Dating can be great or it can be the absolute pits, whether you're 17 or 70. The basic story of dating hasn't changed in thousands of years – boy meets girl and they make a connection. So why such sweaty palms if the dating game is so old? No, it’s not because you’re the nerd of the universe and everyone else is way cooler than you are. It’s because the rules have all changed. On top of that, dating can feel really scary because it has to do with big-ticket items: the opposite sex and rejection. Yikes!

Dating For Dummies is your guide to the dating scene if you have never dated, have rarely dated, or if you've experienced a life change and want to start dating again. Whether you're a teenager, young adult, divorced, widowed, or an older adult, this useful reference can help you meet, date, and start a relationship with the person of your dreams.

Discover ways to increase your confidence, polish your social skills, figure out what you want, and find out where the best places are to meet your future mate. Full of essential tips and dating wisdom, Dating For Dummies covers everything a single person in search of a date should know, including

  • Selecting the right place for your first date
  • Finding the best places to meet people
  • Knowing how to protect yourself and understanding the myths and facts about date rape
