We have all heard about age being just a number and all that, but it’s not very often you come across stories of nonagenarian’s going on blind dates.
Just a few days ago, Miriam Steiner, 93,and Harold Sharlin, 90 met at a bookstore in D.C. called Poetry and Prose for a blind date.
Their cupid was none other than Sharlin’s daughter who served Steiner in her restaurant.
Sharlin was so proud of his daughter for knowing his ‘type’ and said "My Jenny was so impressed with Miriam's pep and vigor that she said, 'You'd make a great date for my grandfather!'" and quickly set them up.
The couple said they had a great time chatting together at the bookstores.
Steiner said love and companionship at any age is always welcome and is "up there with Medicare and Social Security." We sure know what Jenny saw in the intelligent, warm Miriam Steiner.
It’s stories like this that gives us single folk hope that it can never be too late for love. We’re glad to know that we are never going to miss the bus, because there’s always going to be another one around the corner.
