I wondered if they were after my money (they'd be very disappointed!) but I assume they usually go for the phony romance story, and my husband is in my profile photo and others, so why would they think I might be interested?
As I said, the only "mutual friend" I have with any of these guys is a lady I don't really know well but does look, I suppose, fairly similar to me - roughly the same age, plump, white hair, a typical "grannyish" look. Maybe there are some men who want more than mothering, they want grandmothering! Very weird indeed.
The one that made me the most dubious was a chap who lived in the UK, seemed to have only women in their 60s and 70s as friends though he claimed to be in his 40s, and his only hobby was, apparently, nudism....
