August 18th is the FIFTH anniversary of her son’s death. Talking about David is Susan’s way of keeping him close and very much a part of her life.

Susan opens up about the importance of conversation and verbal exchange in relationships over 50.  Not just the obvious, but talking about finances, friendships, likes and dislikes and even in the bedroom.  Dating after 50 does not need to be defined by texts and emails - in fact, she believes it is most successful when the lost art of communication is used.  Say what you mean and say what you want.
