Hattie ‘Retroage’ Wiener has spent near three decades hooking up with men but now she’s ready to ditch the hookups for true love.
The mother and grandmother, 83 divorced whilst she was in her 50’s and since then, has been exploring her options.
Over the past few years, Hattie has been using Tinder for her dates and originally intended to find her soul mate from it.
That didn’t quite work out though, with her dates in fact turning out to be one night stands.
Hattie told Barcroft TV: Now, I was not visualizing myself as just a one-night stand but I ended up that way by default. Because what would happen is, a man would be attracted to me and me to him, and we would meet, have a drink, then if we were interested in each other, more specifically if I was interested in them, then I bring them to the apartment and we’d make love.”
So now she is ready to give up the dating app and find ‘true love’. As long as there 20 years younger than her.
Hattie said: “What I would desire from my life is a partner – one that’s turned on by me, and I’m turned on by him. So I would want a man, I would guess that’s 60.”
She explained that the reason why her dates have never gone further before is that she doesn’t hear back from them after they’ve had a good night.
She also told Barcroft TV that whilst she wants a younger man she knows that “It’s very rare that a young man will pick a much older woman and live with her.”
In her hope to find ‘the one’ Hattie is now ditching Tinder and swapping to more traditional dating websites.
She realises that Tinder has helped her learn a lot about who she is but has admitted that she wants to settle down: “ I can’t just keep saying yes to what I don’t really want, I really want one man.”
Some people are shocked at her decision as she won’t have ‘variety’ but Hattie explained that it is not about that: “Sometimes people say, don’t you want variety? If you only had one man, would that be good enough? I say, it’s not that I need variety, I need frequency, so if you have one man, you always have a dick in bed with you or wherever it’s going to be.
As long as it makes her happy it doesn’t matter.
