Seniors Online Dating
Jane H. Fitzgerald


Seniors online searching,
yearning to ban loneliness,
in need of a fresh glow.
So many questions:
Are you kind, sincere,
practical, intelligent?
Do you like long walks,
sunset at the beach
playing with grandchildren,
the theater, museums,
sports, reading,
talking, traveling, texting?
Characteristics that
all pale before
the one big inquiry,
the defining quality
which will set me free:
Do you still drive at night?

Fun! I'm an old lady who still dares the darkness. Over 75 is all I'll admit to.

Brought a smile... My husband and I met online in 2020, at ages 64 and 66. We both still drive at night, but more slowly. :-)

Jane Fitzgerald, you made me laugh out loud. Driving at night has become a big issue. It seriously limits what one is willing to do, like go to a movie or even to a late-in-the-day dinner. Driving back home in the dark can be dangerous. Oh the joys of senior living! You have to be there to know what it's all about.
