I'm an old granny lady and put on my "Rodeo Queen" deer leather ensemble with my best cowgirl boots and a stetson -- picture Dale Evens or The Grand Ol' Opry of 1952 -- and hit a club or two. I like to drink (soft drinks now), flirt, dance, and just enjoy the club experience.
This isn't something I'd be likely to do often, but yeah, maybe once in 2 years I break out one of the outfits (Motorcycle Leathers with cap, Flapper ensemble) and hit one of the bigger clubs. If there were early evening soirees at a good club, I'd probably go more often, but you know how us old farts are about going to be early, getting up early.
My favorite type of club plays what I used to call "alternative" music and has plenty of cool lighting doing cool stuff, along with a dance floor and a friendly crowd. I don't mind spending on a special occasion, so price isn't that much of a consideration -- up to a point.
OK, enough about me. There does come a point where you look silly hitting on babes, where you make yourself ridiculous approaching the young dudes in the same you did when you were 20 or 25. Yes, go to the club, but act your age, dress your age. There will be a lot of "looking for romance" all around you, but there comes a time to think of yourself as an observer rather than a participant.
Of course there are young men who are drawn to older women (you'd be surprised, and no not gold diggers) and young women who are drawn to older men. If someone is chatting you up, be open to new ideas.
