LOL not very diplomatically put but propably the best advice. If you don't search, you can't find (or be found).
Sometimes, when you find someone, even though he/she is perfect it still might not work because of circumstances you can not influence (happened to me. Twice). Still, the important thing is to not give up but simply try again.
And again. And again...
And even if you're so lucky to form a relationship, never make the mistake to take it for granted. People nowadays give up at the slightest difficulty and get divorced rather than trying to really work on a relationship and find a way *together*.
Admittedly, it's easy to fall in love and quite another thing to stay immersed. But here, too, not giving up pays. After a while there won't be the initial fire anymore, but if you have the patience, devotion and courage to go on instead of walking away, gradually something calm and deep will develop that you couldn't have imagined in your wildest dreams.
