Women looking for a Mr Right should give up after 30 and settle for a Mr Second Best or a Mr Right Now.
Lori Gottlieb, author of Marry Him: The Case for Settling for Mr Good Enough, which is published in the UK next week, believes women who refuse to commit unless they find a man with whom they feel a deep, romantic love are consigning themselves to a lonely future.
\”The theme of holding out for true love (whatever that is – look at the divorce rate) permeates our collective mentality,\” writes Gottlieb, a 40-year-old single mother who now admits she wishes she had \”settled\” for any of the \”perfectly acceptable but uninspiring\” men she rejected during her search for the perfect man.
Called \”satisfacting\” and we all do it all the time.
“Satisficing”, I think Tim.
Ha. Out-pedanted the pendant!
