I seem to have way more fun with a younger lady than with middle aged women. Or even women who were younger in the older days. Am I the only one who has experienced this?

That's because our "pieces and parts" worked better back then...

Funny I was just thinking about this on the ride home. Communication seems less authentic today then a few decades ago. Expressing emotions via text doesnít have the impact face to face conversations late night on the porch had.

Add in platforms like Tinder where thereís a hookup waiting to happen every 5 minutes and it takes the thrill out of courting someone.

Relationships just donít seem as genuine as they did in the past..

AIDS kinda sucked, at least until they figured it out.

IME, same old same old. I started dating in the early 70's.

The 80s and 90s certainly had problems and shouldn't be looked at through rose colored glasses but it seemed that there was hope for the future. It seemed like society was working towards something better but these days it feels like we are on the verge of some post apocalyptic hellscape. It feels like things will only get worse. I know this is a bit off topic but dating is certainly a part of it.

Music was generally better during the 80s and 90s, which was nice when dating back then.
