I notice that lots of people who were married for maybe 10 years or less seem to say…we got married early, found out it didn’t work, and then later remarried and have found long term, happiness with their next partner/spouse. ) increase the number of potential men for you, but I think you will see that age is only a number, unlike it was, say if you were 30, dating a 20 year old. Go on dates, but don’t force the serious relationship. What I also notice is that I don’t seem to hear any/as many happy stories about people (like me) who were married 20-25 years, got divorced, and then found happiness/ marriage, etc again. I have always believed that 50’s is in fact, no-man’s land, whether you are single, married, divorced or widowed, the reason being that you aren’t really young anymore, but you aren’t old either. I am me and all I can do is live life to my potential. The thing that bothered me most about your email is this part: You write: “found happiness/marriage etc.
You get new hair, new clothes, to match who you want to be.
Nobody's going to fault her for using Botox, dermabrasion, getting a nip and tuck. She knows that collaboration is a valuable part of being successful.
As she ages, her sexuality becomes more important, and she is better able to enjoy it.
I am now wearing hip-hugging jeans, leather -- everything.
You can tell her you like or don't like it -- but that doesn't mean she's going to follow your advice. Today, there are entire web sites, companies, and services devoted to the over-50 demographic. She's forming partnerships with other women's businesses.
A world of opportunities opens up when you turn 50. Women buy 80% of consumer goods and services, and among the 80 million baby boomers, that's power. If you have the attitude that life is precious, that life is grandiose, that you don't want to waste any time, you will make this quality time. She's following her dreams, starting her own business. If someone is trying to talk you into wearing pink because it's trendy, you don't let them influence you.
We also checked out what prominent authors Shirley W. I felt like I could say what I wanted to say, do things I wanted to do, and wear things I wanted to wear. At 50, if you use condoms it's for safe sex, not for avoiding pregnancy.
Mitchell (Fabulous After 50 and Sensational After 60) and Jane Ganahl (Naked on the Page: The Misadventures of My Unmarried Midlife) had to say about women aging, then sprinkled in a few observations from 60 Minutes' crusty humorist Andy Rooney.
I may be generalizing but do you see the same thing? If in your 40’s, it seems OK to me to date guys in their 30’s, 40’s or 50’s. Guys in their 30’s are definitely out, guys in the 40’s might work, but they might want women in their 30’s or 40’s, guys in their 50’s definitely want girls in their 30’s or 40’s, and guys in their 60’s are just too old. Being new at this, I’m going to go for just being my Gosh darn self and if someone wants to date me, great, and if they think I’m too old, then so be it.
