Questions You Should Ask Before Engaging in Sex

Photo by Andrew Schwark

Engaging in sexual activity involves mutual consent, communication, and understanding. It's important to have open and honest discussions with your partner to ensure a consensual and comfortable experience. Here are some questions that you and your partner should ask each other:


What are your boundaries and limits regarding sexual activities? Are there any specific acts or behaviors that you are uncomfortable with or want to avoid?

Photo by T Leish

Have you been tested for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and sexually transmitted infections (STIs)? Have you had yourself tested for STDs and STIs? What protection methods, such as condoms or dental dams, will you be using? Years ago, a doctor on a TV talk show said, “If you are having sex, you are participating in a high-risk behavior.”

What contraceptive methods are you using to prevent unintended pregnancies? Are you currently using any form of birth control?

Photo by Klaus Nielsen

Are you at ease discussing desires, preferences, and any concerns or fears? How will we both ensure ongoing communication during the experience?


Are you emotionally ready and willing to engage in sexual activity? Is there a level of trust and connection between us?

Photo by Ron Lach

What type of relationship are you seeking? Are we both in agreement with expectations and intentions?

Remember, these questions are meant to be open and honest. Communicate in a respectful and non-pressure manner. Permission and ongoing talks are key aspects to a healthy and enjoyable sexual happening.♥

How to Let Loose Your Lovemaking Side

Photo by Mikhail Nilov

Discovering and embracing your intimate side is a personal journey that can be unique for each individual. Here are some general suggestions to help you set free your lovemaking side:


Understand your desires, fantasies, and preferences. Reflect on what excites you and what you are curious about. This self-awareness will provide a foundation for exploring your sexual side.

Open and honest communication is crucial, both with you and your partner or partners. Express your desires, boundaries, and interests respectfully. Effective communication can lead to a deeper understanding and connection with your own sexuality and with your partner(s).

Photo by Marina Abrosimova
Educate yourself about lovemaking. Read books, articles, or reputable online resources about sexual health, pleasure, and different aspects of human sexuality. Understanding your body, sexual response, and different sexual practices can help you explore your desires more confidently.


Self-pleasure is a healthy and natural way to explore your sexuality. Experiment with different techniques, fantasies, and types of stimulation that feel pleasurable to you. Pleasing yourself can help you understand your body and what brings you sexual satisfaction.

Photo by Andrea Piacquadio
Consider exploring new experiences or activities that pique your interest. This can include trying new sexual positions, experimenting with different forms of stimulation, or engaging in role-play or BDSM (if consensual and within your comfort zone). Always prioritize consent and ensure that all activities are safe, sensible, and consensual.

Photo by Joshua Mcknight
Taking care of your overall well-being can positively influence your sexual side. This includes getting enough sleep, eating a well-balanced diet, exercising regularly, and managing stress. When you feel good physically and emotionally, it can enhance your sexual experiences.


If you are struggling with sexual issues, concerns, or trauma, consider seeking professional help from a therapist, counselor, or sex educator. They can provide guidance, support, and strategies to help you navigate your sexual journey.


Everyone’s lovemaking journey is unique. There is no right or wrong way. Always feel comfortable with sexual activities and respect your partner's boundaries.♥

Popular Dating Sites for Single Pet Owners by Vivienne Diane Neal

I enjoy the commercial where the man’s date discovers how he keeps his dog food in the refrigerator. This is a no-no in her world. He abruptly shows her the door. What makes it even more hilarious is when he says to his dog. “You were right about her.”


In our household, we always had cats and dogs. But as a child, I never thought of pets being able to like or dislike an individual based on his or her aura.


So, when you are seeking a romantic partner and have pets, you may want to find someone who shares your love for cats, dogs, or both.


Following are five popular dating sites that cater to single pet owners who are looking for likeminded pet owners:


  1. Pet People Meet is designed specifically for dog lovers. It allows users to connect with other dog owners in their area, arrange dog-friendly dates, and share their love for dogs.

  1. Tindog is a dating app for dog owners. It works similarly to Tinder, where you can swipe right or left to indicate your interest in other users. Tindog focuses on creating connections between dog owners and their furry friends.

