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.
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?
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.

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.
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.
