One woman was in her fifties and I overheard her telling a colleague that she was going to work this year on Christmas and New Years.
I am now living moment to moment in my soul. I have to trust in the process of my journey toward adapting to my new life
The decision whether to date in 2017 or carve out a good life exclusive of a relationship isn't a simple one. I have several single women friends in their 60s who fall into both categories, but most are simultaneously creating a life without a partner and at the same time seeking one.
There is nothing more boring than people complaining about sexual boredom. That is so ordinary, lackluster and, quite frankly, rather lazy. When we decide to actively nurture our sexuality, we are taking a stand for living a vibrant and pleasure filled life.
Life in the Boomer Lane has known several women who have been contacted by men who knew them as former boyfriends, decades earlier (in one case, at summer camp). These later-in-life reunions have been met with varying degrees of success.
Some of the most obvious developments happen in the sex toy business. Every year, there are dozens of flashy, new sex toys that promise to add new dimensions to the experience of sexual pleasure. So, if this is the case, why have I never mentioned them before?
I know for the sake of my family and friends I must find a life without Peter. I must find a safe haven through my mourning process. Mourning is the driving force that makes the journey of grief move forward.
However, maybe he really is just anxious. I would NOT put on the full court press with lingerie and ben wa balls and what have you. This is going to make him think you are a sex fiend and he will be even more anxious that he won't be up to snuff.
The sadness is profound, the hole in my heart is still cavernous, but the good news is that my heart keeps on beating.
Everyone it seems wants sex tips, sex hacks, how to make love better. How to keep the hot in relationships. How to turn a woman on. People come to me every day wanting to know 'the secret.' And it really starts with understanding that desire is the real female orgasm.
If you've dated a commitment-phobic man you might be very familiar with his Pursue/Panic Syndrome.
Having just barely survived a love- and chaos-filled Thanksgiving, Life in the Boomer Lane has been experiencing the same kind of whiplash that Mitt Romney must be feeling right now.
The ads for Christmas are already up so New Years ads can't be far behind. For many single boomers this is a tough time of year. Not being in a relationship or having a partner during the holidays can feel lonely and impart a sense of permanent singleness.
We are incredibly lucky that we found each other.
I've always wondered why people use the term 'feeling blue' when they are sad. The color that clouded my horizons after Peter died was most certainly gray, not blue. I felt I was in a bad British mystery movie, in the midst of a gray, hazy, dense fog and I couldn't find my way through the mist.
You see them all over the city -- or maybe I should say you see us.
How many times have you dreamed about the perfect man finding you? He comes into your life and sweeps you off your feet with his charm and good looks.
After the recent election, many in our country are experiencing deep grief. They are discovering that they must learn to understand grief and accept its power, in order to move forward. The word grievous is derived from the word grief meaning sadness.
Not to make it about money, but I'm still pretty uplifted by a bra I bought 10 years ago at Target that cost me $14.99. That's approximately .75 cents per boob, per year.