  1. Date My Pet is an online dating site catering to single pet owners. It allows users to create profiles for themselves and their pets, and search for other pet owners based on their interests and preferences. They also offer video profiles.

  1. Meet Animal Lovers is a dating site that brings together singles with a passion for animals. It caters to pet owners of all kinds and provides a platform to connect with others who understand and appreciate the importance of pets in their lives.

  1. Fetch A Date is an app where you see the pet first before you become involved with the owner. You can create a free profile and find someone who loves your pet and you.

Always apply caution and follow safety guidelines when using online dating sites and apps. Meet in a public place for initial meetings and inform a friend or family member about your plans.

The Best Places for Single Baby Boomers to Retire

Many baby boomers, born from 1946-1964, will find themselves suddenly single in retirement, typically because they are widowed or divorced. Almost a third of men (31%) and more than half of women (55%) are unmarried at age 65 or older, most often due to the death of a spouse, according to Census Bureau data.


When choosing a location to settle down for retirement, you’ll want to consider a variety of factors.


“Cost of living, weather conditions, local community, and access to quality health care are just some of the main factors to consider when it comes to choosing the best spot for your well-deserved retirement years," says Mercedes Zach, travel expert at ASAP Tickets. "This decision is especially important for single senior citizens who are looking to find new hobbies and people to spend their time with as well as cut on daily expenses," she adds.


Single baby boomers might put more emphasis on communities and opt for more populated cities than the traditional beach retirement towns. Here's a look at the 12 cities with the most seniors who are currently single: 

  1. New York
  2. Los Angeles
  3. Chicago
  4. Miami
  5. Philadelphia
  6. Dallas.
  7. Washington, D.C.
  8. Boston
  9. Detroit
  10. Houston
  11. Atlanta
  12. San Francisco

New York - The New York metro area, which includes Newark and Jersey City, is home to more single people age 65 and older than any other city. There are more than 1 million older residents who are currently unmarried. Some 61% of women and 33% of men age 65 and older are single. New York has an unusually high proportion of people who have never married, but many older residents are also widowed or divorced. The biggest downside of retirement in New York is the high housing costs. However, the city's extensive public transportation system can help those who live outside Manhattan to visit new places and meet new people.


Los Angeles - Retirement in Los Angeles brings the excitement of living near the movie industry, prolific sunny weather, and pleasant California temperatures. The area's top-ranked medical centers also draw people to LA. Many people age 65 and older, including 59% of women and 33% of men, are currently single, often due to widowhood or divorce. About 9% of older people in the Los Angeles metro area, which includes Long Beach and Anaheim, have never been married. The high home prices can make it difficult to relocate to the area, but many people find the Mediterranean beaches and big city pleasures to be worth the cost.

Chicago - You will need to bundle up against Chicago's winter chills, but there's still plenty of opportunity to meet new people. Some 58% of women and 33% of men age 65 and older in Chicago are single. Many people in Chicago are unmarried due to the death of a spouse, including 32% of older women and 12% of older men. Divorce is also a common reason to be single at age 65 or older, including 11% of men and 16% of women. About 8% of seniors in Chicago have never been married.


Miami - Retirees are often drawn to Miami's beaches and warm winter climate. There are also plenty of single retirees in Florida. “The No. 1 location that comes to mind when thinking of the most popular retirement destinations in the U.S. is Florida. With its favorable weather conditions and thriving social life, the sunshine state makes the perfect place for a forever home,” says Zach.

In the Miami metro area, which includes Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, 62% of women and 35% of men are unmarried. Many Miami seniors are widows (34%) and widowers (11%), and 19% of women and 14% of men are divorced. Some 8% of people age 65 and older in Miami have never been married.


Many people relocate to Florida for retirement, so you may be able to connect with other people who are new to the area. But if Miami is not your speed, Clearwater, Tampa, and St. Petersburg top Zach’s list of midsized Florida cities for retirees.

