Whether you’re a die-hard Beatles fan or merely a bop-your-head when a tune from the timeless band comes on the radio, everyone can agree that The Late Late Show’s Carpool Karaoke segment with Paul McCartney and James Corden was pure magic.
In this youth-crazed society that we live in, it seems that there is always a new serum or superfood on the market promising a youthful glow and never-ending energy.
Unfortunately, most of these supposed “miracle” products are filled with empty promises that often fall short of delivering.
Friendships develop in all sorts of unexpected ways in this modern, technology-driven world that we live in today.
So, developing a new friendship (or relationship) on an app like Tinder, Match, or eHarmony might not seem that out of the ordinary.
It’s strange to think how much you can learn about a person just from seeing what they purchase at the grocery store.
Making new friends can be a daunting experience at any age, but, I think we can all agree that it is something that becomes harder as we get older.
After all, if you don’t spend your days at work or school, where exactly do you go to meet new people and develop new friendships?
Costco is known for being a one-stop shop if you’re looking to buy household or food items in bulk, not to mention a variety of other miscellaneous items that you never knew you needed (a giant life-sized Teddy bear, vacation packages, custom painted pet portraits – the list goes on and on).
And let’s not forget the free food samples that you can enjoy to help keep your energy up as you wander the never-ending aisles of this warehouse giant.
These days, there’s no shortage of young, beefy male actors gracing the screens at the box office in the latest action films – but what about women in their 60’s?
Now that’s something we don’t see so much – until now!
Women over 60 often experience an unfortunate societal norm – they are made to feel invisible.
Sure, we’ve all heard that 30 is the new 20 or even that 40 is the new 30 – but 60? Rarely is 60 called the new 40.
More commonly, when women reach their 60s (and beyond), our youth-crazed society makes them feel obsolete, unimportant, or irrelevant.
It has been said that if you are sad to see a fashion trend fade out of popularity, just wait a few years and it will likely come back into style.
Which is a sentiment that was perfectly proven by the always stylish Sharon Stone, 60, who was recently seen sporting an iconic look from the 1970’s – bell bottoms!
We all want love in our lives, no matter what age we are! But maintaining healthy relationships – romantic and otherwise – becomes even more important in our 50s, 60s and beyond.
So, how do you put yourself out there and make new connections in the over-50 dating scene?
