Sexually active seniors dating
Rae Padilla Francoeur, age 58, begins a love affair with Jim, age 67. Rae describes the passionate details -- how he touches and controls her body, how her passions smolder, build, and erupt. We're kissing each other like the end of time is on the other side of the door. Like all of us, her love affair doesn't happen in a vacuum.
As graphic as her details are, I'm pleased that she uses language our generation is comfortable with -- penis, vagina -- instead of the edgier language that characterizes most contemporary erotica. We kiss like this for ten or fifteen minutes until suddenly Jim stops it all. Much of the book deals with her other "free fall" -- her relationship with Eli, her partner of many years, who is losing his battle with bipolar disorder.
I’m not ashamed of my age and hiding it seems phony.
When I meet men in person in my daily life, I get a better response because they see the whole me, hear my voice, get a sense of what I’m like, all before they know how old I am, meaning I can be defined by other qualities.
Even if I am within their desired range, I still don’t get much of a response.More unhappy couples are getting divorced when the kids leave the house. We also know that dating online does not mean that you’re not dating men you meet in real life. If you meet a guy through friends, at the market, at a concert, great.
