But watch out for those jitters — they can make you feel so anxious that you project your own hopes on to this new person, rather than noticing his or her true nature. Ask questions about the issues that matter most to you. On a date not too long ago, I worried I'd been hit by lightning. That view discounts the possibility of magic — an undeniable resonance that a man and woman feel for each other, often right from the start.
At some point you'll be ready to move out of your brain (which brought you to this crossroads) and into your heart (which will show you the path to follow ahead).
Trust what that second organ is telling you; your feelings are your ultimate truth.

Check out this interview I did for the Sixty and Me Show with dating coach Lisa Copeland. Fortunately, in some ways, there has never been a better time for women over 60 to be in the dating world.
We discuss what is different about dating after 60 and how men and women our age often want different things from life, having different emotional needs and in many ways speaking a “different language.” You might need to re-learn how to flirt with men, how to make a man feel good about himself, and how to present your most confident and alluring self in the dating world. You really cannot give up after just a few dates, that you have to relax, meet lots of guys and enjoy the process. The rise of divorce among “silver splitters” means there are more single older men – and there might be more great guys out there than you might expect at first glance, especially if you give them a chance.
As part of this singleton trend, more women over 60 are looking to meet men in their age group – but dating is different after 60 than it was in our younger years.
Many single women over 50 are simply asking, “Where are all the older single men?
Here's why: Most people resist the idea of seeking out someone who's just like them because they fear that person will share not just their qualities but their faults.
Au contraire: Someone who mirrors your personality, tastes and temperament is likelier to be your soul mate than your evil twin.
