Not only are there statistically fewer men, but the dynamic of human engagement, and style of personal connection, has changed dramatically since we were dating in our 20’s.
Also, a lifetime of love and loss has made many women distrustful and unwilling to get back into the dating game.

Bette Davis once said that getting old is not for sissies.
Well, many women would argue that the same comment applies to dating after 60.
In some cultures, marriage is recommended or considered to be compulsory before pursuing any sexual activity.
