Sexo casual ou sem sexo?
Conheço algumas mulheres acima dos 50, da geração dos "baby boomers", que desistiram do sexo. A razão principal é que elas não estão em nenhum relacionamento e não estão interessadas em sexo casual. Apesar de a maioria dessas mulheres ter o desejo de voltar...

Casual Sex or No Sex?
I know a few boomer women who have given up sex. Their primary reason is that they're not in relationships and they're not interested in casual sex. While most of these women would like to become sexual again, they prefer to wait for the...

Too Much Kool-Aid
Robin Korth's article, "My 'Naked' Truth," touched me and countless other readers who felt her pain when her date said perfect bodies had spoiled him, after rejecting hers. I doubt her experience is an isolated one. It brings up an issue unlikely to be...

I recently met with John Gray, best selling author of "Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus," over lunch. His continued passion for his work is palpable. We covered quite a few topics related to sex, dating, and relationships over two hours. But his work regarding ADHD and boomer...

I read the article in Huff/Post 50 today, Why Baby Boomers Aren't Getting Laid Anymore, by Dr. Robert Lusson. http://huff.to/1pjkkrp. I felt compelled to comment after reading his opening statement. "I guess it's called 'hooking up' now. Whatever. The fact is -- irrespective of what you call it...

Sarah and I are nearly halfway through our second year. It's been a unique relationship for me because I've allowed myself to be openhearted and vulnerable. What's also special is that we've become best friends as well as lovers, and while this isn't necessarily rare in...

5 Easy Ways To Scare Off The Person You're Dating

My clients have shared a fair number of first date stories with me. While some are amusing, others reflect a surprising lack of social skills. Maybe it's time to rethink boomer dating, especially if you're a newbie.

Leave Your Libido Home On First Dates

(1) Comments | Posted February 6, 2014 | 5:04 AM

Most boomer guys realize that pressuring a boomer woman for first date sex is inappropriate, but the number of complaints from women indicates some guys didn't get the memo.

Sexually fueled rocket rides crash and burn, so boomer women reject that mode of relationship transportation. A boomer woman who's...

There are three Bermuda Triangles boomer men can get lost in. The first is in the Atlantic Ocean. The second is a crude reference to a part of a woman's anatomy some men insist they routinely get lost in. The third is boomer...

Boomer Women's Dating Faux Pas

(61) Comments | Posted November 25, 2013 | 4:38 AM

My last article encouraged boomer women not to give up dating, and suggested women reconsider if they have. http://goo.gl/9P8MKh. While boomer dating can be emotionally exhausting and disappointing, couples do meet, fall in love, and live happily ever after.

Disclaimer: Since the last article focused on men's dating behavior,...

Boomer Women Who Give Up Dating

Making A Point
It's virtually impossible to express a strong point of view about dating, sex, and relationships without provoking anyone. When I hear a boomer woman say she's given up dating, my knee jerk reaction is to argue against her decision. Giving up dating conflicts with my lifelong...

Who Gets A Second Shot?

(8) Comments | Posted September 4, 2013 | 6:31 AM

Boomers, and particularly those recently out of long-term relationships, frequently find it puzzling to decide whether or not a second date is warranted. A common response from the question, "Are you going out with him or her again?" is typically, "I don't know, I just can't decide." A dating dry...

We all have favorite character actors we love in their typecast roles. James Gandolfini was my all-time favorite gangster because he brought such a wide range of emotions to his character. His face could show joy, sadness, anger and wild-eyed craziness simultaneously. James Gandolfini...

Why Boomer Women Are Perfect For Boomer Men

(1037) Comments | Posted February 7, 2013 | 5:41 AM

What drives men over 50 to pursue women is as primal as social. We'll always be hunters. Over 50 men are able to start second families, albeit with younger women, but not the other way around. My point isn't what's fair or unfair, but rather that many boomer men date...
