Be. Remember man single at 50 apologise
Posted in Best dating
It is not a term that I - nor, I suspect, anyone else not coupled-up in their fifties - is that keen on. It makes us sound like we spend our evenings forlornly signalling to each other across a creaky old dance floor by waving our Zimmer frames, while our hearing aids whistle shrilly. Being over 50 is not old, these days. I know fiftysomething women who are running marathons, starting businesses I even met one recently who had just won her class in an Iron Man contest basically a triathlon on steroids for age But there is a definite demographic shift going on when it comes to our relationships. New figures from the Office For National Statistics show that while the divorce rate continues to fall overall, the trend is not mirrored by the over-fifties. We are now the only group whose divorce rate is actually rising.
