Publisher Comments:

"One of the best relationship books for our times. Culbreth's endearing style offers true laughs on the way to securing true love." --Pamela Redmond Satran, author of The Man I Should Have Married

Maybe you've heard wonderful success stories about online dating but are a little intimidated to try it. Or perhaps you think there are no terrific men your age. That's how journalist Judsen Culbreth felt until she gave online dating a try. She discovered that older single men significantly outnumber women on online dating sites, and, more important, they're eager to make a match with someone who shares their interests (and generation).

Whether you're new to online dating, or need a refresher course to boost your dating confidence, Culbreth, who married her cyber-sweetheart at age 52, guides you through the practical aspects of this new venture, including:

• The differences among the various Internet date sites

• How to craft an online personal ad

• E-mail etiquette

• When to meet in person

She also gently offers you personal wisdom, from uncovering your mental roadblocks to dating and revamping your image, to brushing up on the world of men and how to approach the ever-important topic of intimacy. Filled with real life success stories, checklists, worksheets, and fun facts to get you motivated and courting the smart way, The Boomers' Guide to Online Dating is the reassuring resource you need--your handbook to finding the perfect man.

JUDSEN CULBRETH has more than 30 years of experience in magazines and TV journalism, serving as editor-in-chief of Working Mother, executive editor of Redbook, and the first work/family contributing editor on the Today show. With her husband, she divides her time between Montclair, New Jersey, and Fairhope, Alabama.

Synopsis:

A thorough yet lighthearted guide to online dating, designed primarily to help the over-35 woman browse Internet sites--with confidence, ease, and a sense of adventure--and capture that special someone.Online dating is a national phenomenon, with some 30 million people logging on to dating sites each month. Yet many women over 35 still hesitate when it comes to browsing for a mate.That's exactly how author Judsen Culbreth felt when she found herself single again at age 49, after a 20-year marriage. Overcoming her own trepidation, she decided to take the plunge and post an online personals ad. Not only did she get 84 responses within 2 days, but eventually she found romance and a second chance at love and marriage. Now she draws upon her own online adventures and her vast experience in magazine and TV journalism to provide Boomers and mature GenXers with the guide they need to navigate their way through the three stages of cyber-courtship: defining compatibility, creating chemistry, and closing on commitment.Culbreth understands the lives and yearnings of mature single women and speaksempathetically to the concerns of her audience, addressing worries about their desirability, the safety of the Internet, and the availability of good men. Her book combines research; how-to advice; warm, personal success stories; and quizzes and exercises. Women over 35 who are ready to brave the confusing world of online dating will find the information and reassurance they seek in her breezy and very smart guide.
