SINGLENESS IN LATE 20s. Some people rush, others believe in the virtue of patience. Honestly, being single during your late 20s freaks me out especially when people around me pressure me to mingle and to socialize with guys. I see nothing wrong with it, I mean not all love stories have a pattern to follow, it is not a one size fits all kind of thing. Once the right person is about to come into your life, ready or not, he surely will. Before I have decided to socialize, I made sure that I'm ready. Preparing yourself into the next step in life doesn't mean doing it by force, or by deadline. It takes time and it takes a lot of compromise. You prepare yourself in becoming better, in putting your self back together and being whole, better person again.It's like updating your self into 2.0 from 1.0. I do not believe in falling in love when you are mad for revenge, when you are bitter just to look contented, when you are sad just to feel happy or when you feel like you are left out just to be in. That way your know, confidently, that your can present yourself to your right One, an updated version of you. I'm not a relationship guru ala Jo the Mango writing this. I made a lot of mistakes in life before, a lot of them are irreversibile & some are not pleasant to share but these teaches me/us how to take life in a better, wider and matured perspective. It has helped me a lot in enjoying the man I'm with now. It's when you feel happy, truly happy everyday. And that I am thankful for those happy days. Indeed God is love, and I'm grateful because if you have true love, you know, you have God.
You know when it is the right love when you see the future clear in his eyes and when you feel the security of having someone (should I say, extraordinary someone), who is willing to do anything just to be in your life, by all means, against all odds.
