Know when to say I love you -- Learn to listen -- Get your own life settled -- Does he know what he wants for his life? -- Support his work -- Don't lose yourself -- Be prepared to forgive -- You are the prize -- Recognizing an open door -- Love by existing -- No angry goodbyes -- Be true.
When unlucky-in-love-Gasbarre moves back home to mourn her grandfather's death and take care of her newly widowed grandmother, she learns her grandma's valuable lessons on love and, when she applies them with a nudge from Grandma, she allows herself to fall for a man with an old-fashioned approach to romance.
