Bumping into lovePosted: October 27, 2011
Ok, I watched it all.
Three quarters of the way through she told a story about being very successful at 36 but still single. She talked about coming to terms with all the good things in her life and accepting that she might not find a partner.
Then she goes on holiday to a rental house in Maine, gets asked out by the building contractor working on the house next door (after arguing with him) and they end up married.
HOW DOES THAT STUFF HAPPEN TO PEOPLE?
How do you just bump into THAT GUY and not even have to think about it?
Aaarrgggghhh it’s so frustrating.
Why some and not others?
About six or seven years ago when I was in that same age bracket as Kara, an aunt told me to go travelling to find love. Both her grand-daughters had met their husbands while travelling.
I’ve travelled all over Europe, America and to parts of Asia.
I must have met thousands of people since moving to the States.
Have looked for love.
Have waited for it to come to me while I worked on other things.
I’m running out of ideas.
It’s no good saying, I’m ok with the situation as it is because I’m not.
Yes, I can look after myself and am happy with my job. I write for a living, and lately new opportunities have been opening up to me. I’m very grateful. I love that I get to experience everything I have because of what I do. It’s exciting and I can do it well.
But I really want to meet someone, and I don’t think it’s going to happen in LA.
*books ticket to Maine*
I’m ready to bump.
