How to Find Your Soulmate in a Soulless World

Coming Soon

This is a Memoir on how I found my second wife.  After nearly 25 years my first wife decided we weren't in love anymore and left for California with my best friend.  After a grief recovery class and about 4 years of waiting for her to wake up and come back to me, I finally decided  to move on and find another wife. This is the story of the system I developed that helped me find my soulmate.  It might help you as well if you find yourself  in a similar circumstance.  


My system consists of:


     1)  Developing a Resume

     2)  Researching a mailing list of prospective mates

     3)  Making first contact

     4)  Screening the responders

     5)  Following up with likely candidates

     6)  Making a final comitment
