A true story. : After being widowed at forty eight, Rose D'Alisio was forced to start a new life for herself and her family. She felt she was too young to be old and too old to be young, but she knew that part of her new life would probably include dating at some point. Rose wasn’t too keen on the prospect of it the first time around, but surely dating hadn’t changed that drastically since she was last in it twenty-five years ago, she thought. She thought wrong! It was a jungle out there! The days of romance, flirting, and serendipitous meetings were replaced with the fast-paced, instantaneous-gratification-seeking catalogue shopping for that perfect mate, also known as online dating. Rose was no more prepared for this new world than if she had been left alone in the middle of a dense jungle to fend for herself, battling the heat, the bugs, the carnivorous animals. How did she survive? Humor! That is how this book was born and came alive—Kissing the Frogs: A Widow’s Safari Into the Online Dating Jungle.
