Still think the perfect man exists? Lori Gottlieb says to think again.
Lori Gottlieb, author of Marry Him: The Case for Settling for Mr. Good Enough, was on the "Today" show this morning discussing her unconventional dating philosophy.

Gottlieb used a sperm donor to conceive at age 37 since she hadn't yet met "The One." Her plan was to have a baby first, find "true love" later.
Once she gave birth, her outlook changed. She looked at her married friends with small kids, and thought: "All those things that seemed so important when they were dating now had little relevance to their lives. Instead, the idea of choosing to run a household together -- as unglamorous and challenging and mundane as that was -- seemed to be the ultimate act of 'true love.' Why hadn't I looked at marriage that way five years ago?"
