Get back in the game.
Baby boomers dated during the sexual revolution of the 1960s and '70s. They married at the same time as Lee Majors and Farrah Fawcett. And all too often, they divorced at just about the time of Woodstock '99. The idea of jumping back into the dating pool can be frightening, but author, baby boomer, and clinical psychologist Laurie Helgoe has been there, and in this indispensable guide she shows readers how to: ? Look for love in all the right places
? Dress for success, from casual dates to dinner parties to nights on the town
? Have sparkling conversations (imagine-no date is going to ask, "What's your major?"!)
? Accept fix-ups or turn them down graciously
? Shop around
? Stay open-minded about the possibility of new love
