Are you an aging Cinderella or Cinderfella sitting at home, lamenting your fate, feeling older and alone? Fear not, graying friends. Your bespectacled fairy godmother has arrived to assist you.

At age 71, after years of research and personal transitions, author Sharon P. S. Marx dispels the myths and unlocks the mysteries about dating later in life. With wit, candor, and a lighthearted conversational style, Marx urges her contemporaries to get up, get off the computer, and get out into the real world, sharing specific steps that can lead to a personally gratifying relationship at any age.

Marx believes that companionship never grows old and that being alone is a choice, not a consequence of aging.

Her advice? "At any time in your life, you can make a new choice. And when you do, the results can be lovely."
