More and more people are meeting and loving later in life. Dating in the digital world is a whole different and often baffling experience from what we grew up with. So much is radically different from texting, sexting, ghosting, and not to mention the whole idea of digital trust. It is a whole new world out there, yet so many of our people are navigating it, finding love and coupling later in life. “How They Met” is a series dedicated to illuminating their stories.
When did you meet?
We first met casually in 2002. Then we re-met in 2007 at an event held by the same friend who originally fixed us up. Something clicked. Timing is everything.
Where did you meet?
We met because a mutual friend fixed us up. We met at her house for lunch.
What were you thinking before you met? Were you looking for someone to be with?
What were your first impressions?
Where/when were you married?
3 1/2 years ago we became Domestic Partners so we officially moved in together even though we had been living together but maintain 2 households.
Is this the sort of person you were expecting to be with?
I am thin-skinned and hurt easily so then I get defensive!
