When "Love " threw Annie a curve ball and threatened to turn her life into a tailspin at the age of 56 she stepped up to the delicious plate of "dating" and began to hit it out of the park.
After her husband left her, Annie was confused about what went wrong in her 30 year marriage. She soon found out that there were many lonely hearts out there reentering the dating world
Over 8 years she jumped into the online dating pool and came up with some prize catches. She identifies each suitor as a specific ballroom dance depending on their style, personality and the nature of their dating game From the silliness of Mr. Jitterbug, the heartache of Mr. Waltz or the scamming of Mr. Hustle to the exciting and sensual Mr. Ballet, time after time Annie's failed attempts to find her perfect match online. Will it be a new dancer from her new dance card? Maybe Mr. Tango, the narcissist control freak or Mr. Rumba the sexually addicted marathon junkie with a high libido or perhaps Mr. Samba, the unlikely couple that Annie had been swept off her feet once before but had crossed off her dance card.
These and more online dating episodes will take you, as they did Annie, on a wild roller coaster of emotions, outlandish thrills, sprinkled with laughter.
