Have you ever found yourself thinking, “If one more friend gets engaged, I’m going to scream”?
Do the words taffeta and crinoline make you break into a cold sweat?
Does reading the wedding announcements section in the newspaper induce outright hyperventilation?
If so, congratulations! You’ve hit the Panic Years.
The Panic Years mark the point (usually around your twenty-sixth birthday) when your dating agenda fundamentally changes—from dating for a fling to dating for a ring. Suddenly your newly married friends feel more like enemies, weddings become mocking reminders of your own single status, and you contemplate going on a reality TV show to find true love. What’s a girl to do?
In The Panic Years Doree wiil show you how you can win the race to the altar by changing your tactics from Panicked to Proactive—and keeping your sense of humor along the way. You will learn how to:
Cope with Panic by Proxy—pushy friends and parents.
Successfully hunt for PFs (Potential Fiancés).
Project hotness and desirability when you have neither but want both.
Set—and stick to—dating time lines.
Avoid being bitter at your friends’ weddings—and ruining all their pictures with that scowl on your face.
Get the ring and the proposal and seal the deal!
So welcome to the Panic Years! It's a rough ride, but Doree is going to help you get through it!
