This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Marrying Her Best Friend

August, 31, 2014

Last weekend, I celebrated this stunning woman’s marriage. And today, for Meeting Men Monday, I’m sharing her love advice.

Molly A

Molly’s family and mine have been close friends since I was two-years-old. As you can see, she was like a big sister to me. She even taught me the importance of cookies as a pre-bed snack:)

Well, after more than twenty-five years, Molly is still the same fun-loving girl, but she’s met her perfect match. She and her husband have been friends for about six years, and didn’t start dating until the last two. For Molly, that was the right route to the alter.

As she explained, “Everyone falls in love differently. For me to trust a guy enough to become his wife, I needed to start with a solid friendship.”

Molly’s husband is quite a man. He had his eye on her for years and moved firmly into the friend zone before they fell in love. He seemed to know that she was a precious gem well worth the wait.

Then – when she did agree to be his wife – he didn’t just sit back and let her shoulder the wedding preparations. They are equals in this merger and he is a talented designer. He did up these gorgeous decorations. I’d say she has a keeper!