Philadelphia - Pennsylvania's largest city can be a great place to meet other retirees. More than half of women (58%) and almost a third of men (33%) age 65 and older are currently single. Some retirees are single due to divorce, including 16% of women and 12% of men. A third of older women and 12% of older men are widows or widowers. About 8% of the retirees in Philadelphia have never been married. You may be able to meet other retirees by volunteering at the area's many historic sites and museums. Located on the train line between New York and Washington, D.C., Philadelphia is considerably more affordable than these larger cities.


Dallas - Rapidly growing cities can be great places to meet new people. “Single boomers are going to be on the younger end of the retiree set and will definitely benefit from retiring to bustling cities with plenty of things to do and plenty of people to meet,” Ann Martin, director of operations at CreditDonkey, says.


Dallas is among the fastest-growing cities in the U.S. and has attracted 145,915 new residents over the past decade. Single women often outnumber single men in older age groups, and in Dallas, the proportion of single women (55%) is twice that of single men (28%) among those age 65 and older. The Dallas metro area, which also includes Fort Worth, has an unusually low proportion of seniors who have never been married (5%). Most older residents are single due to divorce or widowhood.

Washington, D.C. - The nation's capital attracts residents and visitors from throughout the world, many of whom are hoping to make a difference. Retirees may continue to play a role in politics or policy or get involved at the area's historic sites or museums. More than half of older women (57%) and more than a quarter of older men (29%) in Washington, D.C., are single. While 30% of older women have experienced the death of a spouse, only 9% of older men are widowers in the metro area. Due to divorce, 17% of women and 10% of men are single. Some 8% to 9% of seniors in the District of Columbia have never married.


Boston - Boston's many colleges and universities hold many benefits for retirees, including the ability to attend classes and events and take advantage of medical care and scientific research. More than half of women (58%) and 32% of men age 65 and older are not currently married. However, only 10% of women and 8% of men in Boston have never been married. Many older women are widows (31%) or divorced (15%). Smaller proportions of men are divorced (12%) or widowers (10%).


Detroit - Detroit's live music scene provides excellent opportunities for a memorable night out. Many retirees in Detroit are currently single, including 60% of women and 34% of men. About 7% of people age 65 and older have never been married. Older men are often single because they are divorced (13%) or widowers (12%). Over a third (34%) of older women are widows and 18% are divorced.


Houston - Houston is the second-fastest growing city in the U.S. after Phoenix, and it has added 224,751 new residents over the past decade. While many people come to Houston for job opportunities, it can also be an attractive place to retire with an affordable cost of living. “Houston is the best place for single boomers to retire,” Lillian Dodd, lead publisher and travel editor at The Hobby Kraze says. “I recommend Houston because it is a desirable spot to retire. You can live in a large city with a low cost of living. Also, there are various attractive sights, especially for elderly people.” Among people age 65 and older, 54% of women and 29% of men are currently single. Far more women (32%) than men (9%) are single due to the death of a spouse. In addition, 16% of women and 13% of men are divorced. About 5% of seniors in Houston have never been married.

Photo by RDNE Stock project

Atlanta - Atlanta is one of the fastest-growing cities in the South. Among people age 65 and older, 57% of women and 31% of men are currently single. Most older women in Atlanta are single due to widowhood (30%) or divorce (19%). Men age 65 and older are more likely to be divorced (13%) than widowers (11%). Only 5% of men and 6% of women in Atlanta have never been married. “(Atlanta) offers many of the same weather-related advantages as Florida and Arizona for retirees, and the Atlanta metro's huge variety of suburbs means that there's going to be a living situation perfect for anyone, whether they're looking for convenient urban living, natural beauty or a well-established and insular retirement community,” says Ann Martin.

San Francisco - You'll find plenty of single retirees in the City by the Bay. More than half of women (56%) and almost a third of men (32%) age 65 and older in San Francisco are currently single. The San Francisco metro area, which includes Oakland and Berkeley, has an unusually high number of older people who have never married. Single older women are often widows (29%) or divorced (17%). Older men are slightly more likely to be divorced (13%) than widowers (9%). San Francisco's high-paying tech jobs draw many people to the area, but the astronomical housing prices can make it difficult to relocate on a budget.
