With the new Sex&the City movie merely weeks away, the editors at SingleEdition.com thought it might be a good opportunity to share some tips for the single “Samantha” among us - specifically the 25 million unmarried American women age 45 and up.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
1. Decide Not to Date Vertically: Fed up with dating up and down? You’re in good company! Terms like cougar and sugar daddy paint a poor picture of women, portraying them as oversexed or money grubbing predators. Commit to finding a man your own age and you won’t have to spend time babysitting or doing the care-giving. Start your search off right by signing up for a niche dating site, there are plenty for 40 plus singles from which to choose like Meetcha.com, Prime.Lavalife.com and SeniorPeopleMeet.com. If you’re new to digital dating do as Samantha would do and enlist the services of an online dating coach or professional profile writer.
2. Supper with Strangers: Dinners with friends can be impossible when you’re the last single one standing in your crew. Don’t panic! Secret supper clubs are springing up across the country, serving up gourmet meals to men and women of all ages. While getting a reservation may require a little sleuthing since most of the hosting chefs are operating out of their own homes without a license, once you’re in your girlfriends will want to follow suit. If that’s not an option in your area, take the party to your place and start your own underground dinner club.
3. Embrace Shape Shifting Technologies: In the United States alone more than 11 million cosmetic surgical and nonsurgical procedures are performed a year but not everyone is prepared to go under the knife. In fact, many fabulous ladies like Samantha are opting for form shifting undergarments and so can you! Today’s shape-wear is not like the girdle your grandma used to wear.
