Back on Top: Fearless Dating after Divorce by Ginger Emas

Ginger Emas thought the best thing about getting married was that she would never have to go on a first date again. Then she got divorced. Two years and eighty-seven dates later, she brings us Back On Top—sharing practical tips, tales from the trenches, and a healthy dose of comical commiseration. Back on Top reveals today’s new rules and dating dilemmas; the secrets of online profiles, speed dating, and lock-and-key parties; the truth about Internet intimacy; what to wear on your first date, and when to take it off. The book arms women with dating checklists, man must-haves and red flags even a queen of denial can’t miss. With hilarious real-life help from dating survivor Ginger Emas, divorced women everywhere will not only be back on top, it will become their favorite position.

I found this book extremely helpful in explaining the ins and outs of online dating. It is something that I have been toying with since my divorce, but something has been holding me back. I believe that it is fear of the unknown; not knowing what I should/should not do. Now I have a lot more confidence.

Wow - what a great read! Should be required reading for any woman who has gone through a divorce. Loved the author's warm, wise voice and felt like I really took the journey with her as she dated 87 guys and then met the right one in a surprising manner. It was a funny, uplifting experience that I'd recommend to any of my friends who are single, divorced or now happily connected after going through a journey like this themselves.
