When Amazon’s #1 mate seeking, new release author, Karen Stanley set out to share her personal story and advice with others in Becoming Mrs. Stanley, her hope was they’d find the same success she did. Little did she know, it would turn into a global conversation with fans around the world.
I’m an entrepreneur, former single mom, professional Mezzo-Soprano, yogi, hiker, Amazon addict, laugh-way-too-loud-er, and I’ve spent over 2 decades in marketing. For many years, I attracted men (teachers) who didn’t want what I wanted. I knew intellectually that if you want to find true love, you needed to become the person you wanted to be, but I had a hard time staying on track. So I created systems to help me do just that. When I realized that some of the methods I used to helped me and finally attract Mr. Right were strategies, I started writing my book, Becoming Mrs. Stanley, and now I’m a published author!
Even though being a single mom raising two children was challenging, I cherish every moment of those years when it was just the three of us. I had almost given up on finding true love, and for two years I didn’t date and had no interest in finding love again. I worked hard and spent time with my little buddies. During that time, we went on many fun road trips visiting sisters and cousins and created great memories we’ll never forget! Here’s my three-pack in 2010 at Yellowstone National Park.
Even though being a single mom raising two children was challenging, I cherish every moment of those years when it was just the three of us. I had almost given up on manifesting my soulmate, and for two years I didn’t date and had no interest in finding love again. I worked hard and spent time with my little buddies.

Jenny married the man of her dreams on July 13, 2013, in beautiful Montana. This was a defining moment in my life because I had a real love revelation. She was a single mom, and she was able to find true love again after divorce, so it’s possible for everyone – even me.
The groom’s father gave a toast and said, “You think you love her now, just wait 47 years and you will love her more than you could ever imagine.” The groom’s parents have been married since 1966, and they are still truly, madly deeply in love! At that moment I knew that finding true love was possible, and it was all I needed to get focused and find ways to become the person I wanted to attract.
The first step I took was making a list of everything I wanted to do to help me feel good about myself. I call it My BOSS List. Then, I wrote My Soulmate List of everything I wanted in a husband in the notes in my phone. Then I got busy!
My last first date was December 7, 2014. The last entry into my Soulmate list was proximity. I wrote My soulmate lives within 20 minutes of me. John sent me his address that morning and his house was exactly 20 minutes from mine. I’m not making this up. This is not a great picture, but it’s the only one we have of our actual first date! I was too nervous to snap great selfies! One of his friends texted him during the game asking how it was going, and he sent him this picture. His friend responded, “You’re done.”
Two days later, he told the cab driver he was going to marry me in Maui.
And that he did, my friends. That he did.
I help singles (that means you!) find true love and find the reasons to find love again within themselves. What I practiced and what I focused on between the wedding (July 13, 2013) and my last first date (December 7, 2014) is a strategy! If you want to find love after divorce and attract Mr. Right, you need a strategy to believe it’s possible for you, and a strategy for becoming the person you want to BE. That is what attracts the person you’ve always wanted to be WITH. If I attracted a wonderful husband using these strategies, then you can find love, too!
The BEST Day: February 5, 2016. I married my soul mate on the beach in Maui. If I finally attracted Mr. Right using these strategies, while raising two kids alone, then you can find love, too!
