Our members are an elite group. They are intelligent, experienced and witty. They’ve lived life and walked the walk. The average age of subscribers is in their mid 60s. However, many are in their 70s and 80s and many others are in their 50s.

This is not a date matching newsletter; it is strictly for information about senior dating and living life.

There is no cost to subscribe. No obligations whatsoever. Under no circumstances do we share your email address. If you decide the newsletter is not your cup of tea, you can stop receiving it with one click.

One of the benefits of subscribing is your ability to communicate directly with Tom. Ask a question via email and you will get a personal answer from him, not from a staff member or an assistant because he doesn’t have anyone working for me. He does the research, writes the articles, answers the email, and does his own bookkeeping and accounting. Just one idea, or one article, or one suggestion, could save you from being scammed or could lead you to meet a potential mate.

Tom’s Champs are loyal, many have been with Tom for 17 years or more.
