"Finally, here's a book that gives 50-plus women practical advice about confidently getting back into the dating game."—Margaret Ancira, Chairwoman, PCA Skin Care
Why do some women always have men in their lives while others struggle to get a date? What is the magic that turns a casual encounter into a promising beginning? Through insights and interviews, authors Barbara Bellman and Susan Goldstein provide helpful and often humorous advice on how women can improve their chances of attracting the opposite sex through the lost art of flirtation.
Flirting After Fifty is not about twirling your hair or batting your eyes. It's not about showing cleavage or playing the coquette. It's about trying to figure out how to be comfortable as a woman of a certain age in the social art of attraction. Flirting is not a commitment. It's an opening you hope will be the beginning that may make the rest of your life an adventure.
Flirting is not a single event but a state of mind. It starts with the first hello and never stops. It's always fun and sometimes romantic. And, most importantly, everyone can do it.
