Ok. Ok, "Someday you will meet someone..."; "There are lots of people out there;" "Why don't you go to singles ministry groups at various churches in your area?" These are all nice statements and good advice. But seriously, I think I just need to give up for awhile and get back to being comfortable doing things by myself as an adult and become happy with being single again. I have been there before (happy with being single and just being me) and it hasn't been that long ago.... but I once again let myself get wrapped up in the "wouldn't it be nice" syndrome which leads to wishing my life and sanity away for the sake of a relationship.
Even I tell people, ..."work on your current relationships that are not considered romantic as a way to prepare for your future relationship with the special someone." "Make amends with family members or friendships that you have let pass by the wayside." And I have followed my own advice; I promise these are not empty words I am sharing with you friends that are presently in the same boat. Yet still I search and wander; looking for that possible 'right guy' that will walk into my life and be sent from God. I will know when I meet him, right? Or will I know after getting to know him for years and years and then have this epiphany enlighten him and me like a glow from heaven? I don't know; I give up pretending to know; and I am going to quit trying to figure it out. I have dated, I have tried, I have done it all....I am not closing myself off to a potential relationship, but I think I am done. Yeah, I said it. That's it; I'm done.
