Finding love for single seniors is difficult, unless you get lucky and someone enters your life unexpectedly.
Each Friday, I publish a complimentary “On Life and Love after 50” blog. Recently, I featured a letter I felt was unusual. A woman wrote that at age 30, she became engaged to her doctor, whose marriage had recently ended. He was 59.
