Before joining Love U, I was really at a loss. I had ended a 16-year very difficult marriage because I knew I needed to in order to attract the love of my life. I had romantic dreams and the reality of the dating scene was a wake-up call, I don’t think I have to explain to you. We all joined for a reason. A man with answers about men! That is the “golden ticket”!

In November, I got a message from a really cute, 49 year-old. I said, well, what the heck! We met at the same coffee place and I thought, he’d gorgeous! (Robert Redford type, with light brown hair and green eyes, my Fav!) Really sweet! At first, he was a bit serious, but I could tell a nice guy. His personality didn’t knock me off my socks right away, but I had a feeling he was just nervous, as was I. I was very guarded. We left the coffee shop and he grabbed me and kissed me on the mouth quickly, like a caveman. I thought it was soooo cute!

Anyway, we went on another date to dinner this time, two days later. It felt good and right and I could see he was excited about me, this time in the parking lot, he grabbed me and kissed me longer, trying to let me know how he was feeling and said, I’m not ready to let you go, so we went dancing on a Wednesday night! We had the best time and continued to talk through the night. He could tell how nervous was about getting too close, wary…and he said so. I admitted, to my surprise…I am scared to death to trust someone and he said so sincerely, “Let me protect you.” You can imagine how sweet I thought it was. Cut to New Year’s Eve: We are at his house in Vermont, hanging with his friend, and he’s grabbing me and yelling, “look what I caught on Plenty of Fish!” It’s been really wonderful and things are going in a steady and positive progression.

I remember Evan’s wisdom to be as easy-going as possible, open and non-reactionary. There have been times when I sent him a text message telling him what a wonderful time I had with him and he didn’t send the perfect response back.

In the past, I would’ve reacted very insecurely, but with patience, his phone call later in the day would prove to be sweet and when he asked me when he could see me again.

I’m so glad I didn’t give up, no one should ever give up. You have to kiss A LOT of toads to find your prince.

All the best!
