In keeping with this week’s theme – how to meet Mr. Right (not Mr. Perfect) — here’s a book recommendation for you. If you are a woman over age 40 and are interested in attracting a man (or men), you must read “How To Meet A Man After Forty (and other midlife dilemmas solved).”
I liked this book from the Preface. The writer, Shane Watson, provides really good advice, all wrapped up in fun and flirty stories, anecdotes and recommendations, when it comes to dealing with the opposite sex. And, no, it isn’t because by page 27 she’s talking about shopping (though I loved that part).
Whether you are married or not, this book offers some really practical advice for the, ahem, older woman. As I read, I found myself nodding my head, laughing, at a lot of what she preaches — from “know what looks good on you and not just what you want to look good on you” to how to talk to a man.
Know ahead of time that a lot of this is stuff your mother told you but you swore couldn’t be right. And, your feminist side will crucify me later. That’s okay. Cuz, guess what? A spot check with Husband and several other men friends say Watson knows of what she speaks writes.
So, take her advice or not. (You’ll probably have fun reading her stuff anyway.) Don’t worry. The author doesn’t tell you to act dumb or wear mini skirts. In fact, get ready to donate your old leather mini to Goodwill after this book.
Oh, and when Husband saw the book I was reading, he wondered out loud if I was researching for his replacement. No, silly, don’t you want me to continue to try to attract you? I answered. He liked that. Feel free to steal it when you announce to your Husband why you are glued to her pages.
