Alex Lyngaas really wants to help his mom, Eva, find a partner. So he spent a year secretly filming her and sent it out into the world on Mother’s Day to ask people if they can help.


For people over 50, getting back onto the dating scene can be hard and often scary. If you think all decent guys in their thirties are married or gay, finding single men in their fifties or sixties is like looking for a needle in a haystack. So what did this guy do for his mom? He began looking in a really big haystack – the entire world. He shot, edited and uploaded to YouTube one of the most original dating profiles you’ve ever seen and his mom’s reaction when she saw it is just priceless.

So let’s do it people. Start sharing. This is too sweet to be ignored. I hope this dude makes a follow up video because I’m dying to see if his mom found what she was looking for.
