The Date Watchers are single, over 50 and open to romance

Sweetsge570The cadre of divorced women hovering around 50, call themselves The Date Watchers.

They get together about once a week at the  Mill Valley Champagne Bakery and weigh in on dating.

Topics discussed include dating at 50+, dating debacles and fantasies as well as romance rites and wrongs. They discuss lofty subjects like how many calories in a sweet nothing?  Who pays on the second date? Is Ethics a game two people can play? They share flirting tips and success stories.

Required reading this month is Greg Behrendt’s “He’s Just Not That Into You” a hard hitting, no nonsense book – some regard as their ‘bible’. Most of them like the movie, too.

They subscribe to the sage observations of Mother Teresa. And Mae West.

Mother Teresa said: If we want a love message to be heard, it has got to be sent out. To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.

Mae West said: “Too much of a good thing can be wonderful.” Pretty much, that is their mantra.

There are about a half dozen women, at any given meeting, and they fall into three distinct categories. Roughly one half of the women have put their big toe into the Internet dating pool. Some are happy with just that much contact. Other members have dived into the deep end hearts first. They are the true storytellers. The third faction is made up of true “watchers” and they say they live vicariously through the stories – their daring dating sisters.

Next week four of the girls are going to do Canon Balls  into the deep end of the Dating Pool and sign up on Match.com for a Free 7-Day Trial.

You know: It is better to be looked over than overlooked. Mae West

They have plans to ponder age-old questions about men as hunters – women as waiters?  Who has time to wait? What are the Rules of the Game in 2013?
For this group of dynamic, interested women -there are no CCR’s – however, they do have a code of ethics based on the Golden Rule….

I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me are the number you get in a diamondMae West
