The 50PlusPrime column by Dr. Minor

Beginning in the summer of 2008, Dr. Minor's unique perspective on American culture and relationships appeared in columns on dating, romance and relationships for people over fifty written for the popular website for baby boomers originally called Experience Senior Power. In September 2008 its name was changed to and in late 2013 it re-booted completely. The site's founder and president, Tony Fama asked Dr. Minor to contribute columns to the site along with those of others after reading some of his earlier writings
