HEARTS DON'T GET WRINKLES
Is it possible to fall in love again once we reach our third age? Or is there a point after which it’s simply too late to start over? Kai Lippens is in his early 60s and is looking for a new partner. He experiences some exciting dates, enchanting affairs, painful rejections and tries online dating, but none of the women he meets want to commit. To find out why, the author interviews other women and men in a similar position who tell him their reasons (some good, others grotesquely bad), while also relating excuses they’ve made and admitting fears they try to hide. Through it all, Kai carries on dating, undaunted. This is an encouraging look at love, sex and partnership for those on the other side of 50.
