We felt pressured to have sex. That pressure was making it difficult, not only to have sex, but to communicate in other areas of our life. We needed to change something.
My dad came out 14 years ago when I was 21. Since then, my parents have divorced. My mom remarried a few years later while my dad made up for lost time in his gay dating career. Life in our family has been.. interesting.
In 10 years of writing about boomer sex, dating, and relationships, date coaching, and reading thousands of readers' comments the notion that many of my generation are no longer sexual is hysterical nonsense seeking validation. An article like this is okay if it's meant to reinforce the importance of sex, but not okay when if it's meant to paint boomers as sexually dead.
We have all witnessed it, and many of us have experienced it. A person treats you well 80 percent of the time, but 20 percent of the time they treat...
Robin Thicke wasn't lying when he said he would do anything to get his wife back. He proved it at this year's Billboard Music Awards. While Thicke was able to do it publicly, most people don't have an audience to sing for or a stage from which to plead their case.
You see, I've had quite the rom-com ride with love. There's been marriage and divorce. There's been not-so-great guys (thanks early 20s and 30s) and really fantastic guys (thank you mid-30s!).

The fact that I have never barebacked speaks more toward my emotional flaws than some enlightened sexual ethic I possess. If I were a better gay man, I would have had a boyfriend by now who I loved enough to bareback with.
Here are some of the favorite famous quotes about love and soulmates collected and used in weddings over the years.
In today's society, marriage happens when two people (usually a man and a woman) fall in love and decide to spend the rest of their lives together in monogamy. But did you know that wasn't always the case?
We're sitting on a red leather sofa in the lobby of the New York Athletic Club. My dad's wearing a blue and white pinstripe dress shirt, gold cufflinks and a salmon-colored tie. Best wing man ever.
I've made just about every single stupid mistake and placed my foot so far in my mouth during my wife's pregnancies that I'm overqualified to speak to you about things you need to know to avoid getting knocked out by the knocked up.
I'm a smart girl, I figured, and I've been working the steps for years. Now that I am aware of my pattern of self-destructive behavior, surely I will do it differently? I will set bottom lines. I will take contrary action. Turned out, I just made a whole bunch of fresh new mistakes.
