Hi from The OC. While I am here in Orange County for awhile, invariably I’m getting active in the community where I live.
Well, the Episcopal Church (no, I’m not a member, but I will attend their services) is having its once every three year General Convention here right nearby in Anaheim, CA.
And they are doing a community service project in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity. This is for the teens group. Well, for anyone who has ever chaperoned or been one of the Adults who helped any teen group (please read, every teacher who is out there reading this will be able to relate and identify), you KNOW there is always a lot of PRE-work which needs to be done before the event.
So, as the adults, we have a whole lot of work to get done Friday before the teens can come in an put stuff together further and paint on Saturday.
Yes. I’m helping out. I and other adults (gasp, yes, Single Boomers, most of the group) will be descending upon the Anaheim Convention Center and putting together building materials for what is known as “Gordon’s House.”
And you are perhaps wondering WHAT does this have to do with dating?
Help your community.
Do some stuff which is (certainly in my case) a little different than what you are always doing with your life.
And in the process, you will meet others. You will meet other singles. You will meet, bond, and connect with some others who may be the ones to introduce you for your next date or your next marriage.
Statistics show in particular for the Single Baby Boomer demographic that the majority of Single Boomers meet their spouse via Others, through people they know.
And while you are at it, you’ll be having fun, radiating your wonderfulness, your most joyous self (yes, I will be wearing make-up AND also super casually dressed, which is good for my image to be seen a little differently periodically, yup, no high heels for this project! lol!), you will be being your most attractive self.
You are cultivating HABITS here. One of them is to GET OUT. The other is to (always be) MEETING A VARIETY OF NEW PEOPLE.
Go for it!
Happy Dating and Relationships!
