You can only take so much before you throw your hands up in the air and swear off the thing that has caused you so much pain—be it shoes that don’t fit, a job that makes you miserable, or a marriage that has run its course.It isn’t uncommon for women (and men) to swear off being with someone after they’ve been in a long relationship and marriage.Maybe it's because I'm a guy and we're hardwired differently. Sexless In Seattle My dating experience with boomer women suggests that few are fans of casual sex, so it's likely that giving up dating also means giving up sex.Considering the physical and emotional highs associated with sex with a loving partner, this seems an awful lot to surrender.
Who knows what went on behind closed doors that led them to this point.
Making A Point It's virtually impossible to express a strong point of view about dating, sex, and relationships without provoking anyone.
When I hear a boomer woman say she's given up dating, my knee jerk reaction is to argue against her decision.
My goal is for boomer men and women to engage in a dialogue and bridge the gender gap. But it's not men's numerical advantage that generates women's ire. "This is who I am, take it or leave it," refers to several issues, one of which is men showing up for a first date dressed in old shorts, a T-shirt that barely covers their belly, and flip-flops.
We all have to be willing to acknowledge each other's attitudes, and be open to changing behavior that doesn't work. Since I've never shown up for a first date disheveled, and never had a first date with a woman who did either, I'm at a complete loss to understand why any guy might think this is cool.
