But there is also a little fear behind the happiness and excitement. One of the biggest attractions of using apps is that they take the pressure off having to ask someone 'out on a date'.
There's no face-to-face rejection, it's all done via a screen where any emotional outpouring can easily be masked with a light-hearted LOL or emoji.
In 2014, I boldly did what most grooms should not dare to attempt - I photographed my own wedding. Let's just say the pressure was immense given that I needed to please my bride and our families in getting great photos of our special day! My challenge as a 70 year old is reeling in a man who still has fire in his belly as opposed to the 'been there, done that, let's watch TV' type.
The challenge doubles because toy boys don't do it for me, and men my age want someone considerably younger.
I make those around me invisible as I look to the distance for the illusive hero of my dreams.
He is to be found in the films and magazines I see. It's easy in relationships to see what we want to see or what is convenient for us, often ignoring clear warning signs or red flags that this person is not good for us and does not have the best intentions at heart. What if I don't always feel like a fairytale princess?

Mrs Brown added: "We've always been a very close family.
When the kids were younger we would go on holidays all over the place."Following six years in the Navy, Mr Brown spent the rest of his years working as a train driver before retiring.
Instead of getting caught up in "couple goals", we need a dose of reality.
