Bob Dylan's famous line, "The times, they are a changin," is more true today, then when he first sang it in the 1960's.

Change is something Baby Boomers know a lot about. They've been responsible for doing things differently all their lives.

Boomers want relationships. They are very hopeful that they can find love again, after a loss of a spouse or partner.

It is true that Boomers do not see themselves at 50, the same way their parents did,when they were 50. Medical advances have made Boomers think of 60 as the new 50, and 50 as the new 40. Old age doesn't start, until the late 70's, if you ask the Boomers.

The generation , that as a group, forced America to leave Vietnam, ushered in the civil rights movement, fought for Woman's Liberation, and demanded positive changes in the workplace, will again bring innovation to connecting with others. They will bring about change in the way 50- plus- people- date. They will redefine what it means to be a senior citizen, who want a meaningful relationship.

The group who said, "Make Love, Not War", will continue to seek love. Some of the ways will be online dating. Dating sites advertise to Boomers all the time. The 78 million people, in this age group, are good for business. Boomers like to try these new ways to meet people. They're open minded.

Needless to say, caution is needed with this new way to find a relationship. Check out a few sites before taking the plunge. Ask friends, about sites they have tried, to meet people to date.

Travel is another way to meet. There are cruises especially for Boomers. Alumni Associations have trips. What a great way to connect. Through new travel experiences, people have something in common. You enjoy together, many travel activities in the country, or state, you're in. You get to know your travel companion a bit this way.

Colleges are setting up a lot of non credit courses for Boomers. The list of subjects include: art, music, history literature, field trips to museums, trips to theatre productions, landscaping, and book clubs.

Often senior volunteers are needed. at colleges. Paid work at universities, is something to consider, for ways to make new friends. This in turn can lead to dating. and a relationship.
