Matt said he wanted to create a website that is fun and easy to use but also safe - all profiles are checked and vetted before going online.The profiles are only visible to other members and personal email addresses are not shared.He explained to Mail Online: 'The inspiration for the website came from my mum - a very lovely lady in her 60s, who has been single for too long.Early last year she asked me if I could help 'find her knight in shining armour'.The difficulties of owning a home and having to mow the lawn yourself, or pay someone to do it. It’s something I can’t help – that the presence of another man in the house I grew up in just makes me miss my dad again in a very fresh way.Her not feeling like a priority to her own children, although she always has been. As an adult, I’ve loved seeing my mom as a real person instead of my parent, and I feel like I am constantly learning new things about how delightful she is. And while we are on this same thought, why does she start watching TV when I am on the phone? So Lord, is this what it is going to be like forever?

You don’t say anything aside from this man’s age or appearance (is he borrowing money? Is he trying to isolate her from her usual friends or hobbies? Until you have evidence to the contrary, I think you should treat your mother’s new boyfriend as just that: your mother’s new boyfriend, not some grifter with a fixation.

A part of me worries she’s being scammed in some elaborate way, and another part is just reeling. A: I understand the surprise, as it’s an awfully large age gap, but your mother is only in her mid-60s and seems to be in perfect command of her faculties—it’s a little soon to fear “elder abuse,” especially when men in their 60s appear to regularly fall prey to hot thirtysomethings without anyone worrying about their well-being.
