Dating sites catering to bald guys
One day, Rich sent Sherri a message and they decided to go on a date after exchanging emails and talking on the phone for a couple of weeks.
Sherri didn’t realize that it was the dreamy guy from the elevator until they met in person. Their engagement story wasn’t exactly what they had in mind, but just as their chance encounter, it seemed to work out as it was meant to.
They are all 50-something, empty-nesters and divorced. The difference between men and women at this age, however, is that we don’t necessarily want the same things.
“We’re perpetually fed a line that we’re looking for love in a market that doesn’t value us,” says Marina Adshade, an economics professor in Canada and author of . However, with the gray divorce boom, there are a lot more older people available than ever before.

Sherri and Rich got married on Thanksgiving weekend so that guests could arrive a few days early to join for a home cooked Thanksgiving meal.
“Since everyone made a mini-vacation of the wedding, we were able to spend quality time with each of the guests rather than spend the evening rushing around trying to say a quick hello to everyone at the reception,” says Sherri.
About a month and a half before the wedding, Rich and Sherri were relaxing together one beautiful autumn evening and he surprised her with a perfect diamond ring.
Even though they did things “out of order,” and the engagement wasn’t the event they originally envisioned, it was still incredibly special.
Luckily, a mix of fate and online dating would bring them together again!
