AGING BABY BOOMER SINGLES

Baby Boomer singles who are content living solo lives reject outdated depictions of sad, lonely, pitiful singledom.

Updated depictions reveal inveterate unattached older boomers are hesitant to disrupt their lives in order to adjust to anyone or anything new. And, staunchly independent singles cherish the freedom to do whatever, whenever - without discussions, negotiations, and compromises.

NOTE
None of the above should be interpreted to mean Baby Boomer singles have given up flirtation and romance. Bring it on ... as long as it's cheery, easygoing, and drama-free.

AGING BABY BOOMERS AND 21st CENTURY 
                    INFIDELITY

As mentioned in the previous post, online dating sites have gained popularity among single Baby Boomers. What about married boomers?

It seems a lot of married boomers 'enjoy fooling around' online, 21st century-style.
Defenders claim: Cyber flirting is harmless fun that does not breach the fidelity-line because there is no physical contact.
Critics claim: Lack of physical contact notwithstanding, the time and emotional investment devoted to cyber flirting adversely affects relationships.

NOTE
As of now, there is no consensus on 21st century infidelity. Baby Boomers do not need consensus. Individually and as couples, we set our own fidelity boundaries. Of course.

AGING BABY BOOMERS AND ONLINE DATING

Online dating sites have gained popularity among single Baby Boomers. The learning curve is doable. (Or, ask a 14-year old for help.)

Experienced online daters tell novices it takes a while to master the art of conveying intelligence, humor, and sex appeal - via cyber chats. It may take a bit longer to unmask the smarmy creeps who hide behind charming veneers.

NOTE
Needless to say, boomers who pursue cyberspace-generated matches must drench ourselves in wisdom and caution. With that in mind, have fun. Quite a few successful relationships have originated from REPUTABLE dating sites.

AGING BABY BOOMERS AND THE INTERNET MIRACLE

Inconceivable to prior generations, Baby Boomers are fortunate to experience the Internet miracle. Numerous boomers delight in using Internet access to find almost anything and anyone.

Let's be blunt: When boomers do make contact with people from our pasts, it can be startling to observe the changes time has wrought. Our former crushes and/or friends look...ummmm...old; a few are downright unrecognizable. Yikes!

NOTE
More blunt news: When repeated gestures to connect are ignored, our mature minds accept that certain people choose not to be found. However, our sensitive hearts probably will feel something - hopefully, only a barely noticeable, momentary twinge. It's not worth more than that.

AGING BABY BOOMERS RECONNECT WITH OLD FRIENDS

Many Baby Boomers claim the older we get, the more difficult it is to build new quality friendships.

Some settle for buddies, but others react to this dilemma by using social media to track down former friends - with the assumption that childhood bonding is an excellent starting point for quality adult relationships. Ideally, when we re-connect, the years of separation melt away and friendships are revived.

Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Sometimes, the years apart have carved a divide too wide to navigate.

NOTE
Quality friendships are rare treasures. Aging boomers are thankful if we are able to grow old with one or two.

AGING BABY BOOMERS REKINDLE LOST LOVE

Are you tempted to track down someone you haven't seen or spoken to in decades? Is that someone a former sweetheart?

Why the temptation?
~ Many Baby Boomers want to reconnect with people who share our histories and are fluent in our life-stories. It seems these boomers would rather update their stories than go through the discovery-phase required for new intimate relationships.

~ For quite a few boomers, getting older has reawakened a dormant yearning for their 'first true love.'

~ Or, maybe, it is simply age-related nostalgia for the good old days.

NOTE
Not all tales of rekindled love are heartwarming. Because, not all who reconnect with past loves are single. Uh-oh!
Do you know Baby Boomers who broke up their current marriages to reunite with former sweethearts?
Would you?

AGING BABY BOOMERS REMEMBER

Baby Boomers' memories of bygone days and bygone lives are evoked by anything or everything or nothing. We see images of long-absent friends and sweethearts, catch glimpses of ancient incidents, and hear echoes of past dialogues. All randomly seep (or occasionally pour) into our minds - uninvited.

For most boomers nostalgia lingers for a while, then fades as we get caught up in our present lives. Usually, but not always. Sometimes, reminiscing motivates action.

NOTE
Are you tempted to locate and, perhaps, rekindle former romances and friendships?
Are you tempted to find former adversaries to resolve disputes and release grudges?
Good Luck.
