REDDING, Calif. -

No one is ever too late for love, at least not for 70-year-old Donna-Rae Standley, who got engaged for the first time.

Standley said she finally found her prince charming in Ross Carter, who she met about three months ago. Within three days, Standley said she and Carter were engaged.

"It was like out of a storybook… Wham!,” said Donna-Rae. "I thought, my gosh, this is the man I’ve been waiting for, this is an intelligent man without even knowing it, I  knew he had tolerance and patience."

The date for their wedding has not been set yet.
