Today, I want to talk about 3 senior dating mindsets that hold women in their 50s and 60s back. It may be hard to admit it, but, often, we are our own worst enemies when it comes to dating. So, let’s explore this topic together!
A few weeks ago, there was an article in The Wall Street Journal challenging the longstanding belief that men should pay for women on the first date.

How daunting it is to pack for your holiday! It is confusing, tricky and frustrating, but I think I got it right – now, after 6 years.

One of the most important numbers that we need to consider as we build our retirement plans is our life expectancy. After all, our expectations regarding how long we are going to live influence everything…
If you listen to the media, getting ready for life after retirement is all about how much money you can stash away. So, like squirrels, we run around, burying nuts all over the garden, hoping that they will last us through the winter. Then, when we reach retirement (or semi-retirement), we realize that money isn’t everything.

The only thing in life that’s certain is death. Everything else is to the contrary. Now that’s not very comfortable for most of us. We tend to be most comfortable living with the illusion of certainty. I think one of the things that makes…

Oh, the joys of retirement! No bosses or supervisors, no deadlines, no meetings or annual reports! What a luxury to find yourself with endless hours of free time and nobody telling you what to do. I’ve been retired from my full-time career…
The road I live on isn’t paved. It stretches for a mile – a dusty avenue wide enough for two vehicles, and treacherous after a heavy rain.
