I’ve spent my life being an outspoken individual. No mold or in the box life for me! That’s what I thought, until….

NEWS FLASH!!! According to recent accounts, there are 96 million people in America who are single! To put it another way 43% of people over 18 don’t have mates. And yours truly is one of them.

Frankly, being part of the great uncoupled is a horrid proposition. (YES, I get plenty of those!) After my divorce 25 years ago, I was certain wedding bells would be ringing for me within a year. Well, the bells rang for my former husband, but they’ve remained silent for me.

I have no regrets about the dissolution of my 25 year marriage, but being a single woman really sucks. According to the approach put forward by feminists and liberated women, I should be reveling in my freedom. I’m not. Sharing a life with a beloved partner is, for me, one of the greatest blessings on Earth. I wonder how many of the 96 million out there share my view.

So, with this vile statistic staring me in the face, I decided to create a vow to help magnetize my man:
“I'm about to meet my beloved life mate here in Palm Springs.”

I joined Match years ago when I lived in New York. Last night I decided to join again here in Palm Springs. Perhaps going west will do it for me.

Worth a try!
