Lady suggests dance classes as the perfect way to find romance
DEAR ANNIE: I was saddened by the letter from “L. H. in Montgomery,” the 82- year- old woman who has been searching for love for 40 years.
My husband and I are senior citizens, 75 and 80 years old. We have been dancing ( ballroom style) in senior centers and other dance organizations for 25 years. It is amazing how many friendships and relationships are developed between us “old people” when we’re dancing. Of course, none of us feels old.
Please tell L. H. to check out local senior centers or those in other towns nearby. She also could check for social dance clubs ( ballroom style dancing, country dancing, etc.) in her area. One of our area senior dancers teaches line dancing, which is a great way to dance if you don’t have a partner. Dancing is great social interaction. I hope she can find something in her area.

Dear Suisun City: Thank you for the suggestion. There are many excellent activities for people of all ages who are looking to meet others. Trying to find someone online is OK as far as it goes, but nothing beats meeting folks in person who are also participating in an activity you enjoy. Whatever method you choose, just be yourself and hopefully things will fall into place.
