Things have been moving so quickly here at Stitch Central recently that it’s easy to forget that it’s only a little over two months since we announced ourselves to the world.In fact, we’re not sure you could even call it an “announcement” …
Dating male seeking female
Simon and Garfunkel's song title is applicable to the turbulent boomer dating waters. I have been rejected by my first two online dating hopefuls. My choices: spend the rest of my life living alone or jump into the over-50 dating pool.
It's a consistently divisive issue, and I'm surprised how stubbornly contentious it remains. Having run into several issues over the years, I am still debating the pros and cons of those choices. If you are over 30 and/or divorced, you have probably had your heart broken, and so has the person you are dating.
It's also a great time for some self-reflection about what you're looking for in a new relationship.
This self-reflection often includes reading up on love and relationships to make sure you are wiser and better equipped for relationship success. I switch gender and take a look at what I would see if I were a bloke. After the passing of my wife of 31 years, I found myself alone for the first time in my life.
It's a love letter of sorts, in that the guy who wrote it was genuinely interested in her. My problem is not the men I meet, though living in a rural Pennsylvania makes it difficult to meet anyone who doesn't spend his weekends in camouflage tracking deer.
My problem is that being with someone other than my former husband still feels like cheating.
We all know people who are divorced, widowed or never married and we've all heard their common lament: It's hard to find an interesting date when you are no longer young.
We all know the exaggerated feelings that come along with this, feelings of helplessness, anger etc.
Let the world see how amazing you are on the outside and your amazing character will do the rest.
When it comes to dating and romance now, what differences would a single Dad in his 50s encounter compared to his single son in his 20s?
Just as I think I have been stood up, a lone chap arrives, clad in a lime-green anorak, looking anxious and slighter in stature than I was expecting.
