I spoke today with a friend, age 66, who just got engaged to a man who is the love of her life. We talked about the book I’m writing – Finding Lasting Love in Your Sixties.
She said she never thought she would find a man online who would be her match.
“I’m kind of different. I’m more Birkenstock and veggies than heels and martinis.”
But when a friend posted her profile on “Spiritual Singles”, a lovely man who was vegan and into jazz music responded.
Their engagement is the culmination of four years of enjoying getting to know each other.
My friend found someone who is crazy about her and shares her lifestyle including meditation, exercise, music and travel.
We talked about how great love is in this stage of life, when we are not dependent on others to “complete us”. We know what is important to us, and how to enjoy life.
We are looking for a partner to enjoy life with. That is what I found in Marc, my playmate par excellence!
I’m writing this book because I want people to know that it is possible to find a loving partner at this age. There are practices that you can learn to have this go more smoothly. I used these practices to meet my loving husband Marc on Match.com.
Dating in your sixties is not for the faint of heart. But there is a pathway through this.
If this is a challenge you are facing in your life, or you know someone who is facing this challenge — I have time this week to chat about the ideas in my book.
Call me now. I’ll be busier after the book comes out.
