Your Guy Is Out There: Online Dating Tips for Women Over 50

Your Guy Is Out There, Online Dating Tips for Women Over 50, brims with the dating perspectives of thousands of women over 50 who have shared their online dating experiences in their comments on my articles in The Huffington Post, AARP, and Maria Shriver.

Your Guy, drew from my twenty-five years working with men in groups to help them resolve their issues. The number one issue was always relationships. Best-selling author John Gray, of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus fame, was so enthusiastic about Your Guy that he wrote the foreword. An article I wrote for The Huffington Post about the importance of emotional honesty in relationships garnered more than 2,100 comments overnight. What’s clear from men’s and women’s evenly divided, diametrically opposing views is the existence of a dating war both sides are losing.

Your Guy, covers all the basics for women and much more. How to write a perfect profile, how to choose appropriate men, 5 critical questions to ask a first date to determine the viability of a second, how a basic emotional vocabulary helps resolve dating problems, why trust and vulnerability begin on a first date, and why typecasting dates is a major mistake.

This book is available as an ebook PLUS an audio version. Just click on the Amazon link for both. There’s a sample chapter in text plus audio where you’ll hear me reading the book.

The Boomer Guide to Finding True Love Online

The Guide brims with the dating perspectives of thousands of boomers who shared their experiences in their comments on my articles in The Huffington Post, AARP, and Maria Shriver. In addition, it features dozens of boomers’ dating stories that demonstrate why a new dating paradigm is sorely needed.

The Guide benefited from my twenty-five years working with men to help them resolve their issues. Best-selling author John Gray, of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus fame, was so enthusiastic about The Guide that he wrote the foreword. An article I wrote for The Huffington Post about the need for emotional honesty in relationships garnered more than 2,000 comments overnight. What’s clear from the men and women’s evenly divided, and diametrically opposing comments, is an undeclared boomer dating war that both sides are losing.

The Boomer Guide covers all the basics, i.e. how to write a perfect profile, and how to choose appropriate dates, but it also includes critical questions to ask a first date that determine their suitability for a second, how a basic emotional vocabulary resolves dating problems, why trust and vulnerability begin, albeit slowly, on a first date, and why typecasting dates is a major mistake.

Act Like a Man

I wrote Act Like a Man because in the words of my best friend, “This is just too good to keep to ourselves.” When eight men sat down for the first time, twenty-five years ago, what became abundantly clear was that none of us had a clue about appropriate male behavior. But we shared a common goal, which was to dig deeper and discover our authentic manhood, and work to become empowered men, which I define as a man who’s aware of his emotions in the moment, and stays in control of them.

Our process was clumsy, and sometimes contentious to near violence. But we learned how to talk to each other from our hearts and not just our heads, a skill that helped us better navigate our relationships with women. We grappled with anger, depression, death, marriage, divorce, dating, relationships, fathers and fatherhood, and more.

The reviews on Amazon speak to why men and women both benefit from reading this book.

“Solin expands our knowledge base of what it means to be a man. His work as an author and speaker over the last two decades has given him unique and powerful insights into the topics that men and women want to better understand…This book better explains the male mind than anything I have read since John Gray’s “Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus.”

“If you want a book you just can’t put down and you love eaves dropping on other people’s lives then this book is for you! Author Ken Solin takes us through the issues of a men’s group he started. We get to read about their biggest life issues and how they come through them together. I’ve never read so much honesty in one book.”

“I started this book in the morning and read straight through. Every man should read this book just to know that there is a way to deal with those raw emotions he’s never been able to admit to himself much less discuss with another…Every woman should read this book to understand what men experience and “be there” in a meaningful way.”
