The best places to meet single men over 50

If you are seeking to meet men over 50, first ask yourself what kind of gentleman you want to meet. You do not want to meet a world traveller if you like to stay at home, nor would you like to meet a sports fan if you have no interest in sports. What interests would you like this 50-year-old man to have?

The key to finding him is found in your answer to that question.

Outdoors Type

If you would like to meet a man over 50 who loves the outdoors then you might try joining a hiking club. Many single men in this age bracket can be found climbing the foothills of mountains or trekking through a forest. To find a hiking club near you try calling your local YMCA.

If you enjoy the ocean and boating, you can frequent the public yacht clubs in your area. Happy hour is a great place to meet men over 50 who like to sail the waterways. Ask friends to join you for a cocktail at the bar and enjoy the sights and sounds of the water. You might just have that special someone sail into your life.

If cocktail hour is not something you care to partake in, then try sailing lessons. Many marinas offer lessons and it can be an enjoyable skill for you to learn.

One of the best places to meet a man over 50 is your local golf course. There are many public links in most areas of the country. You can golf with friends or take lessons. If you already golf, sign up for a tournament. Weekends are often full of fundraising tournaments. You will not only be meeting people, but supporting a local charity.

Keeping Busy

There are many charities that welcome volunteers. You can join one that might appeal to men over 50. The charities that sponsor local sporting events usually have an abundance of men helping organise these events. Be realistic and join one that you have some passion for. You would not want to meet a man at a venue that you joined under false pretence.

Some of the bigger home improvement stores offer classes on just about any project in home remodelling. If this is something that appeals to you, join some of these classes. Men are plentiful in the home improvement aisles of these stores.

Do you have a flair for drama? Joining a local theatre group could be all the drama you need when looking to meet men over 50. Theatre groups can be large, with many of the people working behind the scenes in production. You don't have to be the one on stage.

More Traditional

Are you an avid reader and love to discuss a good book? Then join a book club in your area. Book clubs can be found by calling your local library.

If gardening is a hobby of yours, joining a local garden club would be a way to meet men over 50 who share in your interest.

You can take a course in the evening at a local college. Find a subject that spikes your interest and go back to college. The evening courses have many older adults who are going back to school to learn new things.

Wine tasting events are another venue to meet men over 50. These events are usually advertised in the local newspapers. You could look into wine clubs as well.
