A fairy tale theme is interwoven through the fabric of Coco’s journey during her first foray into internet dating. The narrative is constructed around the personal experiences of Coco, a 50+ naturalised Australian of French background who grew up in Australia, after her arrival in the sixties. Make no mistake, the journey you are about to begin does not guarantee a happy ever after. The challenges this incursion into cyberspace represents for the over fifties age groups cannot be underestimated. Coco wears her heart on her sleeve as she throws herself into the hedonistic playground of Millennials to create awareness of the pitfalls of internet dating, as well as the joys of friendship formations. The images portrayed through the eyes of the prospective suitors are effectively the mirrors through which Coco would prefer to see herself even if she is aware that her looking glass will reflect graphic visions of who she really is. The lessons this chronicle provides for Coco, as a result of the dynamic changes to her identity, are worthy of investigation for the self-awareness exercise they represent for her cohort of daters. You will have the unique opportunity to witness Coco’s mental gymnastics, take a front row seat as she probes into her private philosophical and psychological meanderings that expose her weaknesses, her delights, her doubts, her loneliness, her trials and tribulations. She is a self-professed contradiction, invincible, yet vulnerable at the same time.
