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.

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.

M and J met in August 2010, and are planning to marry next summer (2013). M contacted me with the news and said that despite the fact that they have lots of common interests their paths would not have crossed because they lived about 30 miles apart and their social and work circles just did [...]
