Mine is not really a health question, so I hope you don't mind if I ask a mildly embarrassing question concerning dating at the age of 64yrs.

I have not dated anyone for 15 years. Yes...because of an absolutely horrific relationship back then. I have started to talk to a very nice man on a Senior Dating Site. We have talked on the phone numerous times...and I'm feeling quite comfortable with him. He wants to meet me when it's comfortable for me. It will be 5 weeks since we started corresponding and decided we would meet for dinner in the next few weeks. To be totally honest, I'm scared to death! I am not one to sleep with a man until I feel very comfortable with him and the feeling is mutual. That will probably be months down the line anyway... My question is this. What does a woman my age do when it comes to "grooming" your pubic area? I have lost a lot of hair in that area since menopause, and the rest is grey and flattened out! What is a woman to do??? I was young and so pretty when I was in my 50's...but now I feel worse and this question about grooming is quite embarrassing! PLEASE, how do I groom and what do I do? Please be specific! Thank You!!!

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

There are no rules about grooming - you can, or you can go all 70s style! It's all a personal preference and older men tend to veer toward liking a more natural look as that's what they experienced when younger.

If shaving doesn't give you bumps, you can try that. Many women get laser hair removal these days or wax. Some use a personal groomer to lessen the hair but still keep something there.
For now, enjoy dating!
