Patrice, a single woman in her 60s, set up a time to talk with me after a relationship had ended. Their relationship had started out as a friends-with-benefits union. Over time, she found herself falling in love with him and thought the feeling was mutual.
Andrea loved his attention. On weekends, they spent a lot of time at her home watching movies, TV, and even some sporting events. One of the things she loved about him was how open he was about sharing his life with her.
And the chemistry between them was hot. She began thinking maybe he was the one and started dreaming of the day the relationship turned from friends-with-benefits to a long-term, committed relationship. Then out of the blue, both the texts and phone calls stopped. Andrea was beside herself because she had no idea what happened. She tried texting to figure this out, but he never replied.
Andrea was devastated.
What happened to Andrea is common in a friends-with-benefits situation. Thanks to the release of the bonding chemical, Oxytocin, you can stay connected to a man for up to three weeks, whereas a man might stay connected with you for about two hours. Being a friend-with-benefits seems like a good idea. No strings. Lots of fun. But if you find yourself bonding, you need to have a conversation to see if both of you are still on the same relationship.
Always listen to what a man says. Women are usually the biggest losers in a friends-with-benefits relationship because of the bonding that happens every time you physically connect.
And, like Andrea, are usually devastated when a man moves on. What do you think about friends-with-benefits relationships after 60? Have you tried them? Tags Senior Dating Advice.
