You are grownup and you understand how important it is to be empathetic. They want love, companionship, romance and commitment and are doing their best to navigate the rocky shores of dating over 40.
Nice, successful, decent people who find themselves single at this time in their life.
She’s a much better writer than we have on the guy’s side of things!

I wrote this comment on a message board for women over 50 in response to one person who was scared to date: If you think of dating as your way to learn about another person and about yourself without risking anything, it can be fun -- go for coffee or a walk or dinner with someone new, talk, see what you both enjoy discussing and doing.
I'm not looking to replace my beloved husband, who died in 2008.

But then, I only took one psych course in college……I like to keep things simple.• But by far the most important advice I can give is LISTEN! Yes, money is important (I don't have much, so I can only assume from what I've heard), and being attractive is great (I'm not Clooney but I try my best.) But listening trumps them all. Being genuinely interested in hearing about their histories, their successes, their disappointments, their journeys yet to take. • And fourth, listening is an amazingly under-appreciated talent. Hearing someone's story and details about their life is what it's all about, as far as I'm concerned. I am always stunned by how most people just don't listen, and how far one can get simply by listening.
