A special note to those who are single...

I have been thinking...I should really get one of those small tape recorders so when I am in the car I will always remember what I am thinking about. I have begun to realize that most of my journal thoughts come to me while I am driving.

I heard this song today and it went something like this...

My married friends keep asking me
When I'll settle down
They tell me time is passing
And there's not too many good ones still around
I tell them I am not afraid to be alone
And there's no need to rush into something wrong

So I'm not gonna worry
No I'm in no hurry
It's in the hands of fate
There's nothing I can do
And it might be tomorrow
Or the one that follows
Got the rest of my life to look forward to
Cause everyday is one day closer to you


You might be in Montana
Living in the hills
Or you might be in Virginia
Workin' in a mill
All I know is that I haven't found you yet
But who knows maybe we've already met

So I'm not gonna worry
No I'm in no hurry
It's in the hands of fate
There's nothing I can do
And it might be tomorrow
Or the one that follows
Got the rest of my life to look forward to
Cause everyday is one day closer to you

So I'm not gonna worry
No I'm in no hurry
It's in the hands of fate
There's nothing I can do
And it might be tomorrow
Or the one that follows
Got the rest of my life to look forward to
Cause everyday is one day closer
Yeah everyday is one day closer
Everyday is one day closer to you

(Carolyn Dawn Johnson/Mary Danna)


Perhaps I am just a hopeless romanctic...but I honestly do believe that if one is patient someone will come. One thing I have learned that I think I will value above all from dating Kalen is patience. I think about how I used to worry whether or not I was going to find the "right man", because just like everyone else, I do not want to make any mistakes, nor have my heart broken...or marry the wrong person and find myself in divorce court five years later.

My biggest fear was, and still is whether there is a man out there who can even handle me? I do know one thing, I have to have someone who is incredibly patient, because sometimes I can be overly emotional. Not on the point of hysteria...just very sensitive at times. I am occasionally temperamental...I know there are times when I am really not the easiest person to get along with, but something that people always seem to miss in me is that I am never intentionally trying to be difficult and that I will always be trying.

Whether others feel the same, I am not sure. I do know however, that many people sometimes feel rather...hopeless. As they fear they will never find the "right man" or the "right woman". And this is for you men and woman...be patient. That statement alone probably sounds ludicrous coming from me. For those who know me best, know that my patience tolerance is VERY low. I know that telling someone to be patient is easier said than done, but you really don't want to be so desperately searching for the "right one" that you end up with the wrong one, which may mean missing the opportunity to find the right one. Think of it this way...everyday you are single and are able to learn more about yourself, learn more about what you truly want and more about how to treat a person right is another day closer to the "right one".

Ok first off all those things you said about yourself kind of go hand in hand with being a woman. If you weren’t unpredictable in your womanly ways allot of us guys might not notice you.
Second and I believe I’ve said this myself more then once somewhere or another the right person man or woman will always be there for you because love is unconditional. So once you or anyone else has found the real thing worrying about things like that will be a thing of the past.
Secondly . . . or thirdly for those paying attention you make some pretty good points about having to be patient. That’s pretty much the key. You can look for Love if you want but eventually it finds you.

:P*

I guess this means I agree with you, but am almost completely on the other side of the fence as far as personal experience goes.
