I never thought that I could possibly fall in love again at such an old age. I’m just over 60 years old, and I haven’t been on a date in 10 years. My husband died of cancer when I was in my early fifties, and I was too devastated to start dating again. It wasn’t my intention to start looking for love, but after visiting a close friend one day, I saw her using the Skout network. She told me that I should start using the network on my own to find someone to talk to. I knew a bit about computers, but I never believed in online dating at all.
I told her that I was fine with being single, and I wasn’t going to participate. She told me that the least I should do is to open an account, and at least look for a friend, so I wouldn’t have to depend solely on her to go out once in a while. I decided to take her up on her offer, and I chose to open up a Skout account. I was surprised to find that there are hundreds of millions of people on the network, so I knew that I should be able to find someone in my age range. I did a specific search for someone in their sixties, and I was only looking for friends, I wasn’t looking for love.
I was surprised to find some people that shared some of the same interests as me, and I was also excited. I put up a picture of myself, and I was able to get some quick responses. Through the Skout network, I was able to find a couple of ladies in my area that we’re looking for someone to play checkers with, and someone to go out with once in a while. I took advantage, and I decided to give my information to the ladies, and now we are all good friends.
I figured since the Skout network was good enough to find a friend, maybe it would be good enough to find me love. Although I said I wanted to be alone, no one really wants to be alone forever. By using the Skout network, I was able to find a man in my age range who was interested in going out. After talking through the Skout network for a while, we finally met in person, and we’ve been dating ever since. I can’t be more thankful for everything that Skout has done for me, and I’m glad I joined the network.
