Fifty First Dates
By Jolie Moore
A romance author joins Tinder to find true love. What could go wrong? •Left an abusive marriage. Check. •Did a heap of therapy. And meditation. And yoga. Check. •Got on Bumble. Got on OKCupid. Got on Tinder. Check. When I moved out, I took only the clothes I could carry, my writing desk, my office chair, and the books on my keeper shelf. Walking out of a two-decade-long marriage was the easy part. Getting my self-esteem back was much harder. Once I healed enough to realize I was okay, I was ready to start dating again. #50firstdates was born. Fifty dates seemed like enough to meet Mr. Right or at least Mr. Right Now. Dating in middle-age was nothing like I thought it was going to be. Follow me on my real-life journey…as I search for my next big love. This is my own Crazy. Beautiful. Love. Story.
