LYDIA’S STORY: Second chances

My husband and I divorced many years ago. I chose to stay focused on my kids and my job instead of getting into the dating scene. When my youngest son moved out I thought, maybe now’s the time to focus on myself. I was open to dating, but had no idea where to go to meet somebody. My son suggested I give online dating a try. I felt silly at first—I mean, I’m 67, isn’t that for teenagers? I was actually really surprised at how many nice people I met though a dating website for seniors. I had lots of fun chatting with all kinds of different people and making new friends.

Brian, a widower from Woodstock, and I really clicked. We emailed back and forth for about a year before meeting in person. When we got together for coffee it felt like we’d known each other for ages, even though we were meeting for the first time. Would you believe that two years later we’ve bought a house together? It’s wonderful to have someone to look out for me and keep me company…it’s more than I could have hoped for. I’m so glad I took a chance on something different.
