By searching through our vast database of eligible Catholic singles, you’re sure to find the perfect match. I didn’t write about it in my Jan Brady diary with the butterflies on the cover when I was 10 years old. Since then, my man-part photo collection is trumped only by my collection of Madame Alexander dolls. He showed up to the restaurant in flip-flops and a T-shirt. And when he gave me that first kiss, I morphed into my 15-year-old self and those butterflies flew free.No one wants a date who goes on and on about themselves before they’ve even gone out together. Yes, you absolutely have to describe yourself, but not down to the last detail. Zoosk member Not Young Still Restless does a great job of summing himself up, saying, “I’m 52, and I still love to go out, exercise, drive my car too fast, and play my rock n’ roll too loud.” It’s all about striking a good balance between not enough information and way too much information.Your dates don’t need to know you won a spelling bee in third grade.

I’d never dated — I got married early because it allowed me to avoid dating — but I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life without a companion.
With most of my demographic coupled and my being past the age of bars loaded with frat boys, it seemed like an app was my only choice.
Seniors often hesitate to try online dating because they don’t feel comfortable on the platform. After living a full life — traveling the world, having a career, raising kids — a small text-box labeled My Story can seem laughably inadequate for singles over 50.
