As both a psychotherapist and a woman from the 'sixties set' who just returned to the dating scene I was amazed at how 'on target' this book is!! Not only were the messages those that I would deliver as a therapist, but reading them helped guide me through this new venture in my own life...a truly helpful read! --Mimi Scott, PhD, LCSW Author, Split: Tales of Children of Divorce
This is NOT another ""quick fix"" to dating but a foundation of how dating paradigms shift with age. Rosalind & Amy deliver a step-by-step guide that is easy to follow and can be implemented instantly! What I admire most is their ability to portray the advantages that age & experience can bring to the table! Dating at 20 was 'crazy', dating as boomers becomes dating 'smart'. Rosalind & Amy show you that creating long term, lasting relationships at this age with an emotionally available and stable partner is not only in your cards but attainable step-by-step! --Ben Winkler, Relationship Coach for Singles, www.BenWinkler.com
An amazing accomplishment in touching upon so many essential components regarding ""Women and Dating"" so concisely. If you are in therapy, use this book as a checklist. It can open the door to a lot of valuable work. If not in therapy, use it as your own pre-dating checklist in the same way a pilot would use a pre-flight check before take off. Do not leave the ground without it. --C. Paul Wanio, Ph.D., LMFT, LMHC, and author of, I Love You I Think: When Sex Disguises Itself As Love
