If you believe that dating in your 60s is impossible, this article is for you. Just because you are getting older doesn’t mean that you can’t find a partner. Growing older is not for the faint-hearted, but that being said, it’s also a privilege many are denied on a daily basis.
Rejection at this ripe time in our lives can really stink. There’s no way around it.

Seeing none of us has been able to travel this year, have you created a travel budget for next year? When you look at it, next year’s travel could be one of the biggest travel experiences you may have, but only if the borders are open…
We’re all feeling a little hemmed in right now; not sure where to turn or how we can plan for the future. For some of us, these may be the retirement years in which we planned to travel extensively; while for those of us who…

I’ve been single for the last 20 years. I got married in 1964, when I was 20 years old. I was married for 18 years (really, 15 years because that is when we separated). And then, after that, I had a relationship with a significant other for 17 years. Doing the math, I was in a relationship for 32 years and single for 45 years.

You’d think that, after 60, we wouldn’t have a reason to compare ourselves with others. After all, we’ve already led full lives, so why aren’t we comfortable in our own skin?
The season of fall stirs up our love-hate relationship with change. After this particular topsy-turvy summer, we’d love to return to some familiar and comfortable routines. But as the days are shorter and the nights are longer, fall reminds us…
