I’m over at Huffinton Post blogger Shirley Maya Tan’s The Art of Fearless Living with an article on being single at midlife.
It has taken me a long time to appreciate being single. Ever since my divorce almost 14 years ago, I have been trying to find that elusive Mr. Right. Not really to replace my Ex (though I longed to make him jealous…as if). But I compared every man I dated to him…as if he were the prototype of Prince Charming.
Many times, especially when something went wrong in the house – blocked up sink, finding a mouse running along my kitchen counter – I was the damsel in distress hoping to be saved.
I wanted a man in my life to share the housekeeping, maintenance and expenses.
Of course there was the intimacy. But that was far from being my top reason. I needed a man to make me feel more alive! I wanted to fall in love again (and still do). I wanted to belong to someone. To fit in a world made up of couples.
I’m offering Missi’s Dating Adventures FREE from April 3-5.
It’s a second edition and I’ve made some fun changes to it.
Writing the second edition was a lot like renovating a house. Walls (chapters) were torn down, and new extensions built. Included in this revised version are the lessons which Missi learned from each dating experience. Surviving disappointments in her love life made her stronger, and the bad dates, the many encounters with Mr. Wrong, gave her more confidence and a better appreciation of who she is and how discerning she is becoming through her dating adventures.
Even if you’ve read the first edition do pick it up and if you’re so inclined, do write a review on Amazon, Goodreads or any other social media.
I will be extremely grateful (Unless of course you trash it! 🙂 )
The book’s available on Kindle but with the free Kindle app you can download it on any reader.
Just make sure you order from your country’s Amazon store!
