Today almost half of the population over 40 is not married. Now whether this high number reflects singles who were never married, divorced, or widowed isn’t it time we said it was OK to be single, no matter what age you are? The book "Surviving Being Single Past 40: Living Life Fully, With or Without a Partner" does just that. It provides the reader with all the information necessary to feel confident in their life no matter what their marital status. It tells the reader how to do whatever they want to do whether they are married or not.

There are many books that say how to get married in 30 days or how to dress to attract. This book takes a different stance. It tells the reader that their current marital situation is OK. It lets the reader know how to be self-assured and confident in who they are today. Then, and only then, can they mindfully decide if they want a partner, the qualities they want in that partner and how to find that special person. All of which is described in this book. Information and affirmations provide to the reader with the tools to create a happy satisfying life through their dating or non-dating times. These tools help the reader decide if they want a life partner, and how to deal with the emotions that this all evokes, including going on dates and handling rejection.

Many single people say: “I want to buy a house, but I don’t know how.” Or “I don’t know how to handle a pushy car salesperson.” This book empowers the reader with information on how to do it all on their own. Not only will they learn how to buy a new house, a new car, or whatever they previously thought was beyond their power, they will also learn what to do if they get a shoddy deal.
