It's Never Too Late To Fall In Love
In their new book “Love for Grown-ups: The Garter Brides’ Guide to Marrying for Life When You’ve Already Got a Life,” the Garter Brides (Ann Blumenthal Jacobs, Tish Rabe and Patricia Ryan Lampl), a sisterhood of girlfriends who wore the same garter at their weddings, have lots of tips for women over forty to meet and marry the man of your dreams, how to have the life you want and the happiness you deserve! Here are their top ten tips:
1. Leave the Past in the Past When you meet someone new, leave any negative feelings or past heartbreaks just where they should be- in the past
2. You Won’t Meet Someone New in Your Living Room. Well, maybe a cute guy will deliver your new sofa, but chances are you’re going to meet someone by getting out there and trying new things- online dating, taking a class, etc. Tell everyone, especially your married friends, that you’re looking to meet someone and ALWAYS go to parties. Because you truly never know.
3. Give the Guy a Chance. When you were twenty your list was 'he must be tall, dark and handsome." Try going against type. It just might be a perfect fit.
4. Look at Blind Date like a First Date. Two of the authors of our book met their husbands on blind dates, and you can too! If you’re not sure you want to sit in a noisy restaurant, go out and do something fun. One of our Garter Brides went to a baseball game, and she and her date each brought a friend. They had a blast and got married one year later.
