DALLAS, Mar. 27 /Christian Newswire/ -- Every seven seconds in America, someone is turning fifty and facing the second half of life. Statistics show that at least half of those in this demographic will experience this phase of life as a single. The majority of unmarried seniors have had singleness thrust upon them through the death of a spouse or an unexpected divorce, and they are seldom prepared to live alone. In her new book, Savvy Senior Singles, author and conference speaker Samantha Landy presents an honest, no-nonsense guide for victorious living as an older single. With humor and candor, she equips readers to become "savvy senior singles"—intelligent, unmarried people over the age of fifty who experience life in all of its fullness.
Samantha's timely advice is informed by her own personal experience. After losing her beloved husband of twenty-five years, she began searching for books that addressed the issues she was facing. "There were countless books written for singles in the 30-50 age group, but the selection for 'the 50+ set' was disappointing at best—mostly empty promises presented by people who don't have a clue what it's like to walk in the shoes of a single living in a world that idolizes youth and denies the validity of the natural aging process," she recalls.
Savvy Senior Singles inspires readers to embrace "their best years" with hope, laughter, and a sense of adventure. "To age gracefully with humor and a good attitude or not—that's the dilemma," Samantha stresses. "Sometimes you must simply choose to be happy." These practical issues include:
- Skyrocketing STD rates in senior singles
- Prenuptial agreements for senior singles who remarry
- Financial security and protection from identity theft
