  • Who cares what others think. As long as you are HAPPY thats all that really matters. I dont think anything of your question as long as you are Happy and in Love. GO FOR IT!

  • I'm almost your age and just hooked up with a guy from my high school who recently asked me to marry him. It can happen

  • I think the chances are pretty good. Lots of people are getting divorced after the kids leave the nest. In my dad's case, my mom died of cancer. He is now back in the dating game (he's a very young 74) and is dating a woman who is 60.

  • It does happen. Why do people think 60 is sooooo old. It is all relative. The older you get, the older OLD gets. My husband will be 60 in 4 yrs. There was a lady we attended church with some years ago. She had been a widow for many years. When her youngest gradusted from college she went. She was 62. At the graduation..she met the father of a friewnd of her childs..a widower. They got married a year later and stayed married until she passed away in her sleep 2 yrs ago. Love is Love.

  • Before turning 60 myself I use to think that there wouldn't be a chance in hell anyone over 60 would wind up getting married, but I was wrong, I have two friends who after 30 some years of marriage got divorced and got remarried!

  • My aunt was 76, I believe, when she married a longtime friend. He was 80. My uncle had been gone several years and George was a widower. They acted like a couple of kids getting married. It's mostly companionship when you get older. You need someone you can talk to, someone that holds the same values that you do. Someone that knows how to listen. Someone that lets you be you. And, someone that can drive after dark (funny).

  • The better question would be WHY? I could see being in a relationship but marriage ....
