It just seems to be the same ole song. You meet this nice person, you seem to have so mch in common, and you fall in love. Next thing you know you find out this person isn't at all what you thought they were, and before you know it your back out looking again. Why does it have to be this hard?

I agree though, it does get old sometimes.

Falling in love and infatuation are not the same thing. One must be careful not to fall in love with the idea of love rather than the person - nor to project qualities onto a potential mate without giving things time.

Falling too quickly too often is a symptom of seeing only what one wants to see rather than reality. The tiring part is not finding someone that one feels is compatible.

OMG, I've been asking myself the same question for 39years and I still don't have an answer... Let me know if someone lets you in on the "secret to love", will you?

Since I've been blessed enough to find it, not any more...now I just get tired of waiting for the next time I can be with that special someone I'm no longer just looking for...

Thanks, Red! Eastham emailed me today; one of the things she said was that she misses me "something awful; but it's a good kind of awful." As strange and sadomasochistic as that sounds, I agree with her 100%!
When one of us finally does get to travel, it's gonna be SOME reunion!

Oh probably but then one realizes that the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat is simply part of life. As long as one positions themselves to possess more victories then defeats it's all right.

Looking for fun, adventure and enjoyment may just be the ticket to locating true love. One may not find only one to be "in love" with but may discover they may love many in special as well as in different ways.

I think this poem by Walt Whitman is beautiful......It's called "Among the Multitude"

~ So, look for love no longer; perhaps it shall find you? ~




"Among the men and women the multitude
I perceive one picking me out by secret and divine signs,
Acknowledging none else, not parent, wife,
husband, brother, child, any nearer than I am;
Some are baffled, but that one is not -
that one knows me.

Ah, lover and perfect equal!
I meant that you should discover me so, by my faint indirections;
And I, when I meet you, mean to discover you by the like in you."
- Walt Whitman

The things I've learned when trying to find that one "true love":
1) set some parameters on what inner qualities you seek in a mate, but don't narrow the field down by looking for specific physical features.
2) be patient, consider the "search" to be a road trip, make friends along the way because anyone of them could be a potential "true love".
3) never say never . . . to anything. The person you think you'd never want to settle down with COULD be the one.
4) take risks . . . you'll never know unless you're willing to stumble occasionally.
5) enjoy each new experience because it is bringing you one step closer to what you seek.

Perhaps, Makya, you may find dating easier after you've completed your divorce and have healed from the experience. No matter the details of your situation, you need to find your happiness in being single first.

Redtigr makes an excellent point as well:

Falling in love and infatuation are not the same thing. One must be careful not to fall in love with the idea of love rather than the person - nor to project qualities onto a potential mate without giving things time.

Falling too quickly too often is a symptom of seeing only what one wants to see rather than reality. The tiring part is not finding someone that one feels is compatible.

I have confused love and infatuation more than once!


Oct_Cat also makes some good points:

enjoy each new experience because it is bringing you one step closer to what you seek

Try removing expectation from dating and just enjoy it for what it is! All of those dates makes you more ready to receive the "one!"


Good luck!
