Not Gonna Settle

I believe that the right person is out there for me, just as I am the right person for someone out there... I HAVE to believe that because the alternative is just too awful to com template; but that being said I am happy being single, I have good friends, on-line and in RL, I have a good job, I am independent, intelligent, with a good heart, strong morals and a reasonable level of self-confidence.  I am happy with my life, sure it could be better, but I freely recognise that it could be a lot lot worse.... and so, as much as I want my fairytale ending, the happily ever after with my significant other, and believe you me, I really really want that, I am not going to settle.  Being with the wrong person just to be with someone is cruel and un-fulfilling for both of us, so I am happy to wait for my Prince Charming to come along, for us to recognise each other and have our own Happily Ever After, but until then I will continue to enjoy my life as I have always done, having fun along the way.

Firefly..you have a very healthy perspective.....something I'm am working towards....It is so important not to be bitter and be happy with what you have. I believe true love w will only fall at your feet when you are truly happy with yourself and your life alone. I plan to spend the next 18months dedicated to myself. True love will come when we stop thinking about it so much i think. :)

That exactly it my friend, you never know what is round corner but its good to give yourself time to be happy in yourself - i wish you every luck my friend

Thank you for this. It's just what I needed.

your very welcome I hope it helped you as much as it helped me to write it and honour it!!

You are absolutely right, good for you! I spent 25 years with the wrong person. She finally told me she wanted a divorce, that was the best thing she ever did for me. I will not rush into another relationship, I will hold out for something real. Good luck to you.

For me its about realising that I'm not going to be someones second best, and neither should I settle for that myself; am sure, at the beginning it felt right, I'm just sorry it didn't work out for you; whilst I can stand by what I hve written and hope that it is true, we can never truly know.... thats where faith in yourself and the other person comes into play, or at least for me. I'm sorry things didn't work out for you, but please do not give up hope, don't rush but don't hold back either, love is to precious a gift to either squander or hide away from. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my post, it is very much appreciated and I wish you well friend

I agree with you about not wanting to be with the wrong person. it just ruins both lives<br />
and i hope that you can someday find your prince and live happily ever after

So do I Anona, so do I ;-)
