After his wife died, author, Chuck Epstein, discovered that re-entering the dating scene wasn’t easy. Here’s his story of online dating after 50.

My radio guest, Chuck Epstein, was married 33 years when he lost his wife to cancer.

He wrote a memoir about his adventures in online dating after 50, You Don’t Think I’m Beautiful.
