An elderly couple – Jim Adams and Audrey Coutts – got married after meeting online and falling in love during the pandemic.
The two matched on the dating site Silver Singles back in late 2020, months after the pandemic boomed. Sharing to Oprah Daily, Adams remarked: ‘I came across Audrey on my first go-through on the site. It only took a day to find her. After that, I didn’t need it anymore. I said, ‘Well, I have to meet this person who’s as crazy as I am.’
Silver Singles basically calculates how good of a fit a couple may be, based on their interests. Intriguingly, Adams and Coutts scored a whopping 94 percent on the compatibility meter. Coutts, who divorced over three decades ago, revealed that she had been a member on the site for years but never found anyone she was truly wooed by until she met Adams!
‘We just fit. We clicked. We still don’t know why it wasn’t 100.’, she remarked. Three months after their first date, Adams invited Coutts to move in with him. He then proposed to her in May 2021.
‘It seemed like I’d been living with her for years. I’d be sitting here thinking about something, then she would say it. I would start to say something, and she’d say the same thing almost at the same time.’, Adams shared.
‘We were connected. So what were we waiting for? The only reason it took me so long to propose was I had to find the ring, and that took two months.’, he continued.
The two married on September 25th 2021. ‘We live on a quiet street, and we have a quiet life. We can spend days on end doing very little and when it’s raining, we don’t even need to go out. I paint, I’ll rub Audrey’s feet, and go back and paint some more.’, Adams added.
