Don’t Base Friendships on Perceived Low Values
One of the biggest mistakes when searching for a partner in your 2nd and 3rd acts of life, is basing your search on a list of perceived low-value qualities. When you begin socializing after getting out of a long relationship, you subconsciously create a list of what type of guy you don’t want.
In most cases, the list contains physical low-value qualities of your former partner. Basing your assessment of potential partners on this list can do more harm than good.

Go for a first-meet with all the men you like with an open mind and the intention of truly getting to know that person. This is the secret of the art of befriending in your senior years.
