Spring Weddings

I recently was asked do an  editorial  for a wedding feature in a magazine.  On saying that, do single people look at wedding articles and why would they be interested? Perhaps hopefully for the future... when that special days arrives.  I thought that I would write a survival guide of what to do it you are on your own.

Bristol Interview

Last month I was invited along to BBC Bristol Radio to talk about dating for the mature! I spoke about clients in their 60’s, 70’s and early 80’s who just cannot face the fact that they are alone. It was about lonely, more mature people in later years, their experiences and their expectations! One programme [...]

The ‘Apprentice’ – and dating!

Anyone who watched this week’s episode of “The Apprentice” and who has tried to meet someone through an agency, will have been amused at the candidates’ (mostly in their 20’s) bungling attempts to set up an online dating website. One of the groups decided to target the ‘50 plus’ group. After interviewing a small collection of more mature people the group concluded that people of that age would find it very difficult to meet potential partners The promotional film that they made was cringeworthy in the extreme with frail, elderly looking people and all the women wearing lilac. We have people of all ages on our books. Many of our members are well over 50. They do not feel frail and elderly. Most of them lead busy and active lives. Activities include running marathons, sailing and adventure holidays. We are frequently amazed at how young many of our over 50 members look.
