Cheers to comedian Kim Coles for not settling and waiting for true love. The Living Single actress got engaged at age 53 to Reggie McKiver, announcing the good news on Facebook:

“I am beyond thrilled to announce that I am engaged to a wonderful man. He is kind, loving, funny, smart, driven…”

The stand up comedian, who also authored the 1997 self-help book, “I’m Single, But It’ll Cost You: Single Life According to Kim Coles,” went into detail on how she found the man of her dreams, demolishing all statistics of marrying late in life:

“I want to tell you how he found me. I got real focused on what I wanted in my personal life and the type of man I wanted to spend my life with. I like to have this conversation around finding your GPS or engaging your GPS, your divine GPS…I’ve made it mean something completely different. Gratitude, passion and success… See last year, I got really focused on the destination I wanted to have in my personal life. And by being really focused with that and setting my destination in that place, I was able to be in alignment with the man who showed up and the man who said I’m there too and I want that too… I’m telling you I am beating every statistic. I am 53 years old and we are not supposed to get married after what 20, 25, 30 maybe? Yeah… that’s not true. I don’t follow any of those rules. I’ve never thought any of those rules applied to me and those rules don’t apply to you either.”
