Many, if not most, of the 35 million midlife single people in the United States would like to change their solo status and find loving companions. But how to discover then attract Mr. or Ms. Right when one's dating skills are rusty—or perhaps nonexistent—is often a nerve-wracking, anxiety-making dilemma.
Authors Grigsby and Collins come to the rescue with this how-to manual for mastering the midlife dating game, with insights into the new rules of engagement, changed communication styles and ways to create a personalized game plan for finding love.
They point out that the qualities desired in mates by younger people, solid income, parenting potential, etc., may not be criteria appropriate for those at midlife, when friendship, intellectual companionship and lifestyle similarities may be more welcome attributes. Interspersed with the inspiring stories of 400 single people who became successful players in the midlife dating game, Love at Second Sight offers readers tips, advice and guidance so they too can become winners.
Nancy W. Collins, author of Women Leading: Making Tough Choices on the Fast Track (Viking Penguin, 1988) and Professional Women and Their Mentors (Prentice-Hall, 1988), has appeared on many television programs, such as the Today Show and Evening Magazine. She is listed in Who's Who in America and lives in Menlo Park, California.

A single father of one daughter, the Nob Hill Gazette in San Francisco, where he resides, has named him one of the top 50 bachelors over the age of 50.
