Some of these interview questions really made me think! It was a great experience to reflect on and articulate what I’m doing and why- I hope you enjoy this interview and visit Unleashing the Cougar, she’s very smart and very honest. Let me know what you think πŸ™‚ Love G xO

(Midlife) Adventures in 21st Century Dating & Mating

True tales over 50 (Love for self, the planet and that tricky teen) – by the infamous and wonderful, G

This is another in my regular series of in-depth and (hopefully) insightful interviews with bloggers who write on the topics of female sexuality, midlife adventures or dating in the modern age. You can find others here, here, here,Β hereΒ and here.

Firstly G, I’d love to know the backstory of your blog – why you started it, when, and what your goals were? Do ideas for topics just come to you or do you carefully prepare? Where does the name of your blog come from and what’s its significance for you?

My blog started as a motivator to write more regularly. I’d kept a couple in the past (one on puppetry, and one on dealing with the loss of my Dad, and whether to…

  1. I love UTC’s interviews and wonderful to read one about you! Long time, no read haha. And post on my part too. Anyway, I am stopping by as I can’t seem to find your contact details? I think I mentioned some time ago that I would be up your way again this year, and well that time is soon approaching within the next five weeks and I hope we can find a time for a coffee! You can find me via m [dot] mignon [at] outlook [dot] com – I think people still write emails that way to avoid spam, not that it’s a big deal to receive spam at that email address. Look forward to hearing from you πŸ™‚ xx

      • And YOU are an awesome interviewee! πŸ™‚
        Sorry I haven’t been by your blog…I’m currently traveling on vacation – to Sedona, if you’ve heard of it. It’s beautiful, Gabrielle.


  3. I love this interview. I’ve read many of your posts but I seem not to have read much about the dating, so that let me see another side of you. I love how comfortable you are, how accepting of yourself. It’s beautiful and inspiring to read about the way you care for and respect yourself and refuse to feel ashamed of aging or of not wanting a “traditional” (I guess I mean monogamous) relationship.

    • Wow, thanks Q, that’s a very valuable comment for me to receive. I can’t say it’s always been easy, but turning 50 and having a great relationship with a smart and instinctive therapist really helped me shed a lot of shame and fear. I was pretty timid in my early twenties- I seem to be a late developer! Better late than never hey? I’m trying to trust my inner voice, who has always known she’s not really a ‘traditional’ type person, as a woman, a mother, an artist, a lover. Hopefully it’s all just going to keep getting better πŸ™πŸΌπŸŒˆβ€
      Thank you for reading & commenting πŸ˜ŠπŸ™πŸΌ

    • Hey thanks for reading & commenting- yeah, she really asked some in depth tough stuff- I could only answer 3 or 4 questions at a time- had to think a lot to try & distill my answers to the essence of what I wanted to say (much harder as a blonde 😘) πŸ˜ŠπŸ™πŸΌ
