Listing Detail Tabs

Newly single - again - John Womersley takes control in matters of the heart and joins not one but two introduction agencies. Amid the pleasures and perils of the mature-age singles scene, he discovers much about women - and even more about himself.

This wickedly funny kiss-and-tell account of the business of finding a new mate delivers a rare and unrepentantly male perspective on sex and romance.

Reader review from

"John Womersley has done well with this book. In a world where 40% of marriages fail and single professional men and women begin again, John Womersley gives us the benefit of his experiences in the world of dating agencies. His daring do, have a go, pragmatic personality ensures that he tries and tests every available opportunity. He explores without fear and values the learning. His work is punctuated by enjoyable reflections on what he has learnt, the nature of the dating agency clients (women and men), himself and the wants and dislikes of the fifty something male stage of life. He displays insights that the 50 something year old males have had time to form. These insights enable him to navigate his way across turbulent water, avoid submerged dangers and enjoy the ride. No emotional blackmail for him. He comes to be able to predict the agendas of each new potential partner and is able to stay a step ahead.

The book is very funny. The humour is from a blokes perspective but not rough. There was rarely a page that did not give me a laugh and sometimes two or three laughs to a page.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants a laugh, or who is male and at the forty to fifty stage in life or those who intend to get there."
