Looking for love in your sixties?

Could you imagine giving up a secure job and taking a leap of faith with a new job? That's exactly what Eithne Buckley did when she set up the dating agency Two Hearts Meet in Cork in 2011.

After opening, the agency soon expanded into Munster and Eithne is now meeting clients from all over Ireland. Since 2011, she has matched several couples from late 20s up to mid 70s and there has even been some Two Hearts Meet babies born to some of the younger couples!

Around this time last year, Eithne matched a couple who had joined her agency looking for a long term relationship.

Nora was 65 and widowed for over ten years, while Sean was 62 and was divorced for three years. (Nora and Sean's names have been changed for privacy reasons). They both had grown-up families and felt that the time was right to share their lives with a loving partner.

Nora had searched the internet for a dating agency in Limerick and found the Two Hearts website, while Sean was looking for a matchmaker in Tipperary.

When Eithne initially emailed Nora with Sean’s profile, she was very interested in meeting him but wondered if he might prefer to meet someone younger than himself. It turned out that Sean did have a preference for someone a few years younger, but when he read the email from Eithne containing Nora’s profile, he quickly changed his mind.

He read about all her hobbies and interests and saw that both of them loved hill walking, golf and travel. As well as that, she enjoyed music and dancing as well as eating out, and to top it all, she had a pet dog and so did he.

Since Eithne matched the pair, they have gone abroad twice together, once to Lanzarote and another time to Lourdes. They love going for Sunday drives and have gone on several walks, meals out, to the theatre, cinema and just relaxed in front of the fire watching ‘The Late Late Show’!

Nora invited him to her daughter’s wedding last summer and was delighted to have a handsome dance partner to show off! They are very happy and delighted they made the decision to join Two Hearts Dating Agency.

So if you are on your own and feel that the time has come to meet someone compatible to share the ups and downs of life with, check out the website or call or text Eithne on 085-7742444 and she will explain how it works and you can decide if this is for you.
