The September issue of Elle Magazine (“Our Biggest Fashion Issue Ever! 650+ pages of approximately 1200 models who, all together, weigh less than this magazine!”) has an article titled “The Evolution of Wooing,” in which it details how the art of wooing has changed from 1993-1913.   1993: The world is a cold, heartless place, […]

The Perks of Online Dating After 50: A Guest Post from eHarmony Canada

February 27, 2013

14

    My Sex and the Sixty-Year-Old posts got the attention of eHarmony Canada, who requested equal time.  I’m happy to give it because, in spite of what I write about Susan’s misadventures in the dating world, I believe that online dating works.  I, along with countless other formerly single people, found love online.  I’m also […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
