Author: Morley D. Glicken

Written to appeal to men as well as women, Mature Friendships, Love, and Romance: A Practical Guide
to Intimacy for Older Adults is a serious book about love, romance, intimacy, and sexuality, as well as
friendship and family. It is about what happens when older adults lack close relationships and about
practical ways to address that isolation and loneliness. Through personal stories and vignettes, readers
will see how notions of friendship, intimacy, and love change as we age, what mature love is, and what
factors can make it challenging. Among the topics discussed are late-life divorces and breakups of long-
term relationships; finding new and intimate friendships; resolving problems with adult children that can
emerge when you enter a new, loving relationship; and choosing activities to increase your pool of
potential friends and mates. Internet dating is addressed, as are the general thoughts and actions of
happy people who agree life can start at 60.
