I've waited a long time for the right woman to tell me I'm special to her, and at a dinner celebrating our first year together a while ago, Sarah looked into my eyes and said, 'You're my guy.' But rather than soak up what should have been a joyful moment, I sat stunned and speechless.

An overwhelming number of people who choose to enter the dating world after age 50 have already lived at least 50 years.

Almost everybody I've come across who's over 50 and was going through their first divorce said adamantly, 'I will never get married again.'

We're the generation that changed the politico-socio-sexual attitudes of the entire free world in the sixties, so smoothing out our dating behavior would seem easy in comparison.

Ask any married woman if she knows any single, eligible older women and she will rattle off any number of names.
