My cousin remarried -- just shy (by a month) of age 50 -- about three years ago. We live in different states and don't see each other, but thanks to Facebook, I feel connected and up-to-date on her life. After she met her new love, it was broadcast on Facebook like a classic, modern love story.

Sometimes love takes time ... and we should know. Bill and I met in kindergarten in 1962 and went to school together through high school. We always liked each other, but it wasn't until the ripe age of 53 that our orbits finally aligned and we were together, as it should have been all along!

My bosom, which played a solid supporting role in the long-running dramas of mating and motherhood, is in genteel retirement these days, appearing mainly as visual balance for the ever-swelling regions below my waist. Actually, my boobs, too, seem to be getting bigger and bigger, in inverse proportion to their practical usefulness.

In 1992, I went to Bosnia in the heart of the war with a flack jacket and helmet. I've been through the hollow echoes of 9/11. I've been to Katrina where I warmly opened my arms out to the returning refugees for the Red Cross. A week ago, as Hurricane Sandy thrashed against the windows of my powerless fourth-floor apartment in the West Village, I have never been as afraid as I was -- never.

I've forgiven lots of folks over the years, but I haven't forgotten the reasons why I had to forgive them.

Melanie Young, 57, is big on reunions. "Everyone I know -- whatever age they are -- if they're single, I say 'Go to your reunions!'" That's because 17 years ago, at a high school reunion, Melanie's life changed forever for the better.

How Sex Changes For Men In Midlife

I don't want to be sexual just to satisfy my physical needs any more. There has to be an emotional component now, and a compelling one at that. Rocket rides feel great shooting up into the sky, but nightmarish falling back to earth. It takes too long to heal the wounds of yet another failed relationship, so to behave in a manner my experience has proven will fail, is emotional suicide.
