"Before I discovered The Circle of Love Sisterhood, I was so emotionally exhausted desperate and just done with dating.
I had been doing online dating on my own for 7 years. I was feeling so alone on this journey because all my friends were either with someone, married or had sworn off men completely. I didn't really have anyone to talk to about it and they just couldn't relate to my situation.
After I took a break, I decided to go back on and had started searching for a Dating Coach because I knew I needed help because it was hard out there and I was getting jaded.
That's when I came across The Circle of Love Sisterhood. I was like oh my God, there is a community to support women who are over 50 and dating. This was what I really needed because let's face it, dating is a whole different ball game for us, than it is for younger women.
It was so comforting to be a part of a community, where other women my age were struggling with the same things I was…so, I knew I wasn't alone.
There were challenging times, but I learned so much from having you as my coach. The coaching and getting feedback on each dating situation I was in, really helped me the most. And, all the dating videos that are available really helped me understand men better.
Plus, I had to work through my own stuff, like my fear of allowing someone to get close to me and my barriers to let love into my life.
When I First Met Dave
When I first met Dave, I rebuffed him. But when he wrote again, I realized that he is actually the most emotionally intelligent man, I have ever met.
When we're together, it's just so easy. It’s so nice to have my best friend by my side and not feel so alone in life. He treats me like gold and I always feel like I can totally be myself around him. I never feel like I have to hide anything or be something other than who I am. It's amazing!
In looking back, it’s unbelievable that we actually met, because I was almost ready to give up and so was he. He had settled on being alone forever and I was getting pretty close to that point, too.
If it hadn't have been for The Circle of Love Sisterhood, I would have given up, but I kept going.
If you’re struggling like I was right now, I would just say, keep going even though it’s exhausting. Because if I would have given up or if Dave would have, we would not be experiencing this really amazing relationship that we have right now.
We are both so excited about the future and retiring together in a few years and can’t wait to have that special someone to spend time with and travel. And you know what? I would have missed out on all that with Dave, if I would have given up!
