A Reality Check With ... Lynn Borges (NBC's "Age of Love")

Lynn Borges grew up in Hawaii, but has yet to catch a wave into the right man's heart. When it comes to dating, Lynn takes things much slower the older she gets. She often dates men who are ten years younger than her, though her last relationship only lasted for three months. Pickup lines are a major turnoff, which is no surprise coming from a gal who is a bit of a homemaker who loves to cook and bake. Lynn was surprisingly eliminated on Monday night's episode of "Age of Love". She's here to talk to RealityCheckByGina & dishes on why she's glad she got out when she did!

RC: Can you reminder the readers how old you are?

Lynn: I’m 40.

RC: What made you want to participate in “Age of Love”?
Lynn: It came at the right time. I happened to be on Craig’s List & came across an ad that said, “Are you in your 40s & haven’t found Mr. Right yet?” I thought, “Yeah, that’s me.” I did the audition tape & I never thought I would get as far as I did!

RC: What was your first impression of Mark when you first met him?
Lynn: He’s very quiet! I think everyone would agree with that. I’m quiet too so it was really hard trying to get to know him. He’s very attractive though, very sweet, polite.

RC: How did you adjust to the twists in the game such as you’d be competing against a group of 20-year-olds?

Lynn: That one was a little tough because, actually, before I even left for Nashville, I asked if there were going to be 20 year olds because I said I didn’t want to do it if that was the case. When they were thrown in, I was definitely shocked. Then I thought, “It is what it is. I’ll keep going being myself.” If Mark is going to be attracted to a 20-year-old, there’s nothing I could have done.

RC: Are you glad you got out before both groups of women moved in together?
Lynn: Yes, I felt like I had some guardian angels on that one. I was definitely relieved that I got eliminated when I did. It was a situation I never wanted to be in. I wanted to make sure I stayed true to myself, staying mature.

RC: What has the reaction been by your friends & family since being on the show?
Lynn: My mom loved it & had all her friends watch. She said, “You look so good, I’m so proud of you,” so that was a really good feeling. I was really cautious about how some of the things I might’ve said. I always wanted to make sure that my family & friends would be proud of.

RC: Were you bothered that Maria said she was going to walk and then decided to stay once she got to the elimination?
Lynn: Well, I was shocked because Maria & I were in separate bedrooms so I had no idea she was even planning that. I didn’t even know ‘til I watched the show last night. I was like, “What?! I had no idea she was planning on walking.” I couldn’t even hear at the elimination when they were talking by the pool. I was wondering why she was down there so long. I had no idea.

RC: Did you understand why you were eliminated?

Lynn: As far as understanding, it’s because we probably didn’t have a connection. We never had time to talk to each other. I think he was finding that the other girls were more fun & upbeat, crazy & wild.

RC: Do the 40s offer something the 20s can’t?

Lynn: Absolutely! From watching the episodes too, Mark has more interaction with the 40-year-olds. They can keep his attention a little more. I hope Mark does choose one of the 40 year olds.

RC: Have you ever dated a younger man? What worked about it & what didn’t?
Lynn: My last boyfriend was 29. Well, what didn’t work was the timing. He was going through a divorce & he needed space. What worked was that we met through my best friend who is his sister. We had this common bond, already knew each other, and it was very comfortable.

RC: Do you have a favorite memory or friendship from your time on “Age of Love”?
Lynn: All the girls in the 40s group really did bond & we had a great time. My favorite experience was repelling down the side of the building. That’s something I never would’ve dreamed of doing! Out of all the girls, I probably got closest to Angela so when she left, I was feeling sad. I was worried about being the outsider.


RC: What’s the secret to looking so good at 40?
Lynn: I think a positive attitude. That came through all my experiences in my 20s & 30s. You go through a bad experience or traumatic experience, you grow from it & it makes you stronger. You put things in perspective & you let little things go. I used to stress over everything in my 20s. Everything was huge & dramatic! Now, in my 40s, I say, “Is it really worth it?” You choose your battles. As far as maintaining looks, it’s just health. Exercise, eating right – taking care of yourself, stuff that everyone knows about. I’m really trying to take care of myself.

RC: Did the show change your perspective on dating?
Lynn: The show was a really positive thing for me. I came back thinking, “Wow, there is so much to do.” I’m a lot more active. I spend more time with my friends, taking ballroom dancing lessons, going to church more regularly, a lot of great things. I haven’t dated since I got back from the show. I don’t need to be dating. I’m really happy with how things are & if it’s gonna happen, it’s gonna happen.



Age of Love airs Mondays on NBC at 9pm EST

These two players will be key to this team's success over the next few years as Asomugha is arguably one of the best corners in the league and Miller is quickly turning into the best option in the Raiders' passing game. Grace
