Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
While books addressing young lovers glut the market, there's relatively little on romance and love in midlife and beyond; these guides seek to address that void. Morris, thrust into the dating scene after being widowed, speaks to intimidated readers as a knowledgeable older sister, using her own experience and case studies to encourage love seeking again. She discusses the pros and cons of online dating and matchmaking services and covers intimate questions regarding sex, cohabitation, money, and independence. Included are annotated lists of web resources, one of which uses middle-aged models rather than the "usual eighteen-year-old nubile bodies."Romm, a couples therapist, shares much of the same information, only in a more factual format that features the odd example from the author's practice. Online dating and other options for meeting people are discussed, as are helpful tips for navigating second and third dates and dealing with second families, former spouses, benefits, and the other issues common to later-life relationships. If one has to choose between the two books, Dating After 50 is a safer bet and recommended for most public libraries. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
