The Uppity Woman's Guide to Dating After Fifty
I was almost fifty years old when I divorced the father of my children. Still cute, I thought all I had to do was pick up the phone, make a few calls to get the word out, and get ready to start dating again.
For some odd reason I forgot I wasn't twenty-something anymore. Dating at fifty was not the same as dating before I married, had children, and figured out the meaning of life.
Over the next five years, I managed to have dinner, coffee, drinks and serious conversations about love, marriage, divorce and loneliness with over fifty men.
In the days to come, I will write a story about the highlights of that experience.
I'm sixty years old today - still single. You fill in the blanks.
Hopefully these stories will help other women (and men) as they make their way through the landmines and disaster areas prevalent in the territory of love and romance after fifty.
