Part One -Searching for a marriage-minded man This week, an email arrived in my inbox from Barbara, who wrote, “I want to know what is the best online dating website for a woman in her 50’s to meet a marriage-minded male?” Wow, I thought, a senior marriage-minded man.
That is all she wrote, hardly enough information for me to help her—so, I responded, “I cannot say there is a ‘best’ website to meet a marriage-minded male. There is no specific place, of which I am aware, whe
This week, I received an email from Champ Karen in Michigan, saying she had kept a copy of the October 25, 2013, newsletter on her computer home screen. The title: “Rebuilding Trust After Being Dumped Takes Time.” She sent a copy to help me recall it. Karen said, “I thought it was good advice. Has this marriage survived? (I hope so).” I found it amazing that Karen had kept the article on her home screen for three and a half years. And I recalled it vividly. It was about Trent

There are three parts to today’s newsletter.
Part 1 - Marrying the Church Casserole Ladies. Words of advice from seven Champs to Steve, the recent widower from New York State who was featured in last week's eNewsletter.
Kit, “I’ve been a widow for 25 years+. When I was newly widowed, I went on a few dates. I did it more to convince myself that I was dateable. At the time, I had three sons at home, with the youngest being

There are three parts to this week’s newsletter.
Part one – Don’t rush important, life-changing decisions
In 2009, I published “How 50 Couples Found Love After 50.” A number of our Champs are included in that book.
Now, eight years later, I have contemplated doing a follow-up on what became of each couple. But, some of the couples I have lost contact with and a follow-up would be somewhat incomplete at this point.
I do know: several of the couples are
There are three parts to this week’s newsletter. In 2009, I published “How 50 Couples Found Love After 50.” Now, eight years later, I have contemplated doing a follow-up on what became of each couple. But, some of the couples I have lost contact with and a follow-up would be somewhat incomplete. I do know this: Several of the couples are still together, and several are no longer together. In some cases, one of the partners passed away. One Champ featured in the 50 Couples boo

Today's newsletter has 4 parts.
Part one - Like a Rock Like a Rock
I often refer to songs in my newsletters, usually music from the 1950s to 1980s. Sometimes, when a person sends me an email, what they write can trigger the memory of one of those old songs. And that’s usually how a song finds its way into a newsletter.
One of my all-time favorites is “Like a Rock,” which was released in 1986 by Bob Seger. You may recall the song was used in the Chevy
Bouncing Back from spouse leaving
It’s funny how column topics come about. Last week, I shared an email I had received from Champ Jessie in Oregon.
In that email, Jessie was quoted as saying she was single for 15 years before she and Paul found each other. Then she said, “If you ever do a Volume 2 to your “How 50 Couples Found Love After 50 book, I’d be happy to be interviewed, and I’m sure my guy would too.”
That paragraph elicited several responses from Champs offerin
This week, I received four emails that I found interesting. Messages from our Champs make writing these weekly newsletters a pleasure. Our subscriber list, new Champs, keeps growing. Welcome to the newcomers this week.
Email 1 – Love in Oregon
Jessie from Oregon took advantage of the $9.96 offer for the “How 50 Couples Found Love After 50” book. In addition to ordering it, Jessie emailed, “I've been reading your column for years. I'm one of the fortunate ones, I found love
Several times a year, Champs contact me with a variety of questions about long-distance relationships, such as, “My new boyfriend lives in Oshkosh. I live in Milwaukee. Do you consider this a long-distance relationship?” Or, “Can a long distance relationship be successful? Can it work out?” Those are important questions for the age 50-89 demographic. Long-distance relationships often—not always—are a result of people meeting online. And lots of seniors are doing online dating
These men were changing the guard at the Copenhagen Royal Palace In response to last week’s newsletter that listed the best and worst cities for potentially meeting a mate, in the top 150 USA most populous cities, Emily said, “I have never been anywhere where there are more men than women. Tell me where. Usually single women outnumber single men by lots.”
Champ Terry’s response: “As far as cities to meet possible mates, I would add Avon, Vail, and Aspen in Colorado. It is ea
