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 […]

Interview With the World’s Oldest Living Single

July 23, 2012

27

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

45

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 […]

The Language of Love

May 8, 2012

It is commonly assumed that the most powerful words in creating relationship consist of one of the following: “Oh my, yes, ooooooh.” “Hmmmm, baby, you taste so fine.” “You make me hot all over ohmygoddoesallthatbelongtoyou?!” Shockingly, this is not the case.  James Pennebaker, a psychologist who studies the use of pronouns has determined that pronouns […]

Sex and the Sixty (Year Old): Show Me Yours and I’ll Show You Mine

April 1, 2012

The long and illustrious history of photography began many centuries before the first photograph was actually produced. Brilliant, creative minds like Chinese philosopher Mo Ti and Greek mathematicians Aristotle and Euclid described a pinhole camera in the 5th and 4th centuries BC. The first actual “modern” photograph of people,“Boulevard du Temple”, was taken by Louis […]

Sex and the Sixty (Year Old) Pt 7

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 […]

Middle Age vs The Middle Ages

February 22, 2012

48

Many people nowadays confuse being middle aged with being in the Middle Ages.  They can be forgiven for a certain amount of confusion, since neither group of people had births recorded on iPhones and immediately posted on social media networks around the planet.  Neither group grew up with Tickle Me Elmo and Teenage Mutant Ninja […]

Sex and the Sixty (Year Old) Pt 5

January 20, 2012

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

January 19, 2012

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 […]

Sex and the Sixty (Year Old) Pt 2

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 […]
