When you were younger early marriage and settling down with a partner from your own, or a nearby community, was probably accepted, but nowadays the ‘rules of engagement’ have changed remarkably.
Life seems to be much more complex and there are many more choices for you in finding a new partner in life.
The Internet has had a major influence on the way we are meeting new friends and socialising with older ones.
It enables us to connect with people online rather than having to arrange a face to face meeting, or make an expensive long distance telephone call.

The divorce rate among the over-60s has increased significantly in recent years compared to all other age groups.

Helene Pascal's chronicle of her experiences of the dating world shines by its insights and humour as she relates her quest to find a partner in her sixties through the personal pages in national newspapers.
This account of her various attempts to find a good mate with whom to “talk, share, laugh and do things” is totally compelling and will resonate with many single mature women who, for diverse reasons find themselves on their own later in life, wish to share the many years ahead with a good man, and know they still have a lot to give.
