Dating widowers - wonderful

The podcast with Ron Wilson was amazing. Loved every observation/comment Ron made. Such a breath of fresh air, so honest. Gives a women in her 50’s some hope!

Holding hope ,

Episode 17 & 15

What great insight in these two episodes! So refreshing to hear such open & honest conversations from these gentlemen. It has ignited my hope in finding someone with emotionally awareness wrapped in honesty and openness ! I was beginning to believe it was mythical, particularly with another life decade on the horizon.... so thrilled they shared! 💕

So refreshing

Just started listening this week and loving it. Love the topics covered! So many ah ha moments for this single girl in her 40’s. Don’t have a huge network of single friends mostly married friends which has been challenging to say the least. Thank you so much.
