I spent 30 years wondering why every other woman got to be loved—except me.
I had great friends, nice stuff, and a successful career, yet when it came to having a relationship with a man who made me feel secure and adored—it never happened. Not once.
After years of blaming men, the world, the women’s movement, the size of my thighs, my intellect, and my narcissistic mother, I finally did a deep dive into the only thing I had any control over—ME.
It took a few years of difficult inner work, but in 2006 I finally found love—and I did it online. I walked down the aisle for the first—and last!—time at the age of 47.
What finally allowed me to break free from my perpetual singledom?
I accepted that I was the common denominator in my decades of dramas, disappointments, and sad stories…and this was actually really good news.
Because it meant I had the power to change things. I had the power to chip away what wasn’t working so that I could attract what I really wanted and needed in a relationship.
I now get to share my life with a kind, strong, loving man—who digs me just the way I am. He lets me be me, while occasionally reminding me that I can be better. (Having that mirror held up is a positive part of a healthy relationship, don’t you think?)
After all these years together, after being my rock through the death of both my parents, after starting a new life together in another country, I still have occasional days when I wonder if he’s going to break up with me. That’s what happens after 30 years of being single. The old stuff can be hard to shake.
You see… I have lived your story.
I know firsthand how we stand in our own way, place so little value on our own loveliness, underestimate and misinterpret men, trust myths that only get us in trouble, follow outdated rules, and hide behind our fears instead of boldly and fearlessly going after the love we deserve.
I finally learned how to LOVE and BE LOVED.
And because of this, I finally have the kind of security and happiness I thought was reserved for other women. I walk my talk every day as I help women do what I finally did, but in a MUCH simpler and faster way!
