I'm 62, and the lady I discovered in Church, a rather large Church, was 65.
She made it very clear "no dead batteries" and that she wanted someone "who could keep up with her".
That is, for many individuals a relationship happens like this: you find someone, hookup with him/her, if it’s enjoyable it continues, and after hooking-up for a while, you may start a relationship.
This is quite the change from traditional courtship…I don’t say this to be judgmental, and I recognize that this trajectory cannot be applied to everyone—but still, this is a pattern for some people.
I had dates with girls so beautiful I actually had well-known, athletes, big famous Frat guys, come up to me and ask, "how did you get "Sue" to go out with you, I've been trying for the whole semester to get her to go out". I'd say it holds about 600 people easily, there are always about 25 cars parked her and there all over the lot. I was walking in the Mall the other day and heard some young girls, didn't even have breasts developed yet, and they were talking about guy's butts and how fine they looked.
A variety of physical behaviors occurred during a hookup, ranging from making out to intercourse.
