Part 1 - Two weeks ago, this column featured a story about Clyde and Bonnie, an Orange County, California, couple who met online after Bonnie lowered her age by seven years in her online profile. With her age listed as 62--her true age--she was only attracting "old guys," men she had no interest in dating.
Encouraged by friends who told her she looked far younger than her true age, Bonnie went from being 62 to 55 with a few keystrokes on her computer.
Last autumn, within an hour of her new age appearing on Match.com, Bonnie received an email from Clyde. Her strategy worked, she and Clyde are getting married in July.
