I’ve talked to lots of women over 60 and almost always the biggest fear they share with me is the thought of being alone forever.
In their mind, they’re not sure a man will want them at this age so when a good-looking man starts paying attention to them online, they feel special, desired and wanted.
If you were brought up in the 60’s and 70’s, chances are you were trained to be a strong, independent woman. It’s likely you were taught you didn’t need a man in your life. You thought that anything a man could do, you could probably do even better.
The definition of Ghosting according to Urban Dictionary is, “The act of suddenly ceasing all communication with someone the subject is dating, but no longer wishes to date.”
A better definition is… you and I meet, we have amazing chemistry, we hang out and have awesome sex. I bond to you and then you disappear, ultimately breaking my heart. You don’t answer my calls or texts and I am so confused and concerned.
The senior dating game can be tough. Not only can it bruise your ego, but, it can also bring up all the unhealed rejection that happened earlier in life.
Recently, I received a letter from a woman who told me nothing is working in her dating life. No one is interested in her. No one is interested in her friends either.
They, like her, are experiencing loneliness and a lack of contact with men.
