I sure do wish this was a better book!
Since many of my clients are indeed over 50, I had high hopes for Sharon Romm's *Dating After 50: Negotiating the Minefields of Midlife Romance* Unfortunately, I was disappointed. Despite the author's professional background (psychiatry) and personal dating experience (an active date search with 751 responses before meeting her now-boyfriend), I found her suggestions tedious, simplistic, and depressing. Her orientation towards the reader's search is so cautious and wary that I even felt a little frightened. Maybe that's where the *minefields* of the title came from. Granted, mate searching at any age has it's difficulties, but finding a Sweetheart doesn't have to be as hard as the author alludes. Believe it or not, she ends the book with a chapter entitled *Breaking Up*! While certainly when and how to break off a romantic relationship are important skills, to end a book on dating with a how-to for break-ups is a horrid message. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this book...
