"John left Susie after 27 years of marriage to run off with a 23-year-old topless dancer." By reading this book, singles will gain insight into the challenges and opportunities in middle aged dating. Later, my dogs are in the kitchen with me, tilting their heads, confused because I'm crying. Paul Simon is singing something about losing love, there is a hole in your heart and everybody knows you're hurting. I'm fortunate, I guess., in that I own a deli in a California beach town. I jot down 10 appealing female customers I would enjoy taking out.
In there, I get bashed, bruised, criticized, and sometimes complimented.
At least, Tm being more realistic by expanding the search beyond the deli. Response: When I started to date, I didn't think first about how old a prospect was. I never dreamed at age 54 I'd have to worry about AIDS or other STD's, sexually transmitted diseases. During my three marriages covering over 14 years, I chuckled smugly when I saw a condom display. Condom shopping is necessary, but I have looked forward to root canals more. I'd pay someone else to buy them It was sort of the same deal as when we'd have a guy over age 21 buy booze for us.
Any woman who wasn't nailed to the floor, from age 20 to 80, I'd ask out As time goes on, you will see a change in my behavior. In my 19 reckless dating days, penicillin and Perinate 200 cured just about anything. Reluctantly, I am on my way to shop at Longs Drugs—pharmacy section. Even then, I could never figure condoms out, get them on right, nor did I really comprehend their purpose. I never got laid until I was 21 and then I paid for it—a call girl in the Soho District in London.
A goal of the book is to make people smile and laugh because if we can't laugh at what's happening to us, we will turn angry and bitter--not good qualities for singles trying to attract a mate.
This book is unique because it's based on a man's personal dating experiences, by a regular guy who in 1993 owned a delicatessen, Tutor and Spunky's Deli in Dana Point, California, who struggled to make ends meet and who's spent more time with his face down in the dating trenches than most normal folks spend in church in a lifetime.
