But psychological factors, especially depression, diminished interest in sex after 40.<br><br>In the United States, two-thirds of men aged 70 or older have a companion who is a potential sex partner, while less than one-third of women do because of women's longer life spans and divorce patterns.<br>* * *<br><br>Over 25 and breathing, call: 1 357-264-8497, ask for "Kate" <br><br><br><br><br>
150 plus were in our class. I've never attended a reunion in Millville, New Jersey. I have forever joked, "I'll attend the 50th reunion when the crowd has "thinned" down."<br><br>2004 will be the occasion of our 50th. The crowd indeed has thinned down more than I would have ever imagined. I have not yet decided whether I will attend. So many dear friends have passed away. Such is life.<br><br>
it be terrible if some people actually called that number and there WAS an old 92 year old lady there named Kate?<br><br>DON'T CALL THAT FAKE NUMBER DUDES !<br><br>You'll give that lady a heart attack. Or maybe make her day! <br><br>
was old hat to you, but you treated it in a special way in sharing it with the world. A very warm part of your heart was exposed to the forum and the populace of web. I bet it was special to most of the women and even some of the men who might have liked to share their own "sweet love story" but couldn't.<br><br>Thanks. <br><br>
