I love self-help books. I think it is an occupational hazard. I put together a list of relationship self-help books for single moms who took the Are You Ready for a Relationship Quiz. Because of that, they are organized into categories based on how ready you are to date.
If dating is the last thing on your mind the first section is for you. Whether you think you will ever date again or not these books will help you be the best you that you can be.
