Isnt that always the way Glean..

I think if I had done things differently I would be happy with someone right now and I wouldnt be in such dire straits as I am now. I made stupid choices when it came to men and life and I could have done it differently instead of hanging onto the wrong ones I could have found the right one.. Now it could be too late for me as I am 58 years old.

Maybe we do get more chances but they are very few and far between but right now I wont miss out on one single opportunity as life gets shorter and shorter...

Hang In

I agree, I liked that the book had a positive tone, and didn't push OLD, or any specific strategy.

The chapter on choosing whether you like to be single or want a relationship made me think quite a bit.

<<>> Ugh. I had a girlfriend who wouldn't go anywhere unless it involved the possibility of meeting men. It was so annoying. We'd all plan a fun, girls night out, but if something else came up that involved going to a bar or dancing, she'd cancel immediately(or would just not show up). The thing was, when we'd compromise and do these sorts of "meat market" things with her...it would just end up being a one night stand, anyway. Which, ONS are fine, I've had them, but if you are looking for a potential mate, I just don't think meat markets are the place to go...

Of course it's about making money! If it weren't, they'd just throw all of their "expert" advice online where people can access it for free.

I had a sneaky suspicion it didnt relate to over 50 crowd because statistically the best population to buy those kind of books are 20 and 30 and 40 somethings.. I am starting to believe its all about money now with these books and love gurus.because they know the market and who to sell to.

A few months ago I wrote to Dr. Drew Pinksky.. Well? his show that is on tv called life changers.. I wrote in and asked to do a show on women and men over 50 looking for love. I never heard anything
