Responding to increasing discomfort with the lack of diversity in studies of intimacy in later life, this article explores the making of couple relationships among White British middle-class women and British Asian working-class women in their ?second phase of life?. We consider what intimacy means for women at this juncture in mid-life and how they traverse the socio-sexual spaces of dating post-divorce. We examine how women?s navigation of dating reproduces wider structures of inequality in intimate life. Talk of compatibility is examined as a veil for the classed and racialised habitus, and deeply implicated in the reproduction of social structures. ?Racial-ethnic? and class inequalities are co-constitutive of the gender and age inequalities stacked against older women?s efforts at repartnering. We therefore contend that repartnering is a matter of concern for intersectional feminism.
