By Barbara Summers with Carey Blakely
An excerpt from “Chapter 1: There’s Always Someone For Everyone”

love advice for womenNot “The One,” but Someone

There’s someone out there for everyone. I truly believe that.

You always have to feel in your heart that you will meet a person who is going to love you for who you are. Now I am certainly not saying there is only one someone out there for you. I don’t believe in the concept of “the one.” You’re probably thinking, evidently you don’t, Barbara, since you’ve kept replacing him over and over again with all these husbands! You’ve had the first “one,” the next “one,” and so forth.

As my parade of husbands demonstrates, there are a lot of potential matches out there—at least for me. Now in all seriousness, let’s get something straight. I am not here to promote the concept of multiple marriages or to say that having one husband for life is not a wonderful path, because it is—as long as it’s built on mutual respect and love. I’m also not here to tell you that you need to get married. What I am here to do is to help you find and/or keep love, whether it’s for the first or the fifteenth time. That’s what I do for a living. That’s my occupation and personal passion.

Sometimes people get caught up in the mentality that if they were in a long-term relationship that didn’t work out—whether it be a marriage or someone they were dating—they don’t want to look for love again because they feel that there is not going to be another who can fill that person’s shoes. I believe there are a lot of choices out there and that it’s up to us to find them.

Why bother with the not-always-easy search? It’s all about love.
