This week at Happen: I’m 55 and never had a girlfriend

Filed under: Advice — posted by Breakup Girl @ 8:38 am

MSN.com, Match.com, HappenMagazine.com: they’re in a healthy and satisfying 3-way relationship. Meaning that you can find MSN/Match.com’s “Ask Lynn” columns –penned by BG’s alter ego — over at Happen now as well.

This week Lynn hears from a Really Late Bloomer, who is only starting to date now at the age of 55 …

I also have never had a girlfriend and have been on only one date in my life. Part of the reason why is because from my teens up to almost age 30, I was very shy around women. As you can imagine, when I thought of asking a girl on a date, I froze with fear. I did overcome my shyness, but by then, I had settled into a lifestyle that I was very comfortable with.

Should he finish filling out his online dating profile, or is it just too late to him? Read the full letter at Happen Magazine, along with Lynn’s wise advice, then come back here and tell us what you think below!


  1. Has all the makings of a reality tv show. Seriously though, is it really necessary to mention his ‘past’ straight away? Didn’t sound like he was a virgin, he just said he hadn’t been in a relationship. You can get away with that can’t you?

  40. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the
    page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I
    love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way
    of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
