I had been married for 17 years. After my divorce I tried online dating, but I could never find the perfect one for me. My last partner suddenly died of a heart attack. He was younger than me, so it was a big shock.

current role

Retired former marketing executive and recruitment consultant.

would like to meet

Tall, kind man with good teeth. Preferably he would be a father who loves dogs and is environmentally conscious.

Pre-date nerves?

No, I was excited. I was looking forward to meeting someone new over a lovely meal. I told my friends about the date and they were all supportive. I was wearing a blue floral dress from Aara.

first impressions?

I arrived at the first restaurant and was sitting there when David arrived. He was wearing a blue shirt with multicolored pockets; Later he told me that he bought it specially. He is 79 years old yet still strong and fit. He has good teeth and hands, and he has so much energy.

easy to talk to?

David made me laugh when he asked if I had any prosthetic knees or hips (I don’t!) because he has a lot of friends who have had replacements. David theorizes that his friends consider themselves sick. I share his thoughts on positivity and health.

When David kissed me on the lips, he held me

Neither of us would normally drink at lunchtime, but since it was a special occasion, I had a glass of Veuve Clicquot champagne and David’s had a few beers. We are both dog lovers. I have a miniature Labradoodle named Tilly, while David has a collie cross named Archie.

Stephanie’s Verdict: 9/10

Liked? David made me laugh.

have regret? None, I loved the whole thing.

Coffee or Cab? Coffee.

Embarrassing moment?

No, although we went inside to kiss when we left the restaurant. I would have said ‘mavah mavah’, but David went for a kiss on the lips, which surprised me.

Did the sparks fly?

Yes, in a strange way. David is very funny. He told me I was too tall, so I said he was too short. I am 5ft 11in and David is 5ft 10in. There was a spark and if he comes to visit me in Richmond, London, I will like him.

see him again?

Yes I David offered to take me out for lunch at his home ground.

What do you think he thought of you?

It’s hard to know because he talked about himself so much. We definitely had a fun afternoon. David gave me his business card. The waitress had taken our pictures and she asked me to send some pictures, so she got my number too.

Will your friends like him?

Some of my friends would like David – he’s a likeable guy. There isn’t much to dislike.

David, 79

dating past?

I separated from my wife in 1990. We met on a blind date in the 1960s. Since then, I have had one or two girlfriends.

Some have moved in, but eventually they are fed up. Even though I’m in my 70s, I still work a few hours most mornings, and that includes weekends.

vital statistics

Unmarried for eight years with four eldest sons aged 50, 49, 40 and 35.

Boatyard Director.

would like to meet

Someone who is intelligent (like me) and a good laugh. It would be nice if he also becomes a dog lover.

Pre-date nerves?

No, I don’t like anything. I was ten years old when my mother died and my father sent me to boarding school. I was bullied and it was a horrible experience, but nothing has bothered me since then.

first impressions?

Fairly good. Stephanie is an attractive, tall and beautiful woman. We shook hands and I could tell she was a good kind of girl.

easy to talk to?

Yes very. Stephanie loves restaurants and so do I. She is a mature woman and we bonded with our dogs until we went into previous relationships. Stephanie’s ex-husband had a twin-engine plane, while I had a single-engine plane. I take it mostly in the afternoon.

She has had a good life and also lived in Australia for a few decades. She is in good health – she takes care of herself like me.

I joked about going to one of our hotels later

I appreciate that over the years I’ve gotten past my sale date, but I stay active on the boat with my dog, Archie.

Stephanie does Pilates several times a week. I think she was surprised at how nimble I am.

David’s Verdict: 9/10

Liked? Stephanie is a very attractive woman.

have regret? Not at all.

Coffee or Cab? Coffee.

Embarrassing moment?

I chanted my hand as I mentioned going to a hotel afterward – it was a joke and Stephanie was smart enough to take it that way.

Did the sparks fly?

Oh yes. There is definitely some chemistry. I told her she’s an attractive woman – I can be good with compliments. Since our lunch, we’ve been texting.

see him again?

I love seeing Stephanie again. It was a perfect date. We ended it with a kiss and a hug outside.

What do you think he thought of you?

I don’t know, but I think she was pleasantly surprised. I gave her my business card and asked her to send me pictures we took during lunch.

Will your friends like him?

Yes, Stephanie is an intelligent, beautiful and beautiful woman.
