Love Over 50 – Friends First

Last week we started our new YouTube vlog, Love Over 50. We had a lot of fun with just a quick 3-minute intro about us. And, in the spirit of keeping it short, here is this week’s video:

Thank you for watching and also for your questions. We enjoyed receiving questions and feedback about us, and also the process of finding love in midlife.

Feel free to ask away, we aren’t shy.

Until next week…

    You both give me hope! I am not actively looking but available and am terribly intimidated by online dating…never knowing what to say. Tips you gave here make total sense and I appreciate your candor. Keep ’em coming! XO

      Thank you Barbie. There is hope! Online dating (any dating) is a challenge for many of us. I actually hated it, lol. But, I figured I was never going to meet my John by staying home.

  2. Oh, I just love you two!

      I am so excited to see you in person Cindy!! Hopefully you will get to meet John too.

  3. Nice story! Liked watching you guys

  4. Love watching you guys!!

  5. It’s so exciting to hear your voices after reading your words for so long.

    I think ‘just friends’ is a good way to start. My brother recently married his beautiful wife and they met online and initially they took it slow. Another friend of mine online dates and tends to throw herself right in there and then finds it hasn’t worked out. She also dates women, and interestingly she’s found they’re much harder to meet and get to know.

      Thank you dear Wendy!

      I have to say for us, friends first was crucial. But I think that had a lot to do with our age. Thank you for sharing your stories about your brother and friend.
