Is there love after 50?

Contributor

I've been trying to make new friends in my area for about three months.  I choose men because I USED to get along so much better with them.  Today, if you see someone for coffee, even if you've made it clear that it's a JUST FRIENDS relationship, they are obsessed with hopping into bed or touching me all over the place.  How rude is that?  I would like to know how to STRESS THE JUST FRIENDS part without being put off and left to rot.  Does that even exist any more?
It seems to me, men are more complicated than they were when I was in my 20's.  They're "dogs" just the same, but, with tons of baggage.  Can someone explain all this to me?
