Michael & Ellen
Had a wonderful 32 year long marriage that was 30 years of bliss followed by two years of sheer misery where death became a release from suffering.
After a year of mourning I had a coming out celebration that consisted of alternating between cruises and dating very nice ladies I met on J Date.--almost met Ellen there two years sooner.
Last summer I gave p.o.f. a try.
Experience taught me that the way to respond to the e-mail from P.O.F. that said Ellen was interested in me was to ask her if that message came directly from her, or was computer generated.
We met at a kosher deli in her neighborhood (Ben's) and discovered we had a past.
Ellen had been my daughter's
Sunday school teacher 25 years ago, and all the grownup children in my congregation remembered her and all had the same response:"She was so nice."
So being nice 25 years ago is Ellen's secret to success. Mine is that I am a most happy very lucky fella.
