Dating Over 40: Socialites Meet on Match

Don’t tell me that there are not quality people on That’s pure hooey.  Here’s proof!

Talking to my friend Lynn, she told me how last weekend she went to a socialite wedding in the Hamptons (Long Island, NY)  Very upper crust.  She said her friend (the previously confirmed bachelor of 56) was marrying this woman who was a third generation socialite (whatever that means) It was a big sha-bang.  Brooke Shields was the maid of honor – although I have no names or details about the wedded couple. (If you know the scuttlebutt – please fill me in)

So here’s how it went down.  The Match connection story. (These aren’t the real names since I don’t know them)

Muffy saw Biff’s profile and wrote to him, saying that she thought they had a lot in common.  Biff, being the guy he is, ignored her first email.  Time goes by.  Muffy emails and meets many other fellows. Three months later, she stumbles across Biff’s profile again.  She re-reads it, thinks about it, says what the heck and emails him again.

This time, (who knows why) Biff responds.  Connection made – they meet, date and last weekend got married

Stop whining that there are no good men online. Just think how tough Muffy’s criteria must have been for Mr. Right, her being a socialite and all.  If Muffy could find a quality guy on Match – I gotta believe you can too.  They are out there, so don’t give up.  By the way, it was Muffy’s first marriage at 40.
