Funny you should mention Sophia Loren as I was just thinking of her yesterday. She was born in 1934 and is now 75.

How many guys on this board would kick Sophia out of the sack--even at 75--I wonder?
Hmmmmm....anyone?

Assuming, of course, one of us could get her there.

Oh! Wait. In my dreams, she does hang around until I give her permission to leave.

Seriously, if one were to look to date again after being divorced or widowed, wouldn't one look in his or her age group first? Sexual desire asides, isn't compatibility more guaranteed by age? I myself do not see how I would get along with a "young thing". It is unlikely she would be truly loving me, and what could we be talking about? What is in common? Am I among the few on earth who value companionship more than sex?

NW: I fully agree with what youve just posted.
I at 60 would suspect the intentions and motives of a -lets say a 40/45 woman who wanted to start a sentimental relation with me.
And I certainly believe I would be a source of malicious gossip among my friends and acquaintances.
Sexual perks? Given my age .....

Have seen "Harold and Maude" a while back. Extremely bizarre movie.

Me, too. Frank and I have so much in common, due to being essentially in the same generation. He is 6 years younger than me, but still we both remember the Kennedy assassination, pay phones, the Iran hostage crisis, how to operate a sliderule, waiting for hours in gas lines, and so much else that we simply do not share with those who are much younger. I think that if I were dating someone in his 30's, I'd spend half my time explaining these things and the other half explaining why I am more interested in retiring than in training to climb Mt. Everest these days.

Eh...people are different; for me the age doesn't matter much. I have one stipulation however. If he doesn't make me laugh.....adios mi amigo...

I agree with bbbamI, it's not the category, it's the individual person. As far as shared history, I can't remember the last time I even thought about the day Kennedy died, or who killed John Lennon or the first moonwalk, or the day the Wall came down, let alone talked to anyone about it. Some of the most powerful experiences of my life are universal. I likely have more in common with any father of any age from anywhere than I have with a man without children. Likewise, some more particular experiences that affected me deeply were in other cultures, under a diffrent set of rules, so I really don't share any of this with anyone else that I might talk to. The greatest commonality that we all share is that we are social beings, and we are born of a woman.

The reason couples exist is that we are more or less mongamous sexually reproducing mammals. Without that, men would likely all be brigands, or dead.

John Lennon (and Kennedy) meant about as much to me as Howdy Doody, so why should shared experience with these things mean much to me?

I can know more about basic compatibility in 5 minutes on a dance floor, or a 10 minute conversation about parenting, or parents, or current affairs than any number of "where were you when" conversations.

Anyhow, I don't think it is healthy to think too much about the past. We live in the present, and we will live in the future, God willing. Occasionally we may want to get smashed and wallow in nostalgia or regret, or whatever the past holds for us, but it isn't a good daily driver.

Ha

Uh oh! I should make my wife laugh more. I joke around here, but I am somber and cranky in real life.
