This has been the craziest day of my FOF life. Starting at 6:30 a.m., producers from Today, Good Morning America, The Early Show, Fox & Friends, and numerous other shows, invited me and my son, Colby, to come on air to talk about Date My Single Kid, a new feature we launched today on FabOverFifty.com. They found out about the idea from an article that ran today in The New York Post.
The premise of DMSK is simple. Many FOF women aren’t embarrassed, afraid or shy about fixing up our single “kids” (Our “kids,” in most cases, are twenty, thirty, even forty something.) Why not act as “agents” for them, I thought. After all, isn’t that what all the dating sites do anyway?
FOF members can post photos of their single kids on DMSK and tell everyone why they’re so fab. FOF moms (or friends, aunts, grand mothers, etc.) do the prep work, connect with each other, and then decide if their “kids” might be compatible. Of course, the kids need to go along with our idea for this to work. By the way, my 31-year-old single son is running DMSK.
Apparently, the idea resonated around the globe. The New York Post story has been picked up by the French newspaper Le Figaro, a morning talk show in the UK wants to do a segment on DMSK, and on and on.
