Middle aged sex dating
That is, as long as divorce didn’t leave us financially insecure, as it does for many women. I was in that market on and off for the last decade.
Still, if we do decide to call it quits, many of those with greying temples still want company, if not necessarily a spouse, and we have joined dating sites with a vengeance. While I returned to a long-standing relationship (nearly eleven years at this point) with a BF who moved in last May, I was recently reminded by stories from friends about the challenges of Dating While Middle-Aged.
“All due respect, you have every right to your feelings about what’s going on in your life, but I’m neither interested in that kind of language, nor do I want to hear your anger about someone you chose to be with.
You might consider how that’s affecting me, someone you barely just met.”He countered with how “this shouldn’t have happened to him” and he would “say anything he wanted about this woman.”Here’s my problem with that.
One NFL playoff weekend I’d gotten into an email conversation with someone in his late forties (my favorite age range) and he’d asked me to join him for a concert.
With that in our backpacks, we launch online and start the daunting dating dance all over again.Before said BF and I decided to give it a serious try, last January I had joined Zoosk, as had turned out to be such a horror show especially for those of us over sixty. By the time I joined Zoosk, I’d had plenty of experience online.While Zoosk is no different from any other site in that it has its share of scammers and manufactured profiles, unlike Fitness Singles it has a great many more folks participating. For those of us in middle age or trending towards a bit older (I was 64 at the time), this process can be daunting.I can’t recall how this came up, but about seven minutes into this call this man, about whom I knew nothing, who wanted me to go out with him, laid into his previous relationship with such fury and viciousness that I was taken aback.
In fact, he did this three times.“Hang on a minute,” I said.
After many years of marriage, facing retirement and lots more time together, a great many Baby Boomers are calling it quits.
