So it's not easy, but if it's really important to both of you, and both of you work at it, it can have a good outcome.Question from Lois: What about trips that are only for singles?
And quite a few men want somebody who has had life experience like their own. » Question from Catherine: I'm too busy to actively date.
A teenage daughter, a 60-hour-work week, a full slate of volunteer/local board responsibilities, and a garden that still hasn't been planted. Would love some advice on how to prioritize my love life. PS: Let the garden go — it can come back next year.
You can find an age mate, or you could find someone who really doesn't care about age.
I don't think that all men pick on the basis of age.
So if you really like this guy, at some point you should open up more of your world to him. But I think most of the things that apply to heterosexual relationships have resonance with same-sex relationships.
Question from Fran in San Fran: You don't mention a lot about homosexuals dating. Of course there are some differences, and I would be sensitive to those differences. Join singles groups that do the activities you love.
Question from Stacy: I was thinking of joining a local art group that meets once a week as a way of meeting someone who shares my interests and is active — not the couch potato type. But just remember if it's a small group, it needs to have new people cycling in, or you won't be able to get any chance at meeting somebody important in your life.
Question from Guest: I am 59, and all of the men that I see are interested in younger women.
On the other hand, if you went with a buddy, you could have fun even if there was nobody interesting there.
So if you have a friend who will make any trip interesting no matter what, then give it a shot.
And it's easy to grow apart because you're not sharing day-to-day life.
