Hopeless Romantic

People always ask me why am I single, don’t I get lonely and why don’t I find someone. Your pretty, smart and you have life together why don’t you date someone.

I never know how to answer this question but today I am going to give y’all an entire post as to why.

The answer is … I am a hopeless romantic. This means that people like me live life with the following equation Life = Love (Life equals to Love). Now your probably wondering that since I am a hopeless romantic I should be in a relationship or should have a list long of past relationships but I don’t, because of this I choose to be single.

People assume that what I want is unrealistic and doesn’t exist. I choose to disagree. What happened to dating? What happened to courting someone? What happened to romantic gestures? Today receiving flowers means your some sort of golddigger. People have become so lazy to do things the right way that they skip all these steps and go straight to the sheets. No romance, no nothing.

Via text you get asked to be someone’s gf/bf.

I want a romcom. A series of unimaginable events leading to the day me and my other meet. I want a WOW moment where it feels like the heavens are rejoicing in us finally meeting.

Now you all might think I watch a lot of movies blah blah blah but I have seen these beautiful things happen in the lives of people around me and all they did was wait. One waited 6 years, other 2 months. I don’t care how long but I will wait. I am not looking for a short term solution to my problem, it needs to be long term. Like my pastor says “you date to get married, don’t date if your goal is not to marry them”.

I always like to say don’t lower your standards cause people don’t see the bigger picture or see what you see. Stand firm in your beliefs. Stop seeking fast and quick solutions to problems and wait. Fate always reveals itself just gotta wait for that timing.

    Read this and thought “you took the words right out of my mouth”! Very true. Seems we are hopeless romantics living in an era of hookups.

    You took the words right out of my mouth. I have been single for 3 years now and it is absolutely fine because I know the wait will be worth it 🙂 I’m actually excited. I really do believe in God’s perfect will for my life and He also said I should delight in Him and He will give me my hearts desires 🙂

    It’s worth the wait, there are plenty of romantic human beings out there. And when you’re not looking that’s when they find you.
