Item description for Find the Love of Your Life After 50! by Alice Solomon...
Finding romance at a later stage in life can be incredibly elusive. When a single woman over fifty, who bring many years of experience in living with her, ventures out to seek a companion for pleasurable years ahead, she faces a changed and unfamiliar social world. In fact, as there are fewer available unattached men to be found as she ages, it becomes more and more difficult knowing how and where to meet them.
As much as we hate to admit it, most women of our generation were brought up to see ourselves through the eyes of the man with whom we were connected. How do we see ourselves now? How solid is our confidence, our courage, our self-image, our self-esteem? And, dating again? Memories of those experiences faded with poodle skirts and bobby socks. Not that memories will help. It is a very new, single world with varied and different expectations - not only on our part but also on the part of the men we meet. Beginning to date again and knowing how to behave is, oftentimes, fearful, bewildering, and challenging.
FIND THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE AFTER FIFTY! focuses on the importance of renewing self-confidence while it resolves those issues important to dating and mating at this stage in our lives: how to improve on attitude and adaptability; where to meet men graciously; how to go about dating with dignity; whether sex is as important now as it was in the past; how to overcome feelings of rejection, and more. Offering true life stories, guidelines, tests, and self-help quizzes, this book will motivate, educate, and encourage a totally new and positive attitude about dating. Bottom line conclusion -- do not seek the life in the dating scene; use the dating scene to find the love of your life.
What does it take, then, to find a companion, a pal, a lover, a mate at this stage in your life? It takes acknowledging that dating is different from years past. It takes summoning courage and taking risks. It takes the right timing. It takes being adaptable. It takes being realistic, being creative, and educating yourself. It takes looking good. It takes avoiding married men! And, at the very least, it takes knowing the best places to meet men.
What a task, you might say? Not really. It's easier than you think.
Join Alice Solomon and FIND THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE AFTER FIFTY! to learn how you can bring love, romance, and companionship into your life once more.

BABY BOOMERS ROCK! Jun 18, 2008
Books about baby boomers and dating are proliferating because this particular group has declared themselves ageless. They feel it is never to late to do anything you want to do, including finding love. This book is a great choice for helping the newly single or inexperienced baby boomer find love. The writer is delightful and her book is well written and informative. If you want to find another book about the same subject, but slightly different in tone, try Baby Boomer Bachelorette: How to Have Sex at Least Once More Before You Die. The writer is witty and the book has tons of great information. Buy them both together and save money.
Interesting, Good Tips, Jun 14, 2007
Alice Solomon bills herself as a Gorgeous Grandma. While not every boomer wants to consider herself a gorgeous grandma, the spirit behind the idea is great. This spirit evokes fun and adventure and is evident in the pages of this book. The book is actually a collection of essays about different aspects of dating after 50 -- everything from Internet dating to face cream, assertiveness and the peril of married men. It also has a number of good suggestions as to where to meet men, including activities to take up.
I've found in my coaching practice that many women who are dating haven't done the inner work that they need to do first. This book will help you prepare for dating in many ways, so it's worth the read. The only negatives I find about it are that it does seem a little disjointed because of the essay style and it feels like she's talking to women who are older than my age (mid-50s if you must know!).
If you have forgotten how to flirt and just starting out on the dating scene after 50, this is the book for you.
THIS BOOK IS FOR WOMEN OF ANY AGE May 7, 2004
(Deb Jones, Online Reviewer) Don't let the title of the book fool you: FIND THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE AFTER 50! This book is for women of any age, and for men as well, if they'd like some insight into the female mind and heart. For the younger set, the whole idea of the book may seem silly...but life does NOT end at thirty...and women and men in the fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth decades of their lives have emotional and sexual needs as do their younger counterparts. Alice Solomon has written a very sensible and insightful book about a long-ignored sector of the dating population. In this book written to and for "Gorgeous Grandmas," Solomon addresses issues such as how dating and relationships differ at this life stage than in younger years. Skin care is discussed as well as the importance of good grooming, and makeup for the mid-life woman. Realistic and varied places are presented for consideration of meeting new people, as well as prompts to remain open-minded and non-judgmental when doing so. Because people who are meeting one another at this point in their lives are not looking to marry in order to raise a family, it is pointed out that readers should reflect on what lifestyle changes they are willing to make...and those that they are not. There are multiple self-help quizzes to aid the reader in her quest to make the most of this portion of her dating life. Alice Solomon writes from personal experience, as well as that of her friends and readers and listeners to both her formerly syndicated newspaper column and as a former radio show co-host The book is written in a clear and flowing style, easy-to-read and unpretentious. Reading FINDING THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE AFTER 50! is like having great conversation with a good friend.
