Dear Dr. Romance:

I am a 51 year old divorced Mom who recently began seeing someone. I like him and want to pursue this relationship, but I don't want to keep making the same mistakes! Some people say "be yourself" other say "don't do too much too soon, keep him wondering"...and I am  CONFUSED!

I have tried to find your book as an ebook so I can read is on my eBook reader, but I can't locate it  anywhere. Can you tell me where I can purchase it as a digital download?

Dear Reader:

I wish I could offer you The Unofficial Guide to Dating Again as a digital ebook, but it doesn't exist yet. You can get it in paperback, by following the link.  I'm working on getting the rights back from the publisher so I can re-issue it. In the meantime, there are a lot of articles on my website that can help you, like: "Guidelines for Successful Dating" "How to Avoid Loving a Jerk" "How to Keep Yourself Out of a Violent Relationship"  "Keys to a Happy Relationship"  "Love and Chemistry"  and  "The Fine Art of 'Squirrel Hunting'" 

Unofficial Guide
