Rock Your Retirement's host spoke with Beth because of her book, Deserving Desire: Women's Stories of Sexual Evolution.

Kathe loved this paperback book cover!  Although it’s considered a text book she can help the non-academic as well, and I plan to purchase a copy of this book for my kindle.

We live in a youth oriented culture.  How does this affect women and our desire as we age?

Today we interviewed Noel Baker, a retiree who has some advice for us.  It gets better!

It gets better!

Noel grew up in Minnesota and attended college at the University of Minnesota. After college, she worked for about a year before getting married. In 1970 she moved to Colorado with her husband where she spent the next 8 years raising her 2 children and was very involved in politics.

Once she and her husband divorced, she had to gain employment. She worked a few different jobs including work at a bill collecting agency and as a counselor at a detox center for alcoholics. She worked as a Senior Administrative Assistant for KPMG which is an accounting firm for 26 years. The firm decided to downsize in the fall of 2009 and Noel was forced to retire at 64 years old she wasn’t ready for it and like many retirees, became depressed.

Debbie didn’t know anyone in the area other than her daughter. Already feeling like her life had gone full circle but she needed friends, she joined the activities in her 55+ living community, met some fun women her age, and shared happy hours and fun times with them. But other things were missing such as a book club, bunko, and volunteering. Which she had all participated in the Bay Area for the last 35 years.  Enter the world of Meetups!!  She joined a variety of meetup groups including Hiking, Book club, and Random acts of kindness.

In order to survive retirement as a couple, you need to replace that structure, community and purpose, or your relationship may take a hit.

Neither the wife nor the husband is apt to say, “I don’t want to be with you for 24 hours a day”, so have a plan.

Tweet says to volunteer somewhere:  People need you.  Libraries, Schools, Military, etc are all looking for volunteers.  Figure out what you will do, and start doing it.  Also, give your spouse time to volunteer or do what he or she wants as well.  It will help your marriage.

Be with people.  Get to know your neighbors.  If you don’t know anyone, make or buy some food and bring it over.  Become involved in a church. Everyone needs to have friends and to socialize.  It keeps us healthy.
