Let go of control

Hoffman speaks a bit to the power of being a bit less rigid in online dating here. “I’ve worked with women in their fifties, sixties, seventies, and even eighties. They had the experience of their lives once they approached things with flexibility and an openness to the experience,” she says. “Then they were desired again. That’s what I love about dating apps. Even 20 years ago, if a woman was divorced or widowed and over 50, she knew the people she knew and had the hobbies she had. How would she meet somebody? Now there is so much possibility. There are new ways to connect with someone that weren’t available a decade or two ago.”
