Dr. Nancy Kalish, a psychologist, started this website more than a decade ago, after she reunited with a college boyfriend.
They got engaged, but he broke it off.
So she did what academics do in situations like this: she started a survey.
She found that, contrary to her own experience and expectations, nearly three-quarters of those who reunited with an early love stayed together.
Even more interesting, she discovered that these unions tend to be extremely happy.
In 1997 her book on the subject, “Lost & Found Lovers” was published.
Over the past 11 years she’s researched more than 2,000 rekindled romances, which she tracks on her website.
