Since my first/last/only boyfriend I have ever had, which ended up being over a two year relationship, I made a promise to myself not to bother with anyone else until I found the one.
The one being the guy I fall head over heels in love with, the guy I marry, the guy I have children with, the guy I travel the world with. This guy would be worth waiting for, worth not wasting my time talking to so many people trying to fill the whole. He will be worth the lonely nights alone, the pain in seeing so many of my friends happy in relationships or getting married.
I made a decision not to waste precious time on life by trying to find ‘the one’ or settling for someone who isn’t worth it. My previous relationship taught me a lot and I’m grateful for it. It wasn’t that my boyfriend treated me wrong it was that it made me wiser to what I want in a life-long partner and the type of person I want to help me grow as a person.
I want to find the type of love that every girl dreams of, the one in the movies that is now so unrealistic in life that girls just settle for what they can get, instead of searching for the man that is out there but they are to impatient or lonely to wait. After now being single for over two years, I have grown a lot in who I am and the sort of person I want to be in the coming years. I don’t go searching, flirting or sleeping around to try and fill the emptiness that potentially may never be filled because I have learnt I can do anything I set my mind to and I don’t need a guy to tell me that.
