A few weeks back, I was in the office building restroom washing my hands when a coworker approached me for some chit chat. I politely smiled and listened to my coworker's story.
For the record, this coworker is 78 years old and the sweetest, quietest woman I ever met!
"Jax, I've had a rough week. My girlfriend told me to check out Home Depot for some rough, older men who know how to work a chain saw. I figured what the hell and hopped in the car. I've gone every night this week and all I have to show for it is a pile of screws, pun intended!"
This coworker just went from the sweet, old lady who works with a magnifying glass to a woman on a mission!
You had to be there to completely grasp the naughtiness in her words. Her eyes were shining!
I'm no stranger to older women finding a beau.
My Aunt Tootsie is 98 years old and seeing a "young boy" at the ripe age of 72.
You know you had a blessed life when you call a 72 year old man a "young boy".
Like many of life's adventures, this left me thinking.
Is there ever a point in life when an individual becomes too old to date?
Jax says absolutely not! No matter how old a person is, they still can feel the ping of loneliness. Whether they are seriously going out there to hunt for beefcake or just looking for companionship, men and women of all ages should be "dating".
Unless, of course, they are going to participate in a Facebook relationship with status wars. This actually happened to a couple in their 80s that I know. I swear, it's true!
How old do you think is too old to go on dates?
