OH GOD YES

Shame he was a player - and yes I fell for the charms but loved every minute of it and came out without any need for antibiotics or worse



...Yes, I know a few of those. Some of them can be utterly charming and oh so tempting.

The previous two of three posters obviously did/did not mean what they wrote. Sheesh! More BS.

OT: The topic can ONLY be answered by taking a 10 second look into your soul in a mirror. So which is it for you? yes or no? It's a resounding "yes" for me!

Ding. Door no. 3, Ladies! Dong.

One of those forced to wade through the mire of suspicion left by the allegedly contemptible players, wonder if the the last two posts can only serve to sooth the concience of these much-maligned artists. Just a thought.

"allegedly contemptible"? Another Berkleyism from the over-educated?
"Much-maligned"? Wherein falsely did these fair ladies report?
"artists"? There exists more descriptive words for "d1ckhead"

I really wonder why so many people find it hard to just let themselves enjoy the pleasures of romance. Yes, its true that things might not work out in the long run, and one certainly needs to be somewhat careful about who one falls for, but the pleasure of the experience, while on the upswing, is so good that I think it a shame to pass it by. Hedonism in all its aspects will be declining in its availability and practicality to us all as we progress in age, so why not enjoy romance while we can. The failure of a romantic relationship is always painful, but in the end we do usually recover. Where is the benefit of holding romance at bay?

Good News! Of course you can expect a VERY HOT romance after 50, 60, 70... you get it?? It is not in the age, it is in the head and in the heart! My question to you is: Have you ever had a hot romance in your life? The kind that you described in your message? I believe that what you are talking about is that feeling of being "in love with love itself"!! I have been in love for the last 50 some years! The trick is not in "finding" the right person to give her or him that "special love". The trick is in being in love with your life first and then, the right person shows up! I promise! But the problem is (in my humble opinion), that as time goes by, we learn to be "careful" with people; to distrust, to self-protect and to become a bit cynical. We learn to ask: "What is in it for me?". Society teaches us that at "our age" we should not, cannot and must not fall in love like a teen ager. We got to be serious, rational and so on...and on.. Ha! That is exactly the opposite to what to being in love is about! Just go for it! Being in love is always a win-win situation, even when the other person does not appreciate us as we expect,.Who cares! It is so much wonderful to fall in love with who you are when you are in love, than to find faults in others. At the end of the day, everything starts and ends with you anyway! HAVE FUN!! and enjoy! Remember, our lives have an expiration date!

Due to the length of this thread I must admit that I have not read it all so this may be redundant. I can give you an absolute guarantee that hot love and sex are possible after 50. I experienced it for 10 years. We were like teens or young adults in many ways, lots of PDA and frequent sex in many locations throughout the house and away from the house.

That ended, so my question now is “can this happen after 60”? I hope the answer is yes!!

I actually do not have many problems finding women who are interested in me. The problem is that they are usually not the romantic, sentimental type that appeals to me. Perhaps they are extinct?

well thank goodness! I am not the only person out there that believes that hearts that palpitate after 50 are not necessarily indicative of a heart attack.

23 pages of YES. But since I am here I will throw in my Yes too. What a surprise it was to me, that at 52 and the grandmother of 4, I still have romantic and sensual desires abundantly.
OP you mentioned that the women you have been dating seem to lack sentiment and romantic personalities. Do you let then know you are attracked and desirous of them? This can be done without being crude or too forward. Most women wait for the man to make the first move. It is part of our old school training.

Yes, yes.
It's just that my idea of a romance is camping outdoors on a cold starry night, and she wants to go to Vegas and get married after spending a wild night in the casino.

Red hot romance usually doesn't inspire that sort of thing. It inspires you to go out and buy a hot tub (and not for relaxing purposes), spend money on "make-overs" -- that sort of thing. All's I thought about when I've been in "red hot" romances is, well, ya know.



...Well I can tell from experience I've been in a hot tub quite a few times over the last few years and the only thing that was hot was the water temperature.


But a mature romances -- them's the stuff that romance novels and love poetry are inspired by.



...Looking for inspiration *sigh*

I feel the same inside as I did when I was much younger. Nothing has changed. The passion I wanted then, I still want to find today. What's a relationship without ? Why would that ever change?

Absolutely all you have to do is be ready for it. The good thing about dating us over 50's is that we have learned a few things

Absolutely.
There is red hot romance after 50.

I had a long term, loving, 'hot', 'romantic' marriage that ended when my wife passed away due to cancer. Luckily she did not suffer, as it was only 27 days after the diagnosis to her passing away in my arms at Hospice.

During our marriage we learned from each other, taught each other, that two people can love, and continue the romance that started our relationship, regardless of age.

Granted sex techniques may change with time, sex act duration sometimes changes with time, but romance..romance does not change. Circumstances hurt, love does not.

I mourned the passing of my wife and have moved on. I have many fond and loving memories, and remember things that I learned from our life together. That has made my life, what is left of it, better. I thank my wife every day for what she gave me. It has made me a better man and person. I try hard, every day, to pass on things I have learned to our grandchildren.

POF..heh..this is another story.

I have been branded as still 'in mourning', if I talk of my wife in any way. This is discouraging sometimes. I speak to my grandchildren of their mother, especially my daughters youngest, because she does not remember Mommy much, and it is important that she knows her mother. Her mother was a good person, a great mother. Just like her Nanna was as well. Sometimes you can't help but speak of those who have passed. It's natural.

The most important thing I have learned is that it takes two people, trying every day, to make a relationship work. It's easy some days, hard others, but in the end, very worthwhile the effort you put into it.

You get out, what you put in. Never taking for granted what you have.

Yes..romance is alive and well after 50.

Thank you for sharing Pingshooter. I was moved by your story and this is the kind of romance I had in mind when I started this thread. Too many read it as red hot sex. You knew exactly what I meant, and I hope you can find love again.

Don't worry about being labelled as "still in mourning". I find that people that need to apply labels are not worth my time anyways. I meet women who have been divorced 3 times and they wonder what is wrong with me as I have never been married. Seems kind of odd dosen't it?
