“Being a single woman over 50 was and is challenging. Finding yourself in the dating arena again after 30 years of marriage was difficult for me. It felt as being thrown into an unknown place, unfamiliar language and completely new dating rules. A well-known life coach sent me an article in the Boston Globe that featured Laurie.
