Chad Stone is a dating success story. He got divorced after 25 years of marriage and bravely entered the world of modern dating. He embraced his new single life and began to learn everything he could about dating, relationships, and finding love again.Mr. Stone interviewed single adults of both sexes to get insights about what works and what doesn't work when searching for a romantic partner. He researched online dating, and he helped other single adults write effective online dating profiles. As part of his research, he attended dating events including “speed dating” evenings and dating mixers. His research and personal dating experience became the basis for his humorous memoir, Confessions of a Middle-Aged Babe Magnet: One Man's Brave Adventure into Dating Again in the 21st Century. Stone frequently appears as a guest on radio and TV shows to discuss dating and relationships. He brings much-needed humor and common sense to finding love and keeping the romance alive in a loving relationship. He is a frequent contributor to a wide variety of online and print publications, and he has also served as a featured “Advice from Men” contributor to datingwithoutdrama.com.“Relationships are supposed to be fun,” says Stone. “Looking for the love of your life is also supposed to be fun. I am constantly looking for the humor and the lighter side of dating and relationships, and I encourage everyone to do the same. Going on a first date—or going on a date night with your spouse—should be an enjoyable experience. If it feels like a chore or it feels like work, you're not doing it right. You need to lighten up and enjoy the moment.” Chad Stone shares his own personal brand of dating and relationship advice (often humorous) on his blog, http://middleagedbabemagnet.blogspot.com/ and on his website at www.middleagedbabemagnet.com. He owns a successful marketing and public relations business. He lives with his wife (who he met on a popular online dating site) in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Confessions of a Middle-Aged Babe Magnet is a humorous memoir that tells the story of one man's quest to learn the dating skills necessary to find the last love of his life. But Confessions of a Middle-Aged Babe Magnet is also a self-help book, because Chad Stone uses his real-life experiences to illustrate a series of “Babe Magnet Rules” that provide insightful advice on how to find, woo and win a modern woman.As the story begins, Chad Stone is newly divorced after a long marriage, and he is admittedly clueless about dating in the 21st century. He laments that he doesn't know if the old rules still apply. Are men still expected to ask women out? Is it OK for a man to initiate a kiss without getting slapped with a harassment lawsuit? And what's all the fuss about online dating? With a refreshing tongue-in-cheek, self-deprecating attitude, Mr. Stone fancies himself a “middle-aged babe magnet in training” and pens his first Babe Magnet Rule: “To be a Babe Magnet, you have to believe you are a Babe Magnet.” It's not a short or simple journey, because Stone has a lot to learn about women. Stone writes about everything from the best way to approach a woman in public to speed dating and relationship breakups. His observations about online dating are hilarious—although sometimes politically incorrect. (Crazy cat ladies might take offense.) Stone may step on a few toes, but his witty barbs are right on target. He also has a vivid imagination, which he shares freely. Some of the best chapters of the book take place solely in Stone's mind.Initially, women may balk at being privy to the uncensored thoughts of a single man. But Stone pulls women in with honest advice and an endearing vulnerability. Any woman who ever wanted to know “What is he thinking?” will be truly enlightened by reading Confessions of a Middle-Aged Babe Magnet.In the end, despite the hilarious comments and the Middle-Aged Babe Magnet persona that Stone wears as protection from female rejection, the author is a true romantic. He discovers that the realm of dating is one of the last bastions of old-fashioned values, where men are the hunters and women are the prize to be won. By the middle of the book, Mr. Stone has discovered what we've known all along: he doesn't want to be a Babe Magnet at all—he wants desperately to fall in love one last time.Spoiler alert: The book ends with Babe Magnet Rule #92: “A Babe Magnet knows when to stop chasing Babes and commit himself completely to the woman of his dreams.” You can't help but smile and say, “Atta boy, Chad.”
