No one denies the anguish of divorce at midlife, but the online dating that follows is the greatest shock of all.
Matchless: Searching for Love Online is my memoir of a 50-something woman seeking a meaningful relationship in the Cyber Age when the click of a mouse is the difference between deletion and forever. Along the way I share the feelings on my first date since Watergate and Patty Hearst and introduce you to the world of internet dating including people like ImYourPleazer, ReeferMagic, Burn4Love and more. This is a modern-day journey that requires fortitude and friends to survive. With girlfriends and dating stories there are usually cocktails, so I have included drink recipes to complement each episode along the way.
Our mothers could never have prepared us for the dating game of today when a new, younger ‘option’ is only a click away. Matchless begins after my divorce and takes readers through the ups and downs of flirtations and first dates, rejection and renewal. It will appeal to women navigating this alien world and their married sisters who may be wondering what it is like to be single once again. With a friend the journey is more palatable; Matchless is like a friend who helps you laugh at the absurdity of it all—while also sharing the very real agony of personal reinvention.
With 30% of America’s baby boomers now single, it’s surprising that this story has not been told.
