“Finding a man is just like finding a parking spot in New York City. It can be hard and take a while, but you can do it.”—From Chapter One
Ten years of eye-opening experiences on the Christian dating scene equipped Amy Bonaccorso to offer hard-hitting advice that will help you get real, get practical, and get married. As a happily married woman, she knows what works (internet dating), what doesn’t (living a nun-like existence), and gives you the confidence to date strategically with an eye toward marriage. Forget about Prince Charming—he doesn’t exist—but plenty of good men are waiting for a woman like you to throw away the checklist of idealized mate material and settle down with a real man.
This practical and realistic guide for single Catholic women offers you an opportunity for self-assessment (if you want to make a good catch, be a good catch), and takes seriously the importance of marriage as a vocation to be pursued with as much energy as a call to the religious life.
