Dating is another one of those elements of getting older that carries so much stigma with it.

It’s easier for many of the younger generation to assume that once we hit 60 we stop dating.

But for many over-60s that’s far from the truth.

If you’re looking for love, you’re certainly not alone at 60, 70 or if you’re Martha Stewart, 75!

The TV personality has opened about dating on The Wendy Williams Show, revealing she’s looking for Mr Right at age 75.

The former model and TV icon revealed she likes to date younger men, sharing a hilarious story about a younger man she once dated.

Stewart told Williams her ideal date is 10 years younger than she is.

“I went on a trip to Egypt, and I took this guy with me and I thought he’ll be fun,” she said.

“During the trip I found out he was younger than my daughter!

“He was my boyfriend I didn’t know. I had no idea. He looked older. He had a little grey in his hair. But he was like 34 years old or something and very fun, very fun.”

She had the audience laughing along with her as she recounted the tale.

It’s not the first time Stewart has made headlines for breaking the stigma surrounding older people on a talk show.

    In my opinion and we are entitled to our opinions and that is I couldn’t bear to start all over again. I Love My Life just the way it is free from demands of any kind and FREEDOM to do just as I please. For example if I want to get on a plane and see beauty and history it has made my day. Boring? not in my opinion. I would consider it an insult to my intelligence to have someone fifteen or more years my junior. It is because I do not have stress in my life I do not look 71 a glorious compliment and the envy of many people.
