  1. I am finding it so difficult to date in my 60s. I still work full time, most men, or seems the ones I meet, are retired. They want someone who can travel, someone they can see and talk to every day. I just want do that. I work 4 – 9 hour days, and have a very stressful job where I have to deal with people all day. When I come home, I need some quiet time. Since I get up at 5:30, it’s necessary for me to go to bed pretty early. I recently tried dating a very nice guy in the 55+ community I live in, whom I was interested in, but it was like he couldn’t wait til I got home and wanted my attention. I realize what a compliment that is, but I come home exhausted, everyone who works where I do says the same thing. Some nice texting or short phone conversation would be great, or bring me dinner, stay a bit, then leave, would be great too. But then he also wants to go out every night of the weekend. I can’t do that either. I have laundry to do, a place to clean, some family activities…..church on Sunday, am I just asking for too much? I think there should be balance. Of course I would love to meet the man of my dreams, but don’t we need to take it a bit slow at first, get to know each other, have some fun? I think this is more because he sits home all day every day, except for golf, so he has nothing else to do. I can’t help that I’m not in a position to retire and won’t be for several years yet. HELP!

    1. with your…I think understanding matters the most in your relationship. This is peculiar to non regular communication. I believe if you both want your relationship to be fruitful, you can always talk things out to the benefit of yourselves. Generally, there are usually ups and down , misunderstandings, argument in a relationship but what makes you matured is the way you choose to handle it.
