My wife and I met when we were both in our early 20s, married a few years later and started building our lives together. My wife fought a two-and-a-half year war against cancer, but in the end it simply overwhelmed her. I thankfully decided the latter and that meant, at least in part, meeting women. In our 50s we carry a lot more baggage, or luggage, or life experience.

I should say up front I feel as good in my 50s as I did in my 30s. Women are incredibly intuitive and in all likelihood have put up with someone like you -- and are not likely to do it again.

I still have a ton of energy, I'm excited about life and I think it's fun to meet new people. Be Honest If you tend to exaggerate your worth in the world, embellish, tell tall tales or generally string a line of B. Here's a fail safe solution: just be honest, it works every time.
