AARP Releases "Dating After 50 for Dummies"
Meet, Date, and Start a Relationship with Mr. or Ms. Right–after 50
WASHINGTON, Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- People typically associate falling in love with their younger years, but as the Baby Boomer generation ages, more and more people over 50 are jumping back into the dating scene. If you're single and over 50, the trusted advice in AARP's DATING AFTER 50 FOR DUMMIES (Wiley; December 2013; ISBN: 978-1-118-44132-9) gives you everything you need to get out there and meet the partner of your dreams.
Perfect for those getting back into the game, maybe for the first time in a long time, as well as anyone needing advice and guidance on how the dating world has changed since they last tested the water, DATING AFTER 50 FOR DUMMIES—by AARP's Love & Relationships Ambassador Dr. Pepper Schwartz—covers the gamut of topics for those dating after 50: dating confidence boosters; the physical and emotional benefits of sex and relationships as we age; dating site options (and how to sign up for the first trial); safety concerns; fun and different dating ideas; how to introduce a new partner to your children; and much more.
Readers of DATING AFTER 50 FOR DUMMIES will get trusted information on:
- Dating and relationship advice for baby boomers
- How to deal with medical issues that can make sex difficult
- Dating advice for gays and lesbians
- Ways to build self-esteem
"It can be intimidating to start dating again when your last date was 40 years ago-- but it's so worth it," said Schwartz. "There are many wonderful and attractive available people in every decade of life, but sometimes a little advice helps in order to create opportunities and make the most of them when you get them." Dating After 50 for Dummies is the book I would have wanted when I went into the dating market after the end of a 23 year marriage. Both professionally and personally, I believe that getting back into dating will be good for people's health, hearts and minds. My hope is this book will help everyone thinking about dating, or needing some advice, to date more successfully along the way."
