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. Having recently moved to Florida for her treatments, he didn’t have much of a support community, so he attended a grief support group. He was the only man in a group of 15 women. When the leader asked, “Who is ready to date again?” he was the only one to raise his hand!
He wrote a memoir about his adventures in online dating after 50, You Don’t Think I’m Beautiful. It’s filled with the ups and downs of dating after 50, especially if you live in Florida with many retirees. You’ll laugh at some of his crazy stories, and other dating adventures will tear on your heartstrings.
