That doesn't mean all casual lovers feel emotionally bereft in the wake of a purely physical rendezvous, mind you.Many say they're getting exactly what they want and need.

En español | You made the mistake of asking your adult daughter if that guy she went out with last night was "anything serious." She gave you a nonchalant shrug and smiled.

The next morning (or even that night) come the recriminations: Was it wrong to give that person the sexual green light when you had no intention of rekindling the emotional side of the relationship?

Marilyn, a 57-year-old single colleague of mine, recently reconnected with someone she had worked with many years ago. "No," Marilyn said with a laugh, "it's better than that: I'm in like with him — and that's exactly where I want to be." She further confided that they planned to make their reunions "a regular thing — if four times a year can be called 'regular.' But I think that's about all I really want." Marilyn's casual approach to maintaining a friendship with benefits typifies the mindset of older folks who have reconciled themselves to having "great fun" even if it's "just one of those things." And episodic pleasure-seeking may be more common than you think: In The Normal Bar, a book I wrote last year with Chrisanna Northrup and James Witte, we reported that 61 percent of female survey respondents who had partners fantasized about someone they had met.Many older divorced or widowed men and women are in the same boat. You're probably not desperate enough to stalk your neighbors, or to go looking for friends with benefits in all the wrong places (bars come to mind).They feel protective of their privacy and peace of mind, but they haven't become eunuchs or hermits. But offered a chance to reconnect with someone from your past — dinner with your high school steady, for example — you might just surprise yourself by winding up in bed.Charge.create( amount=1000, currency="usd", description="Example charge", receipt_email="[email protected]", source=token, ) // Set your secret key: remember to change this to your live secret key in production // See your keys here: https://dashboard.stripe.com/account/apikeys \Stripe\Stripe::set Api Key("sk_test_BQokik JOv Bi I2Hl Wg H4olf Q2"); // Token is created using Checkout or Elements!// Get the payment token ID submitted by the form: $token = $_POST['stripe Token']; // Charge the user's card: $charge = \Stripe\Charge::create(array( "amount" =// Set your secret key: remember to change this to your live secret key in production // See your keys here: https://dashboard.stripe.com/account/apikeys Key = "sk_test_BQokik JOv Bi I2Hl Wg H4olf Q2"; // Token is created using Checkout or Elements!Form Value("stripe Token") // Charge the user's card: params := &stripe.
