The question isn't "Is there someone out there that's right for me?"
It should be (and usually is) "Is there someone out there who I am right for?"
Someone else also said this earlier in the thread, and I agree with both of you. I'm insecure in a lot of ways but when it comes to relationships, I know what I can bring to one and what my strengths (and weaknesses) are. Everything's a bit too raw for me right now but I'm hoping that with some time, I can look back and see what I brought to my marriage and what I can do to improve so that I'm a better partner whenever that happens the next time around.
Gonna lay down some wisdom for you all:
Bitching about everyone else being coupled off or how "Valentine's SUCKS!" is infinitely more irritating, self-absorbed, and short-sighted than *ANY* couple boasting of their coupledom will ever be.
I get being single and lonely is tough on a day like this, but its only as tough as you let it be.
To be fair, people haven't been bitching too much around here. Which I think is pretty awesome. Maybe it's because I'm enjoying being freshly single, but I don't think it's that tough to be single on a day like today. Maybe if I was in high school that kind of thing would suck more, but otherwise, it's just a day that you can choose to participate in or not.
I totally high-fived with my bank teller today over being single. We were both in great moods. Sometimes things are only as bad as you make them.
