A Boomer Chick's Guide To Online Dating

About The Book image
Are you a Boomer Chick looking for love?

Imagine my being married for 43 years and suddenly I found myself alone. What I knew for sure was that I did not want to live out the rest of my life by myself. I was still very young at heart and had lots of love to give. I had heard of online dating, but like many women my age, I was petrified by the thought of meeting a stranger online.

In my book: A Boomer Chick’s Guide to Online Dating – You’re Never Too Old to Look and Love, I start out taking you through the journey of my first thirty days online and all the lessons I learned along the way.

Although this guide is aimed at “Boomer Chicks”, there are clearly lessons that are appropriate for young and old alike. There is no magic age for finding the joys of being in a loving relationship. My goal is to help women looking for love, reduce their fear of online dating so that they can find the man of their dreams.

This guide is meant as entertainment, and I hope you will learn some practical lessons on how to recognize “red flags” in a relationship and how to take an appreciative look at who you are and what you need. Learn the importance of loving yourself first so that you are whole and ready to love a partner.

Join me on the weird, wacky, and wonderful world of online dating! Witness how I worked through interactions with the bright, the bogus and the braggadocios men online to finding love and lessons to last a lifetime.

I was asked why I wrote an online dating guide, especially at my age! First of all, age has nothing at all to do with your spirit. I have always been full of life and passionate about everything I do. I believe in loving your life and making time for the things that nourish your spirit.

I have always believed that humans are all spirits in search of other spirits. We are not meant to be alone. We always seek out social…and physical connections, so when my husband died, I decided I did not want to be alone. At first, I told myself I would devote one night a week making a beautiful dinner and inviting someone to enjoy it with me. Gradually, after I started to embrace having an identity that embodied who I am as an individual rather than who I was as part of a couple, I started to get excited about the freedom to create the life I wanted.

Although the transformation was a gradual metamorphosis as I spread my wings and began to fly, I realized that I loved my new life, but there was something missing. I decided that I wanted to become part of a couple again, but how was I going to find a new partner at my age?

I was petrified to think about dating sites, so my writer-self kicked in and I decided to use my fear of this unknown process to create a journal of my experiences. I thought it would do two things: make me brave and help other women who were as reticent as I to jump into this new world.

As the project began to unfold, I delved into sharing lessons I had learned. I am very anecdotal by nature. I teach by telling stories. As a result, the book is filled with stories and the lessons I learned. Finally, since I wanted this book to also serve as a guide for others, I researched the hotlines that are the resources to avert any serious problems.

I love helping others, and I have loved all of the experiences I had as I wrote this book. I have met some amazing men, worthy of being a fabulous partner for you…or me! I hope you will have fun, both reading this book and finding true love…you deserve it.

Resources image
I have worked for many years supporting women. So many women seem lost when it comes to having protection methods in place. This list of resource links below is not meant to cause stress, but rather as a reminder that when we have taken the time to know where to get help if help is ever needed for you or anyone you know, you will be able to move through life in a more confident way. You are seeing the resources here and the hope is that, if you ever need them, you will remember exactly where to go to get the information you need. You can help yourself or anyone who is in danger and has no idea where to turn. Never, never leave yourself vulnerable. My wish is that you never need any of these services, but my commitment to you is that I provide as much as possible to make your experience in the online dating world the best it can be.
