Book Review of :  Dating Again: A Guide to Dating Just When You Thought You Were Done



Dating Again by Robert M. Fleisher is the 21st-century bible on how to start dating again after having been absent from the playing field for an extended period of time. It is a book that provides a road map to getting back into the relationship race and what the new rules are in the current era. Fleisher’s book covers all the pertinent areas of re-entering the dating game. The book is also nicely broken up into logical sections each dedicated to a specific challenge faced in today’s dating arena. There are nine (9) sections with interesting titles like, “The How To of Internet Dating, Sex and Dating, Who is Left for You to Date, There’s a first for Everything, Dating, Disease, and Infirmity, and Dating Behaviors." That is a short list of topics covered in Dating Again. Fleisher sprinkles a lot of humor throughout the book to make it more fun to read. There are a lot of scenarios that I’m sure most all of us have faced or will face.

Dating can be a minefield for the newly single man or woman. Thorny questions like what to wear on a date, where to go, who pays? What about how to find that elusive gem of a new partner you are looking for? Fleisher covers how to make navigating the brave new world of Internet match-ups less daunting. How to get over the reluctance to venture into dating again. Why is it so gosh darn hard?

Fleisher's book works at alleviating the fear that is often there when it comes to meeting someone new. The guide debunks the excuses and attempts to ease the burden of re-entering the dating game. It is a book to help you face your fears and set you on the right path in finding that special person in your life.

Fleisher adds a lot of examples of what he is talking about, and many of the examples are hilarious. In one chapter he offers sample internet profiles to use as guides of what NOT to say in yours and who to avoid in your quest for your perfect mate. A statement from the guy’s profile reads, “I watch a lot of TV after hours of watching porn, the latter being my preference.” An entry from the lady’s profile reads, “My champagne glass is always mostly full, and I’m working on that issue at AA.” Those are certainly statements that should provide a clue that those two have issues to be resolved before they can maintain any serious relationship.

The subject matter covers just about everything relative to dating; there is even a chapter on “Astroglide, KY, Viagra… Oh My” and another on “Sexual Injuries.” There is a chapter on “Dating the Dysfunctional,” and one on “The Magic of Dating.” There’s stuff here you won’t find in any other dating book.

At the end of most chapters “Activity Suggestions” are offered that are exercises to help crystallize and make memorable the advice given in the chapter.

The book approaches behavioral strategies for keeping clear boundaries with the various prospective lovers you meet. The book also addresses those transitional relationships, along with the heartbreak of rejection or of premature attachment to potential partners.

In short, Dating Again, will help you make post-divorce, post-widowhood or post-breakup dating less daunting. It might be tough going sometimes, but this book on dating just might help you build a new relationship to make you feel like a teenager again with that giddy “I am in love bliss.” It is an entertaining book that provides many funny anecdotal like tales.

Fleisher's new book is written to help the multitude to feel better about and understand the daunting process of adding that new partner into your life. It is your guide in helping you become better prepared to make wise choices in today’s new dating game.
