Mid age dating
Her life is not shutting down with age, she said, but opening up.She did, however, see that the options available to her younger girlfriends were much more plentiful.
She's over 55, has been married, had kids, owns a home, and has been providing for herself for years.
"That is when all the weirdos come out of the woodwork," she said.
I have to admit: as a 25-year-old, the kind of dating the 50-plus ladies I spoke with described is the only dating I have ever known.
Sites like e Harmony and Match, she said, seemed "a little too old" and hard to "get a full sense of who is available.” She enjoyed the control Bumble gave her, and the ability to not be bombarded by messages but to make the first move instead. The variety, though, "can be scary." "When you just get out of a long marriage or a long relationship, it is weird to go out with anybody," Gonzalez told me.
"Though there is still a hope you will meet someone and fall in love, but I am probably never going to meet someone and have what I had before." But that, she said, was also liberating.
