Will I ever find that one person.
I stopped trying about a year ago and just let myself be now. I'm honestly a lot happier than I was when I was pressing to find that special person, going on dates every week, spending tons of $$, putting up with busloads of crap and deceit. Now I focus on being a good father to my daughters and living life as happily as I can for us. Do I hope that that certain woman will come into my life? You bet. But I'd rather it happen naturally or just not at all at this point.
I want to be all sappy here and say one day you and a barista at a non chain coffee place will lock eyes and realize you like the same music, authors and cartoons.
But, I also know there are no guarantees.
But, also, The One and I did find each other. Even though it didn't work out, it was an amazing periord in my life.
Summation: Enjoy the people in your life. They might not be the one, but they have something to offer and you do, too.
