Sign up for AARP’s The Daily newsletter covering COVID-19 and more — sent Monday through Friday.
The pandemic has upended dating for singles! When it comes to married couples, coronavirus-related stress has created a pressure cooker inside homes causing problems for even those in rock-solid relationships. Here are some things to consider as we near the one-year anniversary of lockdown.
Is all this togetherness helping or hurting your relationship?
If you’re single, what steps are you taking to find love?
Has your sex life gone stale? How have you tried to heat things up?
Welcome to The Girlfriend Community, a place for women ages 40+ to convene, confab, commiserate and to learn more about the ways life is affecting us right now.
We’ll share real stories and key info about our changing health needs, evolving relationships, work and financial goals, and the latest, hottest trends. Just like a Girlfriend, we talk about everything. Nothing is off limits. So come join the conversation, because everybody needs a Girlfriend.
