Trisha Goddard and her podcast candid interview
Trisha Goddard has gone through three painful divorces. She is in her 60s now and dating a mystery man since past two years. But she is happy. Speaking to host Paolo Diana of the podcast, Unleashed: The Game Changers, Trisha talked about her love life after she ended her two decade marriage in 2018.
‘I was married for 20 years and I met my ex-husband when I was a single mum, I’d been a single mum since by younger daughter was seven weeks and my elder daughter was about four or five.
‘It’s very different dating as a single older woman, you can get far more involved when you haven’t got children around.”
Trisha and more details of her romances
The TV host Trisha explained further:
‘When you’re fighting for your career, you’re still trying to establish yourself and you don’t quite know who you are, the kind of partner who you attract and who are attracted to is really different from when you’re 40, 50, 60 and you know who you are and pretty well know what you want.
‘It’s a very different world and of course a lot of it is technology. I had girlfriends sign me up to internet dating, ugh! No, oh my God!’
‘Somebody said something really interesting the other day that struck a chord with me.
‘I interviewed Harlan Coben the best-selling author and he said to me “in our heads we’re always that 17 year old”. But the guys out there, when you see their pictures, it’s like “I am not 17!” Older men are completely different, completely different!’
Trisha had dated and married younger man. She disclosed:
‘I’ve always had younger husbands, well, my first husband was older than me, a lot older than me.
‘My second husband, the father of my children, was about six months younger and my last husband of 20 years was five-years younger, but like 15 years older?
‘I’ve really learned with people in general that you can’t just go on their age. I’ve met so many 50-year-old guys who are like 80, and my current boyfriend, #Boo as I call him, is older than me but he likes to play, he’s a child.
‘He’s vigorous, he’s ten years older than my ex-husband but 10 years younger? If that makes sense?’
Trisha talks about emotional men
The ageless beauty Trisha said:
‘If you have a guy who’s carrying a lot of emotional baggage, there are so many women who’ve said, that there are those men that we end up mothering, because their mothers didn’t do the right job!
‘We don’t want to become the mother, we don’t! At first it’s like “oh yeah I can cook for him” and it’s fine, but when you you become the mother… I became my ex-husband’s parent because his father wasn’t on the scene and his mother admitted she had no maternal instincts whatsoever.
‘I was mother and father, and to my own children, and it was just too much.’
After such a controlling relationship, she found dating after that difficult. But she is now in a happy relationship with a gentleman from Connecticut.
