Reunited on POF after 42 Years Apart

Nothing makes us happier at PlentyOfFish than hearing from our couples whom found one another via our site. John and Grace’s story struck a nerve, after they told us it all began when they shared their first kiss together as teenagers.
Warning – Grab a box of Kleenex for this one.
Grace: In 2015, after 27 years of marriage, I found myself divorced.
Thankfully I had a younger sister who had a place for me to live. I found a job, worked long hours and gained my independence back. Most of my friends were married, so I decided why not give online dating a shot?
At first I just wanted to be nosy and see if

Sharp Uptick

Tis the season! I've noticed a sharp uptick in guys contacting me on the dating sites and apps. If memory serves, I've seen this every year between Thanksgiving and Christmas, then right after the new year.  I don't have much time for dating before the end of the year.  Still recuperating and already have a ton of things on the calendar.

8 Dating Stigmas We Must Break

It’s time to talk about all those rules and negative stigmas attached to dating. Times have changed and thanks to education, raising standards and a whole lot of self-love, we are able to call out the following:
1: Men should make the first move
Depending on what type of personality you have and how much confidence you possess, don’t be afraid to be the one to ask first. Men love a confident woman and making the first move doesn’t signify that you are over keen or over bearing, it just shows that you can take initiative. Whilst you may be more of a traditionalist, make sure you aren’t making the man do

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is tomorrow. All the new age and spiritual information talk about how gratitude increases happiness.  Well, what's there not to be grateful for?  I have food, clothing, and shelter. (I'm betting you do too if you're reading this).  Sure, everyone has areas of their lives where there's room for improvement, but unhappy? No. As general practice though, I should be more grateful year round.  The really good thing about being sick? I'm feeling too sh*tty to care about much.  Black Friday? Who cares.  Guy who keeps blowing up my phone?  Who cares.  Traffic to Thanksgiving dinner?  Who cares, not going.

Under The Weather

I've been under the weather a lot this year.  I usually get sick once, maybe twice a year.  I've been sick four or five times already and the year isn't even over.  I'll take this as a sign that I need to stop cramming things into my schedule and take some me time.  A night of binge watching some show on Netflix and sleeping in is what I need, not another date. I'm going to cancel a date this week (I haven't done it yet) and I cancelled that second date I was supposed to go on over the weekend.  He's been texting me since and I haven't replied.  Yes,

Anything There?

I have a second date coming up.  He seems like a nice guy and I don't think we had much to talk about on our first date.  He's been hounding me to go out again.  I'm going to see if there's anything there?Clarification: This is not a second date with the guy who sent me endless texts and emails confirming our date.  The second date I'm talking about is with someone new.
