Older Lesbians

 Hi All... I was wondering how to get in touch with some of the "older" women in our group. Or women interested in "older" women.

I'm 64, look 44 and act 34... sometimes. I'm retired and have bunches of free time to play. Right now I'm playing at being a jewelry designer and would like to chat with any and all who might be interested.

Life's too short to stand by the sidelines and not get into the game...

Hi!  New at this, I'm 69 years young, living in Anaheim Cal.  Desperately tying to hook up with other lesbians for things to do.  Just not ready for the pasture yet!

Seems like finding older (wiser) lesbians is challenging no matter where one lives.  I thought I was having trouble just because I live in the middle of nowhere.  Good to hear from others having similar concerns.

Glad to see this topic! "older" means absolutely nothing to me.  And you're right, it's just a number, however, don't forget that it's a number that has accumulated a lot of history along the way!  If you take that knowledge that you have gathered along the way, even the negative, and turn it to be positive in your lifetime I believe we'll all be better people for it.

I just turned 55. I was thinking that the other queer person at the library was also around my age then realized that EVERYONE that works there is my age or older! I wonder what the significance of that is? Are librarians an aging population? Hmmmm....

I don't feel any particular age. I do know that I'm much happier with myself and life in general than I was when younger. I have a definite attitude of "take me on my terms or walk away!" I'll extend the same to you.

I don't visit our library much (working, working) but now that you mention it...yeah, the women working there ARE in that older range ("older" being relative- as-in, "older than me" - lol). On the other hand, if I recall back to my youngster-hood, I don't actually recall (or committed to memory) the librarians at all?? Were they younger than 50's? As a kid, everyone was just, "old".

Yah, I have t laugh, just "old" good god, now it seems whatever I'm involved in that I'm the oldest now!

Glad to see some people here who are not thinking 50 is old.  I'm on the cusp of being 70 (in 2 months).  I've joked about there is not much in the way of dating sights for 70 year old lesbians.  I know a librarian and she's only 55 ;)

Well, my friends with whom I am retiring are both older than I. One is 70 and the other is 60. We are planning to move to an urban area sometime in the next 5 years, buy a house, and live with with our whippets. We're thinking maybe Las Vegas, not for the casinos, but for tax reasons, weather, and the fact it's one of the places that's building MORE libraries, rather than closing them down. If anyone has any other suggestions, I'd welcome them. Must be urban, though! And queer-friendly, of course!

As we know, age is relative. There's also age in the mind/actions/physical condition.

Personally, I'm not "ageist". If an older woman floats-my-boat...cool! Of course, that would entail me not working non-stop & being available & trying to find the non-existent places to hang...but I digress...

Kel, your plan sounds good to me. I've been researching Ecuador lately. Cheap to live, stable, easy access to permanent residency (if desired).

FYI

Ecuador, eh? I envy you your courage! I would worry about the political stability of any country in South America or Central America. With Rousseff getting impeached in Brazil and Maduro declaring a state of emergency in Venezuela, things don't seem very stable in that region. I haven't seen anything in the news about Ecuador, though.

Eh, I guess everything can become corrupt? Look at the good ol' USA, for example. Besides, it's not like I can't alter "the plan" (which is to say, no real plan- lol). I traveled a bit before leaving the USA "for good" & now I've met so many people who just up & go it's sort of inspired me to take on that view. I mean, if you're not locked down to a particular job & have no mortgage, then working & living is basically the same anywhere, really.

Naturally, I'd have a good research around & try to get corroboration from legitimate sources prior to such a move. I'd also do a month or more as a visitor so i could poll the local ex-pats.

Ecuador is supposedly fairly stable & offers a decent standard of living. It's a place where a good quality of life can be had for about $1300 per month (that's for everything, including health care). It's becoming a popular retirement area because residency is much easier to obtain than other countries (coff-AU-coff). The recent earthquakes to the north have not plagued the south.

Hi I'm Chris I'm 64 and I agree this is a very difficult site to navigate. In fact this is the furthest I've ever got.
