mutual interest. Keep in mind that if you are not comfortable going out alone with someone, going in a group or double dating can take a lot of pressure off of the situation.

There are many areas of concern seniors have when thinking about dating again.

These fears might range from not being sure how the dating scene has changed to worries about how the family may react and how a potential marriage might affect pensions or social security.

Although some seniors do experience a reduction in sex drive, this is a topic that you may want to discuss with the person you are dating, or planning to marry.

An honest discussion of expectations can prevent misunderstandings down the road.

Internationally Acclaimed Life Strategist Tanja Diamond says, "It's very important to set priorities first, and boundaries as a close second." Don't worry about how others date, but focus on what you feel comfortable with.
