Secrets of Dating After Fifty: The Insider’s Guide to Finding Love Again by Karen Haddigan is exactly what the title says; an insider’s guide. She and a girlfriend have been there, done that, and… suffered from ignorance. Divorced? Bereaved? Single and lonely? Secrets of Dating After Fifty tells you what not to do, like use married friends as matchmakers, how to choose a dating site and, more importantly, why you shouldn’t look for a new partner while you’re grieving or still furious over a cheating ex. When you do get into dating, this could be, must be, your Bible. Everything from handling baggage – health, dependent family, debt etc. - to presenting yourself well online, keeping safe, playing fair when others don’t, and handling rejection.

The dating game has changed since you were in your twenties and thirties, and so have you! You’re no longer the gal, or guy, who can sit in a bar looking good and hook a member of the opposite sex with a good chat-up line; dating is all online. This is great, surely? Online you can do privately from home, with a glass of wine to hand whilst you take your pick. Er… no. Dating sites require photos, profiles, and what happens if you use an outdated photo or say the wrong thing? What is the wrong thing? What’s the right thing? Trust Karen Haddigan. In Secrets of Dating After Fifty: The Insider’s Guide to Finding Love Again, she guides you around the pitfalls with advice laced with a wry sense of humour.
