You are not too old.
It is not too late.

Your grownup love story is waiting…

Hi, I’m Bobbi Palmer

Founder of Date Like a Grownup

This is me after becoming a First-Time Bride in 2006. I was 47 years old.

Being a woman dating after 40 can suck. I’ve lived it all. Wondering why everyone else gets to be loved but you. The years without being touched by a man. The men who lie, manipulate and disappear. The narcissists and the too-nice guys you wish you could like. Being obsessed, hating men, hating yourself, giving up. Trying to believe that you don’t need a man to be happy but, in your heart, knowing that’s a lie.

After 25+ years of that bullshit, I got honest with myself. I was the common denominator in my decades of sad stories. It took me a few years of sometimes difficult inner-work, but I finally learned how to love myself and men. I also learned how to Be Loved. (Yes, we have to learn that too.)

I’m so happy you’re here. When you accept my help, you will learn what I did, but in a MUCH simpler and faster way! I’ve helped thousands of women around the world write their grownup love story. Now it’s your turn. Let’s get this party started! Read more…
