Sex and the Sixty-Year-Old: Evolution Has Come to This

January 26, 2013

64

It’s believed that humans originated about 200,000 years ago in the Middle Paleolithic period.  According to Wikipedia, they began to experience “full behavioral modernity” about 50,000 years ago. Susan, in joining a new dating site, has apparently discovered a pool of Homo Sapiens Sapiens who managed to avoid the shift to full behavioral modernity.  Fortunately, I’m […]

Sex and the Sixty (Year Old): eSmarmony

January 15, 2013

29

In an effort to stay off the online dating sites, my friend Susan decided to sell her condo, move into an apartment, furnish the entire apartment, and start hosting dinner parties.  After awhile, though, she ran out of spaces to decorate and got sick of eating leftover salmon.  She was forced to go revisit the […]

More Magazine, in an eye-opening new survey of 1200 women age 60-95+, explored, among other areas, marriage, mommyhood, mates, and mistakes.  While the overwhelming response of respondents was that life keeps getting better, and that, specifically, their happiest decade was after age 40 (81%), all that self-congratulatory  drivel stops when the subject of parenting comes up.

Hey Paula, You are About to Lose Your Paul

About a year ago, Frank came into Susan’s life.  We will call him Paul for obvious reasons.  If any reader doesn’t understand this, he/she is even more intellectually challenged than is this blogger. We’ll also exercise artistic license with Paul’s communications to her. Susan had a wonderful date with him.  The next day, he sent […]

The following is an interview with Susan, the heroine  of the Sex and the Sixty (Year Old) series.  Contrary to the title of the post, Susan is not the actual oldest living single.  She has just had a lot of dates.  In fact, if you could stretch out all of her dates end-to-end, they would […]

Sex and the Sixty (Year Old) Sets Sail Again

July 17, 2012

Susan, immortalized in my many previous Sex and the Sixty Year Old posts, is at it again.  The girl just can’t stay away.  This time, she is trying a new and improved dating site for folks over age 50.  Her primary goal is not to meet men over 50.  It is more about her getting […]

NPR has reported today that, after 115 years together, one couple is calling it quits. Bibi and Poldi are giant tortoises who bonded when they were young. But after more than a century together, Bibi decided she’d had enough. She began biting her partner’s shell. The staff at the Austrian zoo said they’re not sure what caused […]

The Hunger-for-Beauty Games Pt3: Redefining Beauty and Aging

June 1, 2012

65

Most of us passed through early middle age in a blur of child rearing and/or attention to our professional goals.  We could have been forgiven for not paying much attention to the aging process. And, unless we were unfortunate enough to go through the dissolution of a marriage and subsequent entry into the world of dating, […]

But first, please check out The Byronic Man.  Joel, the author, took time from his busy schedule of hilarity to feature Life in the Boomer Lane in his “20 Questions” series.   If you like her answers to his questions, let her know.  If not,  she’ll change them for you.                                                                                                                                                                                  ***** In the countries with the longest life expectancies, […]

Letitia, Uncovered

Back in 1999, a year that occurred in the last century, back before youtube, the iPod, and the no-contact jacket, my friend Susan and I decided to start a speed dating company.  We did this because: 1. We had no experience of starting a business of any kind 2. We had no experience of speed […]
