Love is not just for the young. On this week’s 51%, we speak with editors Nan Bauer-Maglin and Daniel Hood about their new book Gray Love: Stories About Dating and New Relationships After 60. From terrible first dates to newfound partnerships, Gray Love explores how the search for companionship does and doesn’t change after retirement – and how it always teaches us more about ourselves. We also speak with the women behind upstate New York’s newest dating service, Micropolitan Matchmakers.
Guests: Nan Bauer-Maglin and Daniel Hood, editors of Gray Love: Stories About Dating and New Relationships After 60; Becky Daniels and Gabby Fisher, co-founders of Metropolitan Matchmakers
