How to Find Your Soulmate in a Soulless World
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
