Middle aged relationships dating
However, there’s no doubt these middle age women want, and need physical intimacy.
That’s the way it was in my first marriage,” according to one guy I interviewed.“I never turn it down.”Much to my surprise, when I talked to divorced or widowed men out on the middle age dating scene, I often got a different answer. They said many middle age women out there are surprisingly aggressive about sex and getting into bed early on in the dating process. Author/Gail Sheehey, in her book, (Random House, 2006), reported on the “surge of vitality in women’s sex and love lives after fifty.” On her website, she notes the book “is the story of an intimate revolution taking place under our very noses.”A 2008 study on marriage and divorce done by the American Association of Retired Persons shows, according to an Associated Press story, that “Americans 45 and older are far more open to sex outside of marriage than they were 10 years ago, but they’re engaging in sex less often and with less satisfaction (within their marriages).”What gives?The lack of sex, or the diminished desire to do it, is I feel more a symptom of what’s going on in a relationship than anything else. We have testosterone pumping through our veins and sex just seems to always be on our radar screen.However, my gut feeling is that such a situation is untenable for many.I’ve got to believe most sexless marriages leave at least one partner frustrated.
