I agree with this comment:
from tua07485 d : “Whats up with the word “dating?” Its dated to me. someone should find appropriate substitute to the word. one the goes with the circumstances of the “dater.” The word suggests that dating relationship is very brief and places importance on sex (as evidenced by the suggestive photo up top.) I think for older folks, dating should be referred as companionship; some people use that term. If its simply to explore sexual life, then sexual partner would be the right word.
In case you are wondering, I also have issue with the terms boyfriend and girlfriend. I don’t think I need to explain how I feel about those terms used in reference to relationships between older adults.”
