Teenage dating 70s
Unreliability and confusion do not have to be a part of your dating-over-50 experience, dating coach Bobbi Palmer told Huff/Post50.
"A lot of people who are dating in their 50s probably haven't dated since they were [in their 20s] -- they're paralyzed, they still have the old vision of themselves and the old vision of the boys they were dating," Palmer said.
For all the positive stories of long lost loves and happily married couples we post on Huff/Post50, we know that many are finding themselves back in the dating game for the first time in years.
While you would think your age would translate into mature dating experiences, many women (and men) find themselves reliving their teen years when it comes to the dating world.
the Sunset Strip was a magnet for rock stars: Bowie, Zeppelin, Iggy Pop, Mott the Hoople, The Who. We really didn’t do much besides go to parties in LA; other than that, Jimmy never took me anywhere amazing. Then there was an incident at the Drake Hotel in Manhattan.
"The right man will totally dig it and the wrong man won't but that's ok." It'll be easier this time around -- now that you know how to date like a grown-up.
See how the relationship unfolds and revisit that list often.
But if not, don't be afraid to start all over again.
My junior high school friend Queenie became friends with Sable and introduced me. I had not yet turned 15 and he wanted to take me to his hotel room. He had hair the color of carrots, no eyebrows, and the whitest skin imaginable. At the time, Sable and her sister Coral were both dating Iggy Pop, spending time at the home of Tony De Fries [then-manager of David Bowie and Iggy] up in Laurel Canyon. We were drinking cocktails and looking at menus when some crazy guy dove over the table and said to David, “You flaming fucking faggot. ” Next thing you know, Stuey’s got the guy pinned down and we’re being escorted out a side door and back into the limo. He focused his famously two-colored eyes on me and said, “Lori, darling, can you come with me? He walked me through his bedroom and into the bathroom, where he dropped his kimono. I saw David many times after that, for the next 10 years, and it was always great. Besides, I had been the last virgin in my high school. Not long after my night with Bowie, I got a call from some guy saying he was Jimmy Page. Led Zeppelin was the biggest rock band in the world. But then, a couple of weeks later, Sable and I were at Iggy’s place where we found out that Led Zeppelin was staying at the Hyatt House. On the way over, Sable said to me, “You keep your hands off Jimmy. We tried to have sex all night, but, at a certain point, he couldn’t get hard anymore. Another time, Mick [had me] on a bathroom floor while Bianca was getting ready for surgery. But you need to understand that I didn’t think of myself as underage. Nobody was afraid of winding up on You Tube or TMZ. You can’t even walk out your door without being photographed. They are the modern-day versions of teenage groupies. I got to hang out with some of the most amazing, most beautiful, most charismatic men in the world.
I grabbed on to [DJ and club co-owner] Rodney Bingenheimer and said I was with him. I had probably kissed boys by that point, but I wasn’t ready for David Bowie. People there were so high all the time -- Quaaludes, heroin, whatever. “Danny’s Song” was playing on the radio and Sable started singing to David: “We ain’t got honey, but I’m so in love with your money...” He laughed so hard. We got to the Beverly Hilton and all went up to Bowie’s enormous suite. He got into the tub, already filled with water, and asked me to wash him. Then he escorted me into the bedroom, gently took off my clothes, and de-virginized me. She was all fucked up in the living room, walking around, fogging up windows and writing, "I want to fuck David." I told him what she was doing and that I felt so bad. In some ways, I was not different than one of the Kardashians. The only difference is that the Internet blows them up in a way that allows them to make a fortune. For me, now, I’m in the fashion business and look back very fondly on those years. I knew it the night after I lost my virginity to David Bowie, when I went to see his concert at Long Beach Arena.
