Truth is, they are all kind of scared of me. I’m Texas tough, but I have a heart that wants to pour out my love on the right man, and my own heart is dry and getting brittle. I need the love of a good man. Help me, please. I can drive, whip, and brand cattle, but I am at a loss on how to get a man.Jacklin runs the biggest cattle ranch in the county, but she's beginning to want a family of her own. She turns to an advice column she finds in the paper.
Alone in Austin
Dear Alone in Austin,
You have got a problem. Men don’t want to be branded by a strong woman. They need to see that you’re soft and frilly at heart and that you need a man to take care of you. I admit, you’d be a tough one for a man to want to walk down the aisle with. You didn’t say, but are you pretty in any way?
Here’s my advice. Try throwing away your whip and taking off your chaps and wear a womanly dress. Don’t yell and try speaking in a quiet, demure voice with words that would make a man feel like he was a king. And of course, we all know that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Forget about driving the beef and work on cooking it.
Yours Truly: The Lovelorn.
Jacklin might just find the love of her life.
