Oh where oh where have all the good and single men gone? This is one of the biggest problems that women over 50 face, as it seems like most men at the same age are already spoken for. And the statistics aren’t on our side, as the ratio of single men to single women takes a huge dip in numbers.
Ah… But before you start to panic, you should know that there are plenty of good, single, and over 50 men available! However, when you meet them, you’ve got to know how to play the game.
