Format: Paperback
As one who has very recently and very unexpectedly become single in her mid thirties, I have to say this book is refreshingly different from other 'self-help' dating-themed books out there.

You WON'T find reams of inane self-absorbed navel-gazing or self-help blurb; NOR will you find saccharine sweet platitudes. You WON'T be told how to 'settle' either.

What you will find is a collection of real-life experiences from other thirty-something women who have been in exactly the same situation as you now find yourself and, believe me, this is far more valuable.

My advice? Be kind to yourself and buy a copy of this book. You will be pleasantly surprised.

I was very moved by the accounts in this book. It's really useful to get so many different perspectives on marrying late because it's easy to lose sight of the fact that there are many different models of togetherness. The pressing nature of the female bio-clock can sometimes propel women towards unwise choices. Reading this will help them feel empowered. Well done, Annie.

Fascinating to read people's stories about finding love when it's no longer strictuly speaking love's 'young' dream, and I take my hat off to Annie for putting this collection together and linking it so seemlessly. It takes a bit of courage to write this sort of from the heart stuff, and it's great that so many people have been prepared to share their insights and experiences with such candour and eloquence. Love rarely comes when you wish upon a star, a la Disney, but it often does come in the most unexpected ways and sometimes when you've all but given up, as this collection verifies. Great reading whether or not you're still in the market for the elusive Mr. Right.

This is one of those books I couldn't wait to recommend to my friends even before I finished reading it.

I was about half way through when I'd already bought a copy for a friend and promised to lend it to another once I was done!

I was dreading some kind of "10 step plan" with exercises on how to pick up men when I first saw the slightly saccharine cover of this book, but I was pleasantly surprised by its well researched content aimed at 30something women struggling to establish the type of committed relationship they are aiming for.

Filled with encouraging real-life stories of women who found true love (and fathers for their babies) in their late thirties, advice from experienced dating professionals and the hard facts by fertility experts, it makes a really uplifting, multi-faceted read which will increase your confidence about finding your Mr Right. It challenges old behaviour patterns about dating Mr Wrong for too long or looking in the wrong places, and you will emerge feeling more positive about your love life and better equipped for your journey ahead.

The author's personal experience serves as an uplifting example to help remind the reader that fate moves in mysterious ways, and that the only person we can change about achieving a different outcome to our dating experiences is ourselves.

If you are stuck in a pattern of coming across too negative and desperate in dates, this book will show you ways to re-think your approach and remain hopeful and positive.

Highly recommended!

I'm a single (divorced) 33 year old woman with no intention of having children anytime soon (or possibly ever) and read this book with an open mind.

I like that the book is full of real-life womens' experiences that you can relate to rather than the usual dating books by 'experts' that usually conclude that there must be something wrong with you if you are single in your 30s. I certainly found some of the contributions thought-provoking and inspiring. There really is something for every 30-something single woman in this book, whatever your situation.

My only issue with this book is that there are a lot more contributions by long-term unmarried ladies in their late 30/40s with ticking biological clocks than younger divorcees like myself. I mostly skim-read the section about babies (as it's not relevant to me personally) but I do feel that the experiences and advice from these women would be incredibly helpul to other women in that position and I would probably read this section in more depth if I did suddenly find myself wanting to be a mum one day.

In general though, I did find this book helpful and it made me feel much better about my current 'marital status' and hopeful about what the future may hold.

I bought this for one of my "thirtysomething" girlfriends but wanted to skim it first just in case she might take offence in any way. Despite being happily settled with two children of my own I'm not really the author's target market, but I found myself really drawn into it and read it comfortably in two lengthy enjoyable sittings. Anecdotal, informative, sometimes surprising, sometimes very amusing and always captivating. When I finished the book I thought of two more people to buy it for - and one of them was a man. His verdict - he just devoured those honest insights into womens' minds and motivations!
