I haven’t been dating just for kicks and giggles. The good and bad (and traumatizing) experiences are all a part of meeting the one person that is truly right for me. When Mr. Right For Me shows up, I pretty much just have one main goal: don’t screw it up. Of course, it’s way more complicated than that. There will be compromise and loads of patience (patience mostly on his part) and actual work that would be involved.
A lot of us aren’t ready for love, even though we think we are. How do you know for sure that you are? If you met the person you think is meant for you, are you prepared to do the work? It won’t always be sunshine and rainbows, so as New Edition used to sing, Can You Stand the Rain? Sounds cheesy, but it’s the truth. We are so used to bailing out when things don’t work for us, how are we working now to make sure we can make a relationship last?
Do you think there are things we can do while we are single to prepare us for a relationship? What about marriage?
When you meet someone who you feel that you could have a future with, what should you do to let them know?
