Someone who will look at you and listen to you and understand you so you're not really alone?I think love when you're older is the same, just everything else is stripped away. Some people were more eager to have a sexual relationship, but touch was something that came up a lot more with people.The people were realistic about it, but they always left the door open.
These daters are dynamic, hopeful and just as nervous as anyone brave enough to put themselves out there -- yes, romantic rejection stings just as much at 75 as it did at 25.
People wanted to be held; they wanted to feel connected to another person physically.
You go through your life being hugged, being kissed and having a physical connection. You could see, afterwards, in those key scenes where they opened up their envelopes to find out who liked them, their fears were palpable.
I just felt like there was a story there, if I could find a way into it.
So I followed people looking for love, because I figured who, at any age, wouldn't understand what that meant?
