Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Schneider and Byer, both prolific authors with M.S.W.s and experience working with families, here offer solid guidelines on dating for single parents and widows/widowers. Parents, they believe, deserve and need a love life, but at the same time they must protect children from further loss and confusion. The authors treat the whole spectrum of dating, from casual dates through serious relationships and remarriage. They openly confront problems (e.g., hostile teenagers, power plays by children to try to derail a parent's relationship, and the need to find time for passion), offering realistic and varied solutions, and in separate chapters deal with dating after the death of a spouse and after children have left home. Although divorce and parenting books generally provide some coverage of romance, this is the only extended treatment of the topic-one certainly on the minds of many parents today. Recommended for all public libraries.-Kay Brodie, Chesapeake Coll., Wye Mills, MD Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

This book is absolutely amazing. I suggestd that everyone read this even if you arent divorced. Just read it for the hell of it. It gave me the confidence to go back out there and start dating again. I feel so young and fresh again. It's almost like I'm a teenager again. My daughter is even jealous of my success in findning the "right man" after reading this book. This book pushed my in the right direction to finding love and lust again. I could write for days about this book but I cant be late for my date!!!!
