6 Types Of Senior Singles You’ll Meet In New York
Has it been a while since you were in the dating scene? Are you unsure of how to go about it and who you might meet? The opportunities for everything in New York are endless, and that goes for the types of senior singles you’ll meet here.
Are you ready to take a peek at who you might trip across?
First, ladies, here are your men!
1. The Wall Street Banker
Think Michael Douglas in Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. The Wall Street executive is a very serious fellow, indeed, and his number 1 goal in life is to make money! But he will take his relationships as seriously as he does his job.
2. The Professional Men: Doctors and Lawyers
Smitten by Dr. McDreamy on Grey’s Anatomy? Be prepared though - these men are busy. During a date you may very well be interrupted by his cell phone ringing, followed by a quick, “Sorry, gotta go,” as he exits stage. Can you deal with this, knowing it is probably a regular occurrence? On the other hand, you will benefit from his intelligent mind, meaning conversation will be engaging.
3. The Entrepreneur
Think all of the celebs on Shark Tank. Also harboring a major penchant for making money, the entrepreneur is usually in fast forward mode as you run to keep up with him. One thing is for sure, life will never be dull.
4. The Actor
How about Al Pacino! Actually, we’re also talking about painters, musicians, directors, and any man who makes his living in the arts. These men are romantic, quirky and expressive. They will wrap you in their arms and take you by the hand to wonderful, often Bohemian, places.
5. The Jet Setter
Aristotle Onassis was king of this type. These men are independent and can afford to go wherever they want, whenever they want. Have you always wanted to visit the French Riviera? Or perhaps St. Moritz? Then this is your guy.
6. The Retiree
Think Don Ameche in the movie Cocoon! The retiree could hold a number of different personas. He may be happy, carefree and pursuing all the things he loves like fishing in Harlem Meer in Central Park, or wandering through the stacks in the New York Public Library.
Now gents, it’s your turn to meet people in NYC. Who might the lucky lady be?
1. The Executive Career Woman
Visualize Carly Fiorina. This woman has worked hard to get where she is and is focused, ambitious and serious. However, as a mature single she is beginning to think about retiring, but before she does, her plans will indeed be meticulous and if you play your cards right, may be a part of them.
2. The Actress
A woman in the arts is a freethinker and demonstrative in most ways. She is creative, individual and sentimental and perhaps will give you a run for your money.
3. Museum Docent
This lady knows her stuff! Wherever she serves as a docent she is an expert in the artists and paintings that are featured. She will fill your head with all sorts of facts and figures, so if you share her passions, you are in for an education!
4. The Small Business Owner
Imagine Rachel Ray behind the counter of her gourmet grocery store or running her specialty bookstore. Here is a lady who loves dealing with people, is friendly and just plain fun to be around. Chances are she is working more for fun than for money.
5. The Writer/Author
Diane Keaton all the way on this one! Whether she’s a fiction or non-fiction writer, she is confident, inventive and always seeking a new adventure.
6. The Retired Grandma
No matter what, grandmas are happy people. They babysit, bake cookies and take their little pumpkins to the park. One thing is for sure: get ready to see lots of pictures and hear lots of stories!
