An Empty House: You never know what tomorrow will bring. This is a personal essay about coping with and moving on with the “New Normal”. 

The Lost Love: Rejected for her Mexican heritage by the teen-age boy she had a crush on, Lindsay put it behind her. So how come, when they wind up at the same college years later, Lindsay can’t get over her anger at the humiliation? And will Brad ever forgive himself for his callous behavior?

The Dead Guy in the Park: An almost end-of-shift call leads a paramedic and her partner to a dead guy in the park. All she has to do is pronounce him so that the coroner can come get the body. What could possibly go wrong?
*includes a bonus Spanish edition El Difunto del Parque translated by Marianna Carranza

Rekindled: Cynthia and Daniel were college sweethearts torn apart by tragedy. A lifetime later they bump into each other again — Is this their second chance at love?

 A Date with Mistletoe: Sometimes you find that it’s the “Unanswered Prayers” that are the best things to ever happen. When confronted by the man of yesterday alongside the man who means the world to her, there is no doubt in Rachel’s mind that she has the best.

 He is My Brother…: Who can help save the life of a beloved family member? Prayers, hopes and a personal plea for help.

Always, One More Time: Disowned by her parents because of an interracial love affair, Callie Sanders is left alone to raise her son after his father, Jimmy Bernerd, dies fighting in a war on the other side of the world. Desperate to give her son a family she goes to the Bernerd household — what she finds is a second chance at love, acceptance, and family.

Online Dating for Boomers

A Boomer’s Guide to Online Dating
Veteran Shares Experience-Based Tips to Avoid Scams
– and Worse

Nearly half of all single baby boomers are dating, and many of them are swelling the profiles of online matchmaking websites with names like SilverSingles, SeniorPassions and dating.aarp.org.

Match.com, one of the largest dating sites for people of all ages, says its baby boomer clientele has grown 90 percent in five years, with a quarter of its 15 million users ages 50 to 65.

“Older people love a good romance as much as 20-somethings, and many of us still get just as love-drunk as we did when we wore size 32 Levis with no Expanda-Waist,” says Charles W. Massie, a baby boomer who wrote about his online dating experience in a new novel, “Stains on the Gavel” (www.starshowpublications.com).

“But you’ve really got to be careful, whether you’re a woman or a man. A lot of women my age complain the men they meet haven’t changed at all in 50 years – they want to skip the coffee and head straight for the bedroom. My experience was even worse!”

Massie says the woman he met went to great lengths to make him believe she was completely smitten.

“Plain and simple – I quit thinking with my brain,” he says.

The woman ended up setting him up in an elaborate ruse that resulted in him going to jail on false charges and her in possession of everything he owned.

Whether you’re meeting people through social media networks, dating sites or through online advertising, Massie offers these cautionary tips for fellow boomers.

•  Don’t use Craigslist as a dating website. Just don’t. People advertising on Craigslist haven’t been vetted by anyone – you have no idea if anything they’re saying is true, Massie says. Several people have died at the hands of those they met on Craigslist, and it’s not just women who are vulnerable. In 2012, Troy LaFerrara was killed by a young couple he met through a “companionship” ad. “The ‘black widow’ who snared me I met through Craigslist,” Massie says.

•  If it looks too good to be true, beware! Let’s face it, as we age, we want to believe we’re still the hot young stud or studette that we were in our prime, but we’re not, Massie says. If some beautiful woman or extraordinarily handsome man suddenly becomes completely enamored of you, be wary. Yes, it does happen sometimes, but we become extremely vulnerable when we want something to be true so badly that we ignore all signs to the contrary.

•  Don’t rush into cohabitation. If you have an independent lifestyle – your own home, etc. – don’t be tempted to move right in with your new honey. Think about the advice you’d give your own kids or grandkids! Once you’re sharing an abode, that person not only has access to all of your personal belongings, computer, accounts, etc., he or she also has more control if you’ve moved into their place. If you invite him or her to move in with you, it can be very difficult to remove the person if you realize you’ve saddled up with a freeloader.

Many of the safety and other concerns associated with meeting people online are the same no matter what your age, Massie notes.

“But when you’re older, you may be lonelier or less secure about how attractive you are to the opposite sex, and that leads you to do irrational things,” he says. “Enjoy the person, get to know them, but stay true to yourself and adhere to commonsense rules.”

About Charles Massie

He’s also a prolific writer and owner of Starshow Publications. “Stains on the Gavel,” www.starshowpublications.com, continues the story of his online dating and criminal justice nightmare, which begins in his first novel, “Pinned: A Kentucky True Crime.”

Pussycat Tales

You never really own a cat, but they do rule the household.

Holiday Happiness

Flashy gifts can come with hefty price-tags, but it’s the memories that are priceless.

Not Alone

Sometimes forgiveness seems impossible, but then so is turning your back on a friend.

I Swear That Raccoon Just Knocked on the Door

Take one city girl and send her camping in the woods for a tale of humor and triumph.

Stormy Weather

The ominous skies and howling winds of a hurricane lead to an unexpected and warmhearted friendship.

A Mother’s Love

When her child is hurt, there isn’t anything a mother wouldn’t do to make it better.

More Than a Friend

Best friends become lovers and share a lifetime together.

The Meeting

From a random meeting in the south during WW2 to a marriage and love that lasts for an eternity.

The Vacation

An erotic respite was just what she needed, the man who delivered was what she wanted.

Review

Nice variety of short stories!  Chelle Cordero really knows her cats, or should I say the cats who own her. And The Meeting is sweet, tender, and a true love story.    ~Marta Gruenwald
