Recently divorced man is angry at women, but will see his anger will fade in time

December 01, 2016

Peter, a single man, shared his thoughts on why he's fed up with dating. He said he isn't bitter after his divorce and it's not his intention to sound like he's whining. "Just thought I would give you a different and honest perspective from a man," Peter emailed.
 He wrote, "I think there are a lot of men like me who are 'worn out' dating women after a lengthy and very expensive divorce! I am tired of getting dressed in a suit, driving my date to a fine, expensive restaurant, acting as a doorman and paying for it all only to be granted a kiss on the cheek at the end of the evening."

Footprints in Cyberspace. Divorce after 50 may include electronic evidence. Cheaters can be caught by using electronic evidence.

Have you experienced cheating by a spouse or significant other? Did they think they were getting away with it without being caught? In the booming electronic age, they likely left (or, are leaving now) a trail of evidence that could come back to haunt them. 


Also, Leaving a trail of electronic evidence could affect divorce outcome.


Older singles are aware of the incredible impact the Internet has had on the world of dating. It's the main tool used to bring people together, whether they live across town or across America.

Dating Before The Divorce is Final. Enjoying the domestic side of life--briefly

December 01, 2016

As often happens, one person's story in this newsletter strikes a chord with someone else who has had a similar experience. Such was the case with Rich's story of two weeks ago. He dated a widow, she professed her love, he fell in love, it was a storybook romance--and then unknown to him, she went on to date other men.


Jane, not her true name, wrote, "About five months ago, I started seeing a guy who has been separated for two years from his wife of 22 yrs. We got into that dating before the divorce is final gray area.

Signing a book for Paul McCartney. Adults have relationship issues all over the world

October 16, 2016

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, a woman named Victoria came to my Dana Point, Ca. deli and purchased a copy of my Finding Love After 50. How to Begin. Where to Go. What to Do book. She asked me to inscribe it to Sir Paul McCartney.


Victoria said she felt the book would help him-as it had helped her when she went through a tough divorce-to cope better during his current divorce from actress Heather Mills.


I was pretty darned surprised. I picked up my pen. I can usually knock out a sentence or two without much thought when personalizing a book for someone. But what the heck do you write to Paul McCartney? You don't say something dumb like, "I enjoy your music," he's heard that millions of times.

Dating before the divorce is final

October 16, 2016

A woman named Arlene emailed me Wednesday night: "I am in the process of getting divorced and I am not sure when the final court date will occur. I am 62 and had been with my soon to be ex-husband for 38 years. Although with a separation date of August, 2011, I am still hesitant to venture into the dating arena.
