When Kerri Sackville began dating again after a long marriage, she made every mistake known to womankind. She swiped right on scammers and fakers, spent weeks fruitlessly texting, agreed to long dates with the wrong men, and got involved with hot messes and commitment phobes. She also met amazing men and went on sensational first dates, and learned how to navigate the minefield that is dating in midlife.

Out There: A survival guide for dating in midlife is the essential book for any woman jumping on the rollercoaster of midlife dating. Kerri may not be able to find you the man of your dreams, but she will help you survive the ride with your dignity and sanity intact. And you will definitely laugh a lot along the way. Swipe right on Out There, and enjoy the ride!
