Making new friends and building new relationships with couples older than 50 and married more than 20 years requires three simple steps. Those of us who are over 50 and married more than 20 years are social creatures. We want to meet new people, learn new things, and go places we have never been before.
Meeting New People Over 50 Married More than 20 Years
Libraries, bookstores, coffee shops, theaters and university lectures are among the many places our contemporaries go to hang out and socialize. Our peers love Starbucks and other new wave coffee gathering places because all age groups are there talking and sharing ideas.
Libraries with cafes are places we go to read newspapers and magazines. We are there to be around people. We love people. We need people. We go to sporting events, university lectures and bookstores for the opportunity to be around people we have never met before. We have been around a bit and have the same to share with sharing others.
Learning New Things
We are excited to learn new things if it excites us. We learn to speak new languages. We learn how to pan for gold, make movies, write books, and cook. We enjoy being creative with painting sculpture and music. All this works for us because we have the time and the discipline necessary for effective learning.
Bonnie and I have friends over 50 and married more than 20 Years that go skydiving, learn ballroom dancing and start new businesses. Many of us get together to share with each other the new things we are doing. We are also excited to explore spiritual boundaries fixed most of our lives. We appreciate freedom.
Going Places We Have Never Been Before
Contemporaries over 50 married more than 20 Years enjoy the idea of traveling even if it is just across town and to each other’s homes on a regular basis. Going to spend a night or a weekend in a bed and breakfast is a first for some. Going to a professional sporting event is a first for some. Going to a class after years away from school can be a first for some.
Whether the place you want to go is some place in your neighborhood, across the country or across the world; others want to share these experiences too. Cruises are popular. Taking the train across the U.S., Canada and Europe are exciting ventures.
Being over 50 and married more than 20 Years is not a sentence of social restraint. It is a new venture in freedom to be and do whatever you want to be and do.
Get out of your comfort zone. Meet some new people. Make some new friends. Build some new relationships. Learn something new. Go somewhere you never been to do something you have never done.
You have one life. Make it meaningful. Our time is now.
