Men in their 50’s and 60’s can still act like little boys and it sometimes feels like we are all in high school again, even though our ages tell a different story.
As we get older, the traditional ways of meeting a mate get harder and harder to find.
Meeting in college, at work, through friends, or at church have been the normal ways of meeting people, but as we get older, those methods are less and less effective, so that’s why online dating has become so prevalent.
I first did online dating in the early 2000’s and then again 3 years ago.
I think more relationships than ever start online these days!
I have several single girlfriends that I have hung out with the last 5 years since my divorce and it’s so nice to have other friends who are in the same situation to talk things over with.
They understand what it’s like to date at this age and try to find a good relationship out there.It’s not the best place to be, but it is better than being miserable, I’ll tell you that.If you’re someone who got it right the first time and married the man of your dreams, had children, and now are enjoying your older years with the love of your life and grandchildren, well…. You can count your blessings right now that you’re not still out there, but you might get a kick out of reading this anyway.I’ve heard from so many of you over the last 5 years since my divorce who had similar situations to mine.Divorce is painful and can be devastating as mine was for me, but it’s not the end of the world.I made plenty of bad choices along the way and it didn’t go the way I wanted it to go, but the blessings aren’t over yet, nor is life over yet.
