Expert Relationship Consulting for Singles Over 50

Tom is willing to share his extensive knowledge of dating and relationships after 50 to clients individually. Often, readers have relationship questions that don’t warrant a visit to a therapist or family counselor, which can be expensive.

Sometimes, a person may just need to bounce a question off of an expert or get a man’s point of view. It might entail a question about how he or she is being treated, or whether the person should stay in a relationship or move on. Tom is an excellent resource to use. He is friendly and easy to talk to. And very, very reasonable. For more information, click on this link.

Tom lives in Dana Point, California with Greta, his partner of 20 years. They met in his deli (Tom founded and owned Tutor and Spunky’s Deli in Dana Point for 26 years) when she ordered a fresh carrot juice and he asked her to dinner. Romance after 50 bloomed before the first sip of carrot juice. Still in love, still happy, in 2018!
