Dating and long term friendships and relationships are the topic for this episode, from The Huffington Post/50, dating expert Joe Seldner shares his deep well of experiences and wisdom. Stick around for this one for sure if you need to be incentivized to connect.
Our Boomers Rock Local guest is the fireball Central Michigan University alum and pride of Allentown, Michigan, Four Pointes own activities director of fun and sunshine Jessie Riley. Every day is something new with Jessie, and being a new mom we are so thrilled to have her on our team as resident gerontology expert.
I was intrigued by Joe Seldners article titled “Dating Advice For Women Over 50: Your Bodies are Just Perfect, and More” so I did some recon and here is what the Huffington Post says about Joe-
“Joe Seldner is proudly over 50 and behaving far too young for his age. He has been a Pulitzer Prize-nominated journalist, an Emmy-nominated producer, creative executive to Tom Hanks, and started and ran a news division of a cable TV company. He has an MBA from Yale and degrees in Journalism and Psychology from Columbia. He raised his two children on his own from very young ages – and they still talk to him”.
Even if only 6% of people over 55 have used Internet dating, as reported by Joe, I can tell you that my mother who is a was a widow, after several years of being alone, had the gumption to get on a dating site and low and behold found herself a heck of a nice guy. They have now been married for two years.
All of that from a person who had a hard time turning the laptop on!
The activities director, Jessie Riley, is one of our best pals at Four Pointes in Grand Haven, Michigan. Jessie is the Middle Living adult in the millennial body, her ability to relate how we age and what we can do to enhance the process is simply priceless. With over twenty different opportunities to make friends and socialize Four Pointes is a friend waiting to happen. When she discusses generalized movement classes you just want to get up and line dance, which by the way I did once while visiting!
