Has anybody seen this today?

Where was the survey published?
I vaguely remember something being posted and some people responded but must have missed the fascinating revelations.

bookdreamer Mon 15-Feb-16 14:22:34

I don't know. I haven't seen it anywhere. I've emailed Granset HQ to see if they were aware of the column.

Oops. Wrong one. Here it is

I read it this morning and was amused to see that he was making a fuss about a minority of the people who ,over 55, and who answered the survey did not have sex. The majority who answered did but as usual with statistics he ignored the positives and dwelt on the negatives. He concluded that the minority were having sex with someone other than their life partner and he was pleased. I hope his partner is aware of his glee at the prospect.

Well he's not talking about me that's for sure!!! smile

A bit of a non-news story think! The results are much as one might expect and the fact that trust, compassion, kindness and friendship are high on the factors for staying together is hardly what I would call a revelation.

As to the sex - I firmly believe that few people answer these questions entirely honestly - and why should they? - it is no-one else's business but their own.

I could only read the first page as the rest was all woolly but it seemed to me that this guy was talking complete bollocks.

If he's 43 he'd better make the most of the next 7 years then! grin

And he won't have to deal with the menopause, hot flushes and walking around in a daze, to mention but a few symptoms.hmm.

This is a picture of a tame squirrel that used to visit us each day for nuts. He was called Ringo and would come to us if I whistled him or shouted his name. We miss him.

Anya nailed it for me.
