"You just simply have to have better flirting skills over 50," says Rabin. "That includes listening, but also talking to people in line at the supermarket or while waiting for a latte."
Rabin suggests asking open-ended questions, such as Have you been to this new restaurant? I heard its wonderful, or throwing in a sincere compliment.
