3 of us met through the 50s hub and now meet up in South Wales
Tommy’s angels & Gail Burtonshaw -
I first noticed Geoff when he joined over 50s hub….as part of the Admin I always said hello to new members… I joined the hub purely for friendship….I chatted to many members…Geoffs humour stood out and we connected….both of us just enjoyed the relative safety in chatting in a friendship group….Geoff had been on dating sites and was truly disappointed with how predatory they were…he’d just come out of a 27 year marriage and needed to find himself again…the friendship hub allowed that….he, like myself talked to many different people….friendships blossomed and some ebbed away….I myself wasn’t interested in dating….I wanted someone to talk to…laugh with….we correspond for about 3 months before deciding to meet up for a drink….we lived 240 miles apart but if it’s meant to happen…it invariably will….we meet and before too many dates we realised that we both wanted more than friendship…so without the pressure of a dating site we both felt relaxed and comfortable with friendship….but love is love and if it’s going to happen it will….the conclusion of our story is we are to be married in Barbados on the 9th of February ….16 months after meeting.

I have found so many friends thru’ the 50s hub, they have sent the friend requests to me, not me to them as I don’t send out any, all I have accepted since I’ve interacted thru’ comments with them for quite some time first – most have been my friends now for a year and that is all we are, good dear friends – have had zero problems with any of them – there was only 3 that I refused to accept as had doubts about them, proved to be right since I noticed a week or so later they were deleted by admin – thank you so much for keeping us all safe – blessings to you and all others here in administration, you all do a remarkable job !!
