If you think dating is hard, try doing it at 60

2 Girls 1 Podcast 60+ DATING

The Daily Dot (Licensed)

Boasting and ghosting in the golden years.

There’s no shortage of dating horror stories on social media. But dating in your later years—after a divorce, death, or other major life change—can be especially daunting.

And while apps and services can take the friction out of finding a match, they can also be incredibly overwhelming and often don’t cater to those 60 and older.

That’s where Peggy Wolman steps in. She’s a professional matchmaker with a focus on helping people find love later in life. She and her husband Richard work with clients to navigate the social media norms they may not be used to, as well as set the right expectations and goals for modern dating among the older set.

This week on 2 Girls 1 Podcast, Alli and Jen (actors who perform weird internet content on stage) talk with Peggy and Richard about the challenges and surprises older singles encounter when it’s time to make a Tinder profile, why ghosting isn’t always horrible, and how to navigate gender stereotypes on a first date.
