Fascinating article! As some of the replies below are showing, however, I think, it tends to over-generalize. But I think it hits a very good point - Age is "not just a number" for everybody when it comes to relationships.

I found myself especially interested in #3. While I guess it's always good for couples to have some experience in common, in a lot of ways, we Boomers truly came of age in a very different world than many young people, I believe. Not only is that due, in my opinion, to the extensive changes in technology, as the article suggests, but also to changes in society, as a whole (even though we helped to bring about many of those changes, ourselves).

Meanwhile, I notice that some of you have your full name and/or email address in your username. For greater privacy, you may want to change that. If so, just click on your username (above, right) and change your username where shown. (You will have to log out and then log back in again for the change to take full effect.)

Unfortunately, reason #2 is one that Boomer men claim to want, but don't in reality. They like the idea & pc-ness of it, but aren't comfortable with it over the long run.

Hi, I am a 61 year young African American woman and what I notice most often about this site is that you very seldom have African American pictures or comments is there a reason for that?

I just recently stepped away from a situation because it was clear that the man was so emotionally closed that the chances of an open and caring relationship happening were slim to none. Women still want to be courted and pursued, we want to feel valued and welcomed into a man's life.
