The one common element to all of these extraordinary recoveries was the person's positive state of mind, whereby nothing was going to get in their way or prevent them from returning to their previous lifestyles; which enabled them to pursue all of their goals, some of them even bigger and better than before.
Some time ago I wrote a blog concerning sex and menopause. Comments in response to that blog ran the gamut. Some women expressed frustration with their bodies. Some felt betrayed by their husbands or partners now that their physical appearance had changed. And still others were blissfully happy that they had ended (by choice) their own sexual chapter and were looking forward to using their energy in other areas such as work, family and friends.
The reason I'm such a strong advocate for online dating is because I know it's the easiest place to meet single men over 50. The problem is, no one gives you the rules for being successful with it. In fact, I've found three common mistakes women over 50 consistently make that end up totally frustrating them in their search for Mr. Right. It's time to change that.
Yoga teachers like to talk. Not all but some of them tend to go on and on about their rent, boyfriends, etc....happy, I suspect, to have a captive audience. The thing is, almost all of them are under 40, and when they talk about the many benefits of yoga, none of the ones I've taken classes with are talking from the perspective of being over 50.
There are some days where being single is really hard. February 14 happens to be one of them. You can't help but pass colorful storefront windows loaded with Valentine's Day ideas and gifts. You find your email box loaded with Restaurant.com and Groupon offers to wine and dine you and the sweetheart you wish you had. Everywhere you look it seems like couples are holding hands and kissing.
Back when you were in your teens or early 20s, you probably didn't date all that much. In an environment like high school or college, you were surrounded by men and women who were single and young just like you were. When you found someone, you hung out and really got to know each other before you fell in love and chose to marry.
