I met my wife on Match.com 19 years ago when I was 53.

Her ad said, “Intelligence is important.” Mine said, “Bugs Bunny is my hero.” My ad also said, “I am not looking for a maid, cook, laundress, dishwasher or sex object. I’m looking for a partner and companion who would be comfortable going to a lecture at Rice, a musical, movie, concert, sporting event, or just staying home and reading a book or cuddling in front of the TV. ”

I still have all of the emails. Being upfront weeds out a lot of mismatched responses.

Here is how it turned out.

Good luck.
