I remember my first ever online-booked meet. I can still picture walking up to the door of the restaurant and pulling it open.
After being single for several months, I felt it was time to get back up on the dating horse – but I was too afraid of online dating after 50.
Well, online dating is pretty much the way of the world nowadays, and if you want to meet someone single of the opposite sex, or same sex, your best chance for success is the internet.

Women over 60 are often eager to travel and see the world. In fact, traveling is one of the things that many women most look forward to in retirement.
Unfortunately, some people feel that they just can’t afford the luxury of travel. So, to help you reach your dream destination faster, here are a few ideas for how you can save money on your travel costs.
Airports can be stressful. This could be your first trip and negotiating the maze of buildings is challenging. There are so many people, corridors, signs, shops and distractions.
Traveling solo and living like a local is a dream many older women share. The thought of immersing yourself in a culture you find fascinating is alluring. However, many mature women never take the plunge, letting their apprehensions override their desires. If you are looking for ways to travel off the beaten path but still feel safe and comfortable, you will enjoy today’s video with Shila Desai!

When I asked the women in our community to share their advice for younger women, a surprising number recommended that their younger sisters keep a separate bank account from their husbands.
It’s not difficult to see why reverse mortgages for seniors have become so popular of late.
For starters, most of us are approaching retirement with less money in the bank than we hoped for. This is partially due to the Great Recession eating into our savings, although, if we are honest with ourselves, we probably share part of the blame for not putting more away when we could.
Historically speaking, your financial adviser’s job has always been to help you reach your financial goals. If you wanted to retire, travel or buy that vacation home, you were only to set your goal, and your adviser would tell you how to get there.
These days, marketing a service is about establishing your presence and building trust on the Internet. In the past, you would demonstrate your product to an audience and they decided whether they wanted to purchase or not. Now there is little face-to-face contact as we cross global borders.

Last year, I wrote three articles for Sixty and Me about living a happy retired life, including how retirement takes a lot of us by surprise.
It’s not surprising that downsizing has become a big trend in the United States and other Western countries. After all, we are simply drowning in stuff! How much stuff? Well, according to the LA Times, the average U.S. household contains 300,000 items. 300,000! That’s insane!
There are many ways that retiring overseas can improve your life. It can reduce your cost of living, while improving your overall quality of life. It can surround you with cultural experiences that you would have never have had back home. It can even act as a catalyst for reinvention.
Like most older women, I live a pretty active life. Despite having left my corporate career behind, I am pursuing my passions, managing my own business, helping with my grandkids and exploring the world.

You can’t get to age 60 without making a few mistakes. These range from small missteps, which nibble at us to larger errors, which keep us up at night. Perhaps the most harmful memories are of the times when we have accidentally hurt someone else – or ourselves for that matter!
For most of our lives, we measure ourselves against other people. When we ask ourselves, “was I a good mom?” we are comparing ourselves to all of the other moms in the world.
Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the challenges that are presented by everyday life? Do you feel like finding happiness is a distant goal? You’re not alone!
