Ain’t growing older, growing sexier! You, too, Embrace you!
Bummer, I didn’t think of this topic on my own! However, looking over my previous blog, “Where Are All The Good Men?” I wondered about the topic: finding love after 50.
This blog will be short, sweet and oh, so steamy! Warning to my kids: “Ya might want to look away!” No porn worries… while keeping it real, I’m keeping it clean. But then again, the generation this is meant for grew up accustomed to black&white movies. We can relate to power of suggestion unlike subsequent generations needing blood, guts and genitals splashed across the screen in bold color… For that, no apologies, I offer this instead, find another generation’s blog on sex, dating and love.
As an Ob/Gyn, baby boomer and divorcée, this subject is near and dear to me! So, I’ve combed the internet for its offerings on the subject matter and have inserted numerous links to brief articles for your reading pleasure. I invite you to click on the colored, emboldened text below. Please, do come back to add comments to get a discussion going? Also, as I am an physician, I’ll gladly offer medical insights on sexual dysfunction; medical and therapeutic remedies. After all, we are adults…let’s own this hot topic as generations below us certainly do!
Let’s begin with an excerpt from the Huffington Post Article below:
Step 2 — Rediscover the Art of Flirting Whether you are meeting men online or in the real world, flirting is the best way to get a man’s attention.Online, you can flirt by favoring men. In real life, smile and make eye contact for at least five seconds.Or if you’re on a date, lightly touch his arm.These are all signals that let a man know you’re interested in him.
My friends, mostly female, eventually come around to discussing how to get “back on the block” concerning dating after divorce. This article sums of what I’ve been stating in 5 simple steps that I will not repeat here. If curious, I invite you to check out the pressed article above. It is concise and easy reading.
My only criticism is that I’d edit her last point about 4 magic words men love to hear: “I need your help! “While the damsel in distress model entice some men, many might prefer self-sufficient women! I say feel him out…You’ll not lose asking for his help, studying what he does and/or offering to assist.
I recommend sincerely offering compliments when and where appropriate. Hopefully, it’ll go both ways. After all, who does not like hearing about their strength, genius, physique, talents, etc…?
What do baby boomers know about men over 50? Women discuss themselves all of the time in magazines, talk shows, etc. However, men… keep quiet and don’t generally offer insights in this regard.
Want not… Date! No apologies, explanations or sneaking out the back door needed. You’ve earned the right; your social security card or birth certificate validates you!
I saved the steamiest for last! Do we want/desire/need sex? Hell, yes! Despite meno/mano-pause issues, we grow hotter, sexier and love pleasing partners more than in youth! Women know what they want and aren’t shy about saying it; men are more concerned about quality than quantity. Of course, there are those who defy these general rules!
I’m hoping to generate a discussion and would love baby boomer takes on any or all of the above hot topics. If ya feel me, holler… “C’mon baby, light my fire!”
