Dating at any age is awkward, scary and often a pain. True, being in the over-60 group may mean that more people your age are already off the market, however after 20 years as a matchmaker and myself in my mid- 60’s, the mature dating pool isn’t dismal, even if all the apps seem like they are.
Meet Jerry Turner. This Golden Bachelor who is a father of two and grandfather of two, is a “hopeless romantic”. He’s looking for someone to “share the sunset years of life” and has realized that life is just too short to play games and he realizes dating is different than it was 50 years ago. While there is no real matchmaking algorithm with the niche Bachelor spin-off show, he remains positive about his prospects, saying he “has nothing to lose”. Whether he would get married again, he shared “I wouldn’t discount it!”
In reality people over 60 are finding love everyday.
