Resolved Question:

I am a 64 yr. old mother of threeadult children, 30,32,33. None live at home; they each have excellent educations, jobs, and are wonderful moral & ethical adults. They are all nice looking( of course, I'm their mother :##, good conversationalists. They are not overweight, snobs,not smokers, good health. I could go on and on. They have each joined at least 4 dating services each over the last 5 yrs. They have each paid quite a bit of $ joining a dating service #as a last result) for professionals. They have joined clubs, discussion groups, etc. related to their hobbies/interests. My girls tell me that they have met either men who just want to get laid or men who are nice but are NOT interested in getting married. #The girls know enogh not to bring the subject up but if it does come up, that's what they hear.Diff't w/son but cannot find someone. What's up? I'm not saying anything but would love to be a grandma before I die!

Hello, Thank you for using It is interesting that none of them have found the right person through the many outlets you have mentioned here. Perhaps since they are so successful and attractive etc. they have very high standards for a partner? They may consider seeking the brief services of a relationship therapist to help them evaluate their expectations of a partner to see if they are putting their best foot forward in the dating and picking process. It couldn't hurt to try, they have spent money on dating sites so why not, get an expert opinion and advice.
Another option would be to hire a professional 'match maker of sorts' to link them with potential matches.

I hope this answer helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions or if you need further clarification about this answer.
All the best,
