Sex and the Sixty (Year Old) Pt 7

March 2, 2012

My friend Susan is back, after a short hiatus from the world of online dating (“I am NEVER going to do this again, and you can’t make me”). I had my work cut out for me. I gave her a lot of reasons why she should jump back in (“You are a fabulous woman and you […]

The Rebuttal

As Sitting Bull said, after the Battle of the Little Bighorn, “There are two sides to every story.”  And, because I would heartily agree, I hereby present a rebuttal from Movie Man. Movie Man, aka Mike, is actually a Good Guy and he has become a good friend of Susan’s, in spite of their first date.  When […]

I’ve had a lot of fun writing about Susan this week.  Many of you, consisting of one person, asked if Susan was real.  I have actually asked her that same question on several occasions, and she has always considered thoughtfully and then told me to shut up. Susan and I have been friends since 1998.  […]

When my friend Susan goes on actual dates, she does exactly the same things that most people do.  She goes out to dinner. She goes to the movies. She goes to female impersonator shows. But somehow, the end result always seems to veer off course. Sometimes, she and the guy never even make it to […]

When Susan arranges her first meetings with men, she has to make sure she meets the right person.  This is because she has, on at least one occasion, had an entire conversation with the wrong person in a public place.  His wife, when she arrived, was not amused. Susan’s way of making sure that this […]

For those of you who believe my friend Susan hasn’t given online dating enough of a chance, rest assured she has been doing this since the original site, cavematch.com. Thus far, she has only excluded the sites that would result in the FBI confiscating her computer. After she is contacted by men, and, after she […]

Welcome to a five-part series of reposts, a veritable cornucopia of past drivel, a best of, a past hits, a test of quantum physics.  If all reality isn’t reality at all, and if everything is happening at the same time with no past, present, or future, then not only isn’t this a repost, the events portrayed are […]

Life in the Boomer Lane thought she had covered all of Susan’s experiences of the initial meetings with men, but she had forgotten one very important episode. When Susan agreed to her rules about coffee only/60 minute limit, she decided it would be a good idea to knock out (most likely not literally) as many […]

When Life in the Boomer Lane’s friend, Susan, goes on actual dates, she does exactly the same things that most people do. She goes out to dinner. She goes to the movies. She goes to female impersonator shows. But somehow, the end result always seems to veer off course. Sometimes, she and the guy never […]

When Susan arranges her first meetings with men, she is sometimes a bit too intentional about making sure she meets the right person. This is because she once went to the infamous bagel place and immediately saw a good looking man sitting at one of the tables. As he fit the description of who she was […]
