Advice for the “other” woman

How to Survive Your Boyfriend’s Divorce
Loving Your Separated Man Without Losing Your Mind
Todd and Dormen

I am trying to keep an open mind and I really don’t want to be the crusty old lady that believes that one shouldn’t date married people, but is this really a big information need? The librarian in me thinks that maybe it does address a specific information need, but the woman in me just says ewww!   For what it is worth, the book is a typical discussion using anecdotes to illustrate situations ranging from neediness, his kids, judgmental friends etc.  Regardless of your feelings, it still needs to be weeded as it does contain legal some state specific legal information as part of the appendix. I guess I am glad that I am old and married since I find the idea of dating someone with so much personal baggage too difficult and exhausting–even if Sally Jessy Raphael endorses this book.
