Chemistry and timing – they’re tough to get right at the same time in relationships

Robert James pens his journey in the modern dating world in his both insightful and hilarious new book, “NEXT! The Search for My Last First Date” (published by Xlibris). This collection of stories follows the amusing experiences found in a naïve middle-aged man’s quest for love in the realm of internet dating and social media. Sincere, uproarious and a tad bit profound, this book is bound to get readers entertained with its odd blend of intrigue and laughter.

This humorous, light-hearted collection of romantic accounts about one divorced, middle-aged man’s quest for the next love of his life shares his experiences through more than fifty stories. Each story is usually his first date with a different woman that follows his interactions with personalities and situations he was not quite ready for. It illuminates how much of dating has changed – social media, third date rule, online matchmaking sites – as compared to how dating went before technology.

“Chemistry and timing – they’re tough to get right at the same time in relationships,” author James explains, “Dating is an adventure, but the highs and the lows, the funny and sad, and the efforts are worth it in the end when you find someone special.”

Devilishly funny, magnetic and strangely insightful, “NEXT! The Search for My Last First Date” is an absorbing read that strives to put a smile in the reader’s face from the first page until the last.
