We’re Daisy and Cosmo. These are not our real names. More in a minute about why we’re using pen names.
The start of our story
We met online when Daisy was 63 and Cosmo was 59.
Here on our site you’ll find our real-life stories, tips, and answers to help you have a better dating experience . . . and find your ideal partner faster.
We write about the over 60 dating experience . . . from both a single 60+ woman’s and a single 60+ man’s perspective . . . a rarity on sites about dating for baby boomers.
By sharing our experiences and what we learned, hopefully you’ll avoid the mistakes we made.
When the two of us were actively dating – before we met each other – we found very little information about dating that we could relate to.
Clearly, the few articles here and there we found had been written by those much younger than 60.
They made prejudiced assumptions about who we were and what we wanted.
They didn’t understand that dating is pretty much the same at any age, while at the same time being somewhat different once you get past 60.
We understand what it’s like to navigate the dating scene over 60.
We’re excited about sharing our stories and lessons learned with you, so that you can sidestep the pitfalls, have better dating experiences, successfully navigate the sometimes stressful world of dating after 60, and find the best partner for you faster.
You’ll find here on this site plenty of tips, real-life stories (with names fictionalized to protect them and us), and dating strategies that will help you.
Like most of you, we’ve had our ups and downs with dating and relationships . . . until we found each other . . . our ideal partner.
Coincidentally, we discovered that we lived across the street from each other . . . for 7 years.
We’d never met, never even knew about each other, until we connected through a dating site.
You just never know how love will come to you.
Ours is a dating success story. We both knew after the second date that we were right for each other.
But getting there – in particular, knowing what kind of person would be our ideal partner – was fraught with disastrous marriages and relationships, a string of bad first-and-only dates and some hurtful rejections.
We’ve come to understand and truly believe that life can be difficult . . . love should not be.
So, why aren’t we upfront here about our true identities?
We both want to be free to share the specifics – sometimes with intimate details – of our individual dating experiences . . . from both a woman’s and a man’s point of view. Keeping everything anonymous, we can freely talk about the people we’ve dated and had relationships with, while protecting their identities.
To your dating success!
