Newly Married 55-Year-Old Defies Statistics
Despite statistics that said otherwise, Suzette Vearnon, known as Author Suzette R. Hinton, married the love of her life on her 55th birthday. She is releasing a new *free* audio, "How I Changed The Way I Dated and Got The Man."
And with that as her rallying cry, this woman over 40 squared her shoulders and marched into a landscape unlike one she had ever known. Cell phones, texting, sexting were not part of the dating landscape in her day. "It was very overwhelming,"
Nevertheless, there was something about online dating that she found intriguing. "Scarier than anything was putting up my profile.

No matter how young or how old, whether your notion of dating is a man coming calling (an old Southern tradition) or a Skype chat with someone who lives in another state, Love will find you if you're open."
When asked what her highest hope is for her newfound sense of purpose evident in her free audio and upcoming virtual workshop titled ENOUGH, she replied with introspective clarity, "I know that what happened for me, and I repeat for me, though it's nothing short of a miracle in my eyes, didn't just appear with a cloud of smoke. I had to put myself out there. Not the banging-my-head-
And it worked.
