Between Christmas 2015 and the end of 2016, aged 57, I went on dates with 36 different men and chatted to hundreds more.
Dates ranged from seven minutes with a 30-year-old married Romanian web designer and 10 minutes with an American who smelt peculiar, to friendships that persist to this day. One 30-minute date had taken early retirement to retrain.
Instead, we see her spinning around a dance floor, going on dates and then for the obligatory bikini wax when one of those dates gets serious.
For what comes next, you'll have to go and see the film, but this second coming of age will be one that many women will recognise.
Do hang on to your heart and reinforce your skin - unlike poor Gloria.
Failing at marriage felt like mourning – but for the marriage, not the relationship.He said he'd suffered depression and his father had been unsympathetic, so, jokingly, I offered to punch the offending parent.He looked a bit startled, but then asked me to dance. I was so shocked, I ran away and hid behind the band.Greatly to my surprise, he kissed me on the dance floor. Later, he walked me to the Tube, and texted me the next day to invite me out to dinner.I didn't go, I was too shy, but, like Gloria Bell, it woke me up like some kind of superannuated Sleeping Beauty.
