My current lover recommended this book to me abot four years ago after reading a review and we have, indeed, discussed many aspects of it and learned from it. If you have loved and lost or reentered the dating market, it is a good summary of what can await you.

This book was recommended to me by my new lover after he read a review of it in The Oregonian, and he thought I might enjoy it! Well, he was right. Pepper Schwartz gives not only a narrative of her own situation and her own reasons for proceding with each decision, but validates the reasoning and actions of many other boomer females, including myself. She shows us that it's perfectly acceptable to seek out the man first, discarding him as needed along the way, and moving on in life and love. I found the chapter on 'Ted' especially disconcerting, but won't go into specific details other than 'I saw it coming' and wondered why she had the reaction she did when she seemed so secure and in control of her previous situations until this one. I would have jettisoned 'Ted' much sooner, for a number of reasons. Dr. Schwartz covers everything a woman can feel in the search for a new lover and/or permanent mate, exploring not only the ups but the downs of the search, but her motives for doing what she did even if it hurts later. It's amusing, sad, and envigorating. She is very open about her own sexuality and that of her lovers. I personally felt more secure in my new relationship after reading the chapter on love and the married man, and she sure was on target in observations about being dumped! Therapeutic reading for any women 'of a certain age', whether in a monogamous relationship or starting to shop around, with good, first-hand info on how to avoid men who are 'projects', and how to move on from the 'project' we're leaving or who left us. Don't let a man make you miserable or wear you down - do it to him first! Just put on your sexiest shoes, kick him to the curb, and keep walking! And remember, the best way to get over one man is to get under another!

Getting back into the world of dating after a divorce, I found this book to be very insightful and after actually dating a little, I am planning on re-reading a few chapters! It's really a jungle out there!

Suddenly she felt a surge of energy in her. She grabbed the antidote from Megatron after she pulled the dagger from her shoulder. She healed herself, then fled to result one.
