With some trepidation, author Sherry Halperin reentered the dating scene in 1994 at age 51, several months after her husband of 26 years passed away. At first she thinks the dating game isn't for her, until she gets set up by a friend and begins to feel some long-lost emotions. Halperin goes on 40 dates, which she finds through web sites like, professional services that cost up to $5000, blind dates, singles parties, and more. Each chapter is a short vignette -- often funny and poignant, sometimes sad, and always candid -- with a humorous caricature of the featured man. Though most of her dates can be considered calamities, with partners such as Moose Hat, Turkey Neck, and Rich Old Man, she also dates several younger "studmuffins," gets hit on by a woman, and even falls in love again. Rescue Me hits a nerve by shelling out the real deal on what being single again truly means. As Halperin continually revises her Perfect Man list, she is transformed from idealist to realist, eventually coming to terms with being single. Meanwhile, she's still tackling her inexhaustible dating options with gusto, humor, and an energy that outpaces any 20-year-old dating enthusiast.

display_descriptionWhen Sherry Halperin lost her husband at age fifty, she wondered if she could ever date again, much less find love. But on her first date a year later, she felt surprisingly invigorated - and sexy - which led to a dating marathon that she recounts with witty banter and self-effacing humor. Rescue Me, He's Wearing A Moose Hat hits a nerve by shelling out the real deal on what being single again means. Halperin cuts to the chase, discounting men she knows won't pan out and sharing her anguish when she bumps up against unrequited love. She tackles her inexhaustable dating options with an energy that rivals any twenty-year-old, and learns what it means to rediscover her single self. Rescue Me, He's Wearing A Moose Hat is a coming of age story of a fifty year old widowed woman who rediscovers who she is by dating forty unusual men.
