Dear Dr. Romance:

I'm in my forties, divorced, and debt free. I have a great credit score. My favorite hobby is Amateur Radio. Other hobbies are listening to shortwave radio programs and studying maps.

The down side is that I'm currently a truckdriver. Naturally, everyone thinks that ALL truckdrivers are perverts. Wrong answer! Are all female bosses yuppies or control freaks?

I think I'm a catch, but I'm having a difficult time meeting people.  Bars aren't working, and church doesn't seem to, either. 

Dear Reader:

Wow, a new pickup truck and a great credit score! What a catch! You're right that bars don't work. It's tough for a truck driver, because you're on the road a lot. If you're going to church, make sure you go to coffee hour. Talking to people and making friends is the best way to meet a partner. "The Fine Art of Squirrel Hunting" puts dating into a metaphor you'll understand  and  "Where is Love" will help you restructure your thinking and actions.

Dr. Romance's Guide to Finding Love Today  is exactly what you need to figure out how to meet the right partner.
