You live in the wrong place or hang out with the wrong people. I'm female, around your age, race bikes and know lots of gals in our age range who ride. Men too. And lots of triathletes and swimmer in this age range. I do own 3 TVs, but also 7 bikes.

I know no 60 year olds that are sedentary and just want to eat.
Sorry, thatís why I used the word ďtendĒ in the sentence. Maybe I should have used an emoji.🤗

As a woman we have the same issues as men. I'm 64, but look a bit younger and I'm still fairly active. Men my own age look too old and not many men who are 55-60 are interested in a 64 year old. So I just don't bother even looking anymore.
You are an unicorn. Keep looking, you sound like a cool person.

Yes I do live in the wrong place. I go out Mtn biking and Iím the only person doing it on the trail. Same when I trail run. My state has a high obesity rate unfortunately. But I love it out here. Thx for the feedback.

I am not sure how to take that statement, but you are married so how would you know about dating anyway?

So, like I say, overall, having a man in our age group usually means more work. One way or another.
THIS. If you aren't willing to invest in an erectile drug to help with this if it is an issue for you, then I am not going to spend 30 minutes trying to revive the dead. I have many tools to keep me happy in much less time. As the poster mentioned, too much work for nothing.

Grocery store. Wear a fresh shirt and a smile on your face. Just strike up small talk.

Nope! Forest was deserted. No ladies. No guys either. One was leaving the trailhead as I was getting my bike ready. It's a glorious time in North Idaho. All the tourists have gone home. Kids are in school. Heat is a distant memory and it hasn't turned cold yet. Perfect time to get out into the forest and mountains. Life is good!

Local community art centers are full of women over 60, go to the opening of an exhibition, usually 2 hours long, and mingle. Artists like it when someone asks about their work and they are often standing next to it hoping someone looks at it. Wine and cheese is usually available so you can meet and mingle at no cost. There is absolutely no pressure to buy anything.

In my area of Florida the art centers have shows where 50 or more artists will display their work in a show several times a year. It's informal and you will see attractive women of all ages and types. All you need to do is smile and ask "Is this your painting?" and you are starting a conversation. You don't need to know anything about art, just keep asking questions, nothing personal like "Are you married?", more like "How long have you been painting/sculpting/drawing" or make a comment like "I really like _______ about your painting".

After you've been to a couple "openings" you might see some of the same women you've talked to already. Maybe they'll be looking for you to show up too. Women outnumber men at these about 20 to 1 so your odds are good. Most artists I know are introverts so you'll have to be the extrovert to get a date. (Obviously talk to women who aren't wearing wedding rings lol)

If you too are an introvert then take a group class that women are in the majority (art again but also genealogy, travel lectures). Seeing each other week after week you can get acquainted.

As much as I once enjoyed being married and much of the day-to-day routine of living with a man, this sounds like an absolutely delightful plan!
