...okay more than half, more like 60%. I would say meeting the right guy is about 60% luck, 20% timing, and 30% patience.
It's about not settling.
It's about eliminating immediately the people that would waste your time.
It's about sticking to the standards you've created for yourself.
You see...we all get a little bit lonely sometimes and we tend to cling onto the very next person that makes a move. Building a human connection isn't that hard people, why do we tear up when Mufasa was cruelly murdered by his evil jerk brother? A freaking cartoon lion on the television screen! Because we're humans, we're compassionate, understanding, empathetic, loving creatures...for the most part. If we can hurt for a cartoon lion, we can definitely and easily develop feelings for another human being that may not necessarily be meant for us. Therefore, we must not even allow those people into our lives or else we'll be fighting a battle that's was long over from the get go. Then we'll waste the next couple of years of our lives trying to love and stick to a person we quite don't understand nor get along with.
Years wasted, time wasted, love wasted.
While I was single last year, did I get lonely at times? Sure. Could I have called up a guy to find temporary comfort? Sure. Did I? Absolutely not.
People may try to hook you up with others. People may try to convince you that you and so-and-so are so perfect together. You may try to convince yourself. But if that person does not meet your criteria, don't even think about it!
Follow your own heart, march to the beat of your own drum... this is your life.
Be patient, have faith, and PRAY. LOL. He's out there somewhere, I promise.
Just remember having a connection with someone is easy, wanting to spend the rest of your life with them is hard. So before you decide to commit or give your heart to someone, could you imagine potentially loving this person to pieces fifty years down the line? If the answer is yes, give it a shot. If no, say bye-bye.
I really liked this song when I heard it for the first time last summer. Listening to it again while in love with the ong gia gives it a whole new dimension. Oh how beautiful is it that love can change the way we see the world...everything in life seems so much richer.
