I have been writing about mid-life dating from the man’s perspective for years. Women tell me they appreciate reading a man’s perspective because most people who write about love at mid-life are women. Occasionally, I irritate a woman with something I write and then I hear about it.
Such was the case with Laguna Niguel resident, Silvia.
In the comments section two weeks ago, this ran:
“Margie, age 75, Rancho Santa Margarita: ‘I’ve been divorced 30 years. It took me years to acquire my comfortable home, to realize I’m important and valuable and I will not throw these things away to pick up any man’s dirty socks, cook and watch him click the remote control.’”
