Question: Who is the intended audience?
Answer: Single senior males and females! (Under 50’s need not apply!) Loneliness is a terrible thing. In my humble opinion it is one of the greatest factors in the ageing process. At 76 I am more agile and ‘alive’ than many 20 years my junior – I believe the principal contributing factor is because over the last 30 odd years my companions have been at least 20 years younger than I. It is also my conviction that this situation applies equally to both male and female.
Q: What is the book about?
A: It is about the methods I have employed to find suitable younger partners during my single years! I have never been comfortable living on my own. After my first marriage break up I formed a relationship with my then 18 year old assistant who eventually became my partner of some 11 years. I was 45! With the greatest respect to my past and present partners – these I believe will remain the happiest years of my life.
Q: Why are you the best person to write this book?
A: I was once described by a TV interviewer “as one of the most fascinating men in the world!” I’m quite sure she was exaggerating or had led a very sheltered life! I have just married my 7th partner! (22 years younger than me) – 5 of my 7 partners have been at least 25 years my junior! – I am 76 years of age. The book not only details my uncensored experiences with my first YOUNG loves, but details many of my exciting encounters since.
Q: How is this book different from other books on this topic?
A: My book pulls no punches and tells it like it is! (Warning – this book may be hazardous to your wealth!) Only the names of my PAST ladies have been changed to protect the innocent (ME!) In the book I try to explore the many options available to a senior in search of a YOUNGER partner! The subject as been treated as taboo by most writers. I am not ashamed of my many ‘affairs’ as I truly believe that it is only by continuing to search that a true ‘treasure’ can be discovered – a lesson I learned in my youth as an archaeologist! Once discovered however it should be nurtured and treasured as the precious ‘relationship’ it truly is!
Q: Is there anything else we should know about this book?
A: When I originally wrote this book 10 years ago (now revised) the sub title was “How to get laid for $17.95!” It does however address a serious problem facing most single seniors! For that reason I have completely rewritten the book to include the more modern methods available like Internet dating etc. Many seniors even today are not comfortable with the Internet and computers and the book therefore provides what I discovered to be a very effective alternative.
