The need for loving and being loved by a significant other doesn't diminish with age, but often single older adults don't know how to go about filling that void, or, in many cases, even realize that it exists. Still others have given up on finding that special someone or think they're too old for love. Love & Successful Aging When You're 70+ and Single draws on upbeat, personal stories from individuals in their 70's through 90's who are in exclusive, committed relationships with a significant other while living independently. The true stories are based on surveys sent to retirement communities, senior centers, friends and acquaintenances. What makes Love & Successful Aging When You're 70+ and Single unique among books dealing primarily with sex and the older, single adult is that it addresses the social and emotional needs of those widowed, divorced, or never-married who comprise this specific group, inspiring them to open their minds and hearts to love, joy and companionship.
