TV INTERVIEWSDATE LIKE A GROWNUP AUTHOR| CONNECTION COACH | ADVICE COLUMNIST | HEATHER DUGAN
Date Like a Grownup: Anecdotes, Admissions of Guilt & Advice Between Friends examines the impact of loneliness and social obsolescence on men and women in their second single lives and provides punctuating proof that looking for love from a place of isolation is as unwise as grocery shopping on an empty stomach.
Unlike many other relationship manuals, this book will not guide the reader through game-playing and winning temporary partners. Instead, readers will develop a personalized strategy for building a life foundation that facilitates growing a “right fit” relationship. Topics include: effective filtering, social media and online dating, how to avoid isolation and strategically building a larger social network. Engaging narratives such as “The Percocet Proposal” and “Need Meets Greed” affirm that none of us are immune to bad choices and underline specific dating principles outlined in the book.
And with at least half of the adult population attempting a “do-over” on their most committed relationship—and many getting it wrong yet a second time—these proven “do’s and don’ts”are first date gold for men and women navigating midlife dating and vicarious entertainment for thankful sideline observers.
