Dating in your 60s
So I was surprised when I saw an email from POF saying I had a message from him.Feeling a bit ignored and annoyed, I waited a day and a half to read his message: Now you see my point about subtlety.Whether you’ve been dating for a while or you’re re-entering the dating scene after heartache, don’t fear dating after 50.What you’ve lost to Father Time you’ve gained in wisdom and experience. Dating may seem a little scarier now than it did when you were in your twenties, but in many ways nothing has changed.In the '60s as a late teen and in my early 20s I met most of those I dated at dances, I went on Friday and Saturday night around a country dance circuit.Now if I meet men it is mainly as part of a couple and not as singles.
In the meantime I need a lot of help in HOW to date at my age.
So I figured if the date went sour, I could be a tourist and not call the whole outing a failure. X didn’t respond to my suggestion for a couple of days.
I assumed he had back-pocketed me and put me in the “no try zone” of forgotten online matches.
I started thinking about subtlety after a recent exchange with a guy on POF. X in my recent post about being stuck in a back pocket, the zone where a man’s interest diminishes and you are left hanging, wondering if you’ll hear from him again. X lives in New Jersey and I thought I would jump start our 9 month erratic conversation by suggesting that we meet halfway between us – in Philadelphia – for lunch.
Somehow I have never visited Philadelphia – other than passing through on my way somewhere else.
