Sex and the Sixty (Year Old) Pt 7

March 2, 2012

41

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 […]

Dating After 50: Revealing Secrets. Or not.

February 9, 2012

49

An overwhelming number of people who choose to enter the dating world after age 50 have already lived at least 50 years.  And, if they are like most people over 50 (and many people under,) some of their early choices in life, while not resulting in life in a maximum security prison, may have still […]

The Rebuttal

January 21, 2012

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.  […]

Sex and the Sixty (Year Old) Pt 4

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 […]

The Myth of Older Men Wanting Younger Women

January 7, 2011

Ooooh, provocative blog title.  Life in the Boomer Lane can hear the heavy breathing of people lining up on either side of this debate that is so incendiary it will make you forget about bedbugs and J-Woww’s nude photo scandal.  So here goes: LBL has an ongoing disagreement with her friend Jean.  She insists that all […]

Go to Craft Fairs or Become A Lesbian

Elisabeth Hasselbeck thinks a lot of older lesbians would have turned out straight if they could only land a man.  The co-host of “The View” said older women who have led heterosexual lives are choosing same-sex partners because men their age are chasing younger women. “All the older men are going for younger women, leaving […]
