What is it like out there on the dating merry-go-round when you are older, you have children and you are divorced? Three women show us the way. Helen, a midwife and mother of four girls, found her new man on the Internet. She blushes like a teenager when she gets text messages from him, much to the embarrassment of her daughters. In a thoroughly modern reversal of roles, her daughter Charlotte advises her to “go away for the weekend and get on with it." Will Helen's new boyfriend turn out to be the one, and what happens when she finds out he has another woman? Judith, mother of three, leads a glamorous single life in Leeds. As a regular party goer and gregarious host, she ought to be inundated with dates; but is her image as a strong, independent woman scaring them away? Meanwhile, Karen is beginning to question her choice of men. ”I’m not meeting the right type of men; they just do not want you for you,” she claims, vowing to stop going to her local nightclub week in and week out.
