Graham , who is happy and content with the relationship they have built , encourages others over fifty looking for love to give dating websites a try if they fail to meet someone on their own or through friends .

However , she does warn people to be on guard because she experienced two situations with people pretending to be potential suitors but were fraud artists on dating websites . She quickly recognized them for what they were .
