It's the question that is on the hearts of many. But thankfully it is the focus of several really good books that have come out recently, including Seniors in Love, Dr. Ruth's Sex After 50, Seasoned Romance, and Grandpa Does Grandma.
The answer is definitely yes. And as Arletta says in the wonderful Chapter 10 of Seasoned Romance, "Love is truly lovelier the second time around." It's deeper than mere words to a song.
Sure, there are challenges. Yes, there are even pitfalls. But it's absolutely normal to want romance. Not only is it normal, but it is worth every challenge and pitfall to find love and experience lovemaking again.
Two things this book is not. First, this is not a sex guide, a "how-to-do-it" manual for the elderly. In every bookstore there are shelves full ofguides for those who need help (or a refresher course for those unsure of themselves) if "doin' what comes nacherly" doesn't happen. The fact of sexual activity is recognized in this book, but mostly that recognition deals with mutually achieved attitudes about sexual events;
sexual techniques are absent. Second, this book is not a guide for dealing with the
loss of a loved partner either by death or separation (that is, divorce). We ... are widowed or separated. In no way are the two the same; only the situation in which we find ourselves is common: we are without love and loving partners. And we think we have found or might find someone who might become that loved and loving parter.
I lent a copy to a friend, who said it gave her confidence that it was normal to want romance again. In large-enough-to-read type.
