Glen Hellman

What match.com taught an old man about life, love and social media

After 25 years of stable marriage, Glen Hellman found himself single and on the street. Like Rip Van Winkle the world had changed since Glen last explored the world of dating. Laugh, cry and groan to his painful lessons of online dating. Listen o lessons learned by this grumpy old guy about the need to build a digital brand for life, love, and business.
