Susan Gelles was a lawyer in her 30s who was too busy to find love. But after finally admitting that she was lonely, Susan did something that went against all her best instincts: she started attending singles mixers.

On this episode of the Modern Love podcast, Susan shares her disastrous mismatches, awkward flirtations, and the story of how she almost missed her chance to meet the love of her life.

Modern Love is hosted by Anna Martin and produced by Julia Botero, Christina Djossa and Hans Buetow. The show is edited by Jen Poyant, our executive producer, and Anabel Bacon. The show is mixed by Sophia Lanman and recorded by Maddy Masiello. It features original music by Dan Powell, Marion Lozano, Elisheba Ittoop, Pat McCusker and Rowan Niemisto. Our theme music is by Dan Powell.

Special thanks to Daniel Jones, Miya Lee, Mahima Chablani, Nell Gallogly, Jeffrey Miranda, Renan Borelli, Nina Lassam and Julia Simon.
