I think it's great. She says she doesn't want to date anyone, just chat. She's getting a lot of hits from men my age. So far, most are being very sweet and flattering, but she did have one 80 year old man get a little inappropriate in his email. She shut him down pretty quick.

She will be 79 in November. She is on FB and plays Farmville. She's been very lonely since my dad passed away 6 years ago, so I hope this will help.

I agree with the others regarding money & bank account numbers. I personally know someone who lost $90K. I do highly recommend eHarmony if she decides she wants a real relationship with compatibility. I got married 6 months after meeting my new man! Life is short & unpredictable...live it to the fullest!
