Arthur Moult and Florence Philips were set up for date. It doesn’t sound like a funny story until you find out how old Arthur and Florence are. They are both 100 years old and despite the age, they were up for a blind date. It was their first blind date ever, but apparently is going really well between them.
The two were setup at a local supermarket café in England. They share a whole meal including desert. The date ended with Arthur serenading Florence.
Since that first date, Arthur has been bringing Florence flowers and chocolates each time they meet. And after just three weeks of “dating”, they already met each other’s families. Florence’s husband died in his 50’s while Arthur’s wife died 25 years ago.
“Arthur is a wonderful man and he has a wonderful singing voice,” said Florence. “He sang Ave Maria to me, which I hadn’t heard since I was a teenager. It brought back so many memories and I thought it was so beautiful.” “Meeting Florence was really nice,” Arthur said. “She’s a lovely person to talk to and she has a great sense of humor. It’s nice to talk to someone the same age as me who remembers many of the things that I do.” What a sweet story!
