When I was over 40 and not married, I felt like I was the only single person around. It seemed like all my friends, family members and even neighbors were married. I felt odd and inadequate when I went to make large purchases such as a house or car. I felt I needed a partner to travel or go to a fine restaurant. It is at about that time when I decided to write a book that would educate myself and others in how to live life fully at this stage of life. Whether you are single because you were never married, divorced, or widowed Surviving Being Single Past 40 offers you valuable information to empower you during this time.
