Scenario: You’re divorced, widowed, bachelored or bacheloretted and want to get back into the social scene. The idea of lonely seniors getting together these days may not be as popular in song, film and TV as it is for young couples.

However, as long-ago Frank Sinatra's lyrics to "The Second Time Around" declared:

It's that second time you hear
Your love song sung;
Makes you think perhaps that love,
Like youth, is wasted on the young. Travel is one of the best ways for seniors to find new companions. First step is to get acquainted. When you arrange that first date with another seasoned citizen, there are many ways to start. If you don't yet know each other very well, make it just a short hour for lunch, a chance to get acquainted, observe the stranger across the table and to quickly decide if your first date will be the last.

Another way to learn about each other is to arrange the first-date evening to be a double date. Go to dinner, and later to a concert or evening river cruise with mutual friends. Observe how your new date relates to people.

Keep up with the senior social scene involving scheduled dances at churches, hotels, senior communities and other locations. Invite your first-time date to be your guest at one of them..

Attend a stage play at your local college or high school. Show support for education and the creativity of the up-and-coming generation. If there are professional theaters in your area, take your first-time date to a Broadway-style musical revival from an earlier era.

After several dates, and you’re comfortable with each other, suggest a shared vacation. One of the most convenient is a single seniors only cruise. That way, you can not only get to know each other better after days and evenings together. You’ll feel comfortable with many other single seniors sharing the same experience.

Enjoy each other’s company, and as Sinatra sang, it can be even better the second time around.
