Years ago, my stepmother, who was then in her 70s, was planning to come over to our house from Falmouth for Thanksgiving dinner, and she called the day before to ask if it would be all right if she brought a friend — someone she had just met on match.
We said of course, and then looked on in bemusement as she made out with her friend in front of the fireplace after dinner. Back in the day people met the old-fashioned way … through friends, at work, or in bars. But I wondered how seniors, in the age of match. I started by asking a contributing writer for The Times, Abby Remer, if she had any experiences with online dating.
Abby is a youthful 60 years old, blond and attractive. She is from New York and was divorced inand while she was leery of online dating, she decided to give it a try. Abby decided to set some guidelines. She was looking for dates who were thoughtful.
If she was sufficiently interested, things could progress to a cup of coffee. There was the guy who tried to deep-throat kiss her at the end of their coffee date. There were the guys who misrepresented themselves with old pictures, there were the guys who turned out to be married. Abby ended up dating a few guys, but nothing serious came of it. When Abby moved to the Vineyard about three years ago, she resisted online dating until three months ago.
When I talked to her, she had just quit match. Both Sally and Bob are professional Senior dating in Remer in their early 60s. Sally, who lives in Vineyard Haven, had been divorced for many years, and was encouraged to give online dating a chance by her friends — they sat around drinking wine one night, and helped her make a profile on match.
Sally ended up having one date from her match. Sally said she struck up a correspondence with someone named Bob on the North Shore. Bob confirmed that in fact it was the same house, and, like Sally, he said it was one of his favorite places in the world. Long story short, Bob met Sally for a date, and from the minute they looked at each other, they knew it was the real thing. He wanted to be with the grief for a while, but after six months, he decided he would like some companionship. Nelson was 74 at the time, but he convinced her to give it a try, only to find out she had lied about her age.
Nelson drove out to meet a woman in Gloucester who upon meeting him confessed that she had lied about her age — by about 15 years. She said she was in her late 60s, but actually she was in her early 80s.
In the course of his online experience, Nelson met around 20 women. Some relationships lasted over a year, most were one and done. Nelson said that a lot of the women had been dumped by their husbands, and were financially insecure. In his profile he suggested that he was a financially stable 70something-year-old-man, Senior dating in Remer tended to attract some gold diggers.
They were easy to spot. Joanne is an attractive, energetic, and outgoing woman in her 60s who was divorced in She ed eharmony for a year, and admitted to being very picky. Then just as her subscription was about to expire, she saw someone who looked promising: David, a coach and teacher in New York.
It was a nice match, and they began seeing each other for several years. Joanne misses the laughter, conversation, company, and physical contact of a man, and would consider online dating again. One winter a speed dating event was held at the Outerland night club. Like musical chairs, everyone would take turns circulating around the room, and get three minutes to talk with one another.
I was old enough to be their mother.
When she was in her 50s, Missy gave online dating a try, and without much better luck. Having said that, I actually met someone from a website called Plenty of Fish, and it was a disaster. She was married for 20 years, and after her divorce she tried online dating for a while with no success, although she developed several friendships. He was married for 20 years, and was devastated by his divorce. He gave online dating a try when he was in his 60s. Tricia Bennett of Chilmark is a therapist, and when she was in her late 40s, just three days before her membership in match.
Rule No. Which of course is good advice both online and off. Lo and behold, we met online at 47 and 60 years of age! Fifteen years later, we still comment on how lucky we are to have found each other. I could not recommend it more highly. All ages welcome; refreshments will be served. in.
