Woman 55 dating poss

I actually didn't think I'd really be actively dating at almost-60.

I assumed I'd have settled into to a nice long-term relationship with a delightful man who was not my husband but offered many of the perks and none of the headaches of a husband. I've always liked dating and never quite grasped the idea of finding a man at a tender young age and staying there for a lifetime. We'd stay together for however long we could and, then, when it stopped working, we'd move on.

There always seemed to be another interesting guy not too far away.

And I (apparently foolishly) assumed it would always be that way. I look a lot younger than my chronological age and this throws men off.

Fernando (above) is advised by a sexologist to address his worry about erection and sustained intercourse with oral sex and mutual masturbation. Single men over fifty-five, many of whom are lonely and afraid of erection failure as they age, are marked targets for twenty-first century snake oil barkers. (Note: We who are over fifty-five shudder to call it “senior dating.” No one wants to get older, let alone become a senior.) This is just the beginning of the dating sites for older Americans.

It’s no surprise that this group is redefining dating and sex to fit their needs. Census figures say of those sixty-five years and older, approximately 60 percent are women and 40 percent men. Here are some of the best online services devoted just to “seniors,” people over fifty-five.

We went out once more and, over dinner, he "playfully" (at first) accused me of pulling a bait-and-switch on him -- meaning pretending to be a lot younger than I actually was. He assumed I was something that I wasn't (a younger woman).

I was about 10 years older than he was and he just couldn't see himself with a 55-year-old. We were having a great time and age, somehow, never came up, although I now know he's 2-3 years older than I am.

One night, when we were out with my best friend and her husband, she asked what my plans were for my upcoming birthday and laughingly commented that she never thought we'd still be so happily celebrating our birthdays at this advanced age. The other couple thought he was kidding but I knew he wasn't. Two days later, he broke up with me, claiming he still wanted the option of having more children. I'm more secure (financially and emotionally), can't surprise anyone with an accidental pregnancy, have built a pretty nice life for myself, and won't be issuing any "marry me or else" ultimatums.
