1 year of online dating at 50 my daughters dating a black guy
Do that over 5 years, and you’ll sleep with 20 men. I’m only teasing you, Mary, not because I’m not sympathetic, but because it’s impossible for society to move on from its double standards until its enlightened women do the same.

How do you avoid putting “notches on your headboard” while dating, yet still enjoy a satisfying physical, monogamous relationship?
I am a 52 year old attractive woman, and I have been dating online for about 4 years.

The problem is, most people will put their best feet forward in the beginning, and so you start having the physical relationship, then at about the 6 month mark, the red flags start glowing. Thus, your real issue should be figuring out why it’s so tricky to find a keeper, not whether monogamous sex with a six-month boyfriend makes you feel icky.
You may find out his idea a good credit score is being one step ahead of foreclosure or you may meet his family and you realize you aren’t going to be happy listening to the banjo on the front porch. However, based on your text above, it doesn’t seem to me that there’s ANYTHING wrong. And hey, if you’re lucky, it can even happen before the entrée. If you sleep with men you’re seeing for two months, four months, or six months, you’re not a slut. And you need to stop beating yourself up on yourself for racking up numbers. But it’s a shame because there’s nothing wrong with it. After all, you could hypothetically have a series of serious one year relationships for 40 sexually active years, and still end up at the same number. Which doesn’t make you loose, or a slut, or a whore, or any of the things you choose to denigrate yourself. So unless you want to stay with that banjo picker to keep your numbers down, I’m afraid you’re going to have to boff another guy someday. Frankly, I’d guess that not having sex with a six-month boyfriend would feel a helluva lot worse.
