Seeking True Love
Oh, you know how it goes....you're looking for love and it seems as though you'll never find "the one." You try matchmaking services, asking your friends about their single friends....some call you back, some don't. The ones that do...well, they either have some kind of attention problem, they can't hold a conversation with you, they mention things like "parole," "living in mom's basement," "restraining orders" or "can I borrow 20 bucks?" Some you meet and actually go out with...hoping against hope that this is "The One." At first glance he seems ok but then he makes weird noises while he eats or tells you he is a Scientologist and your hopes are dashed again. And then, miracle of all miracle, you meet the perfect guy. He's attractive, he has a sense of humor, you like doing the same stuff - he's got it all. You begin daydreaming of your future marriage and adorable children.....and then, he decides that his life is going in another direction and dumps you like a bad habit with a "let's be friends" and it's back to single life. Of course, there are a few, "this is fun for right now but we've got no future" dates in there and a few "he's great but our lifestyles clash" and a few "we'll try this long distance thing" and quite a few, "all I need is my friends, family and cat to be happy." But at long last, you find your true love and all is well and it's so nice knowing he's there and you hope you're one of the lucky ones whose relationship stands the test of time. Now subsitute the guy for childcare and you see that you have to go through all of this rigamaroll AGAIN! Different issues but same game! Well, I am pleased to say that after some crazy transitions in the family, that we are in love again and it feels so right. Cue Lionel Richie. We have found the perfect situation and it's been such a relief. To those of you out there looking...don't give up hope. "The One" is out there.
