You have cast your net into the sea of relationships and managed to pull a few worthy matches from the abyss. The problem is that they lack the special spark, that deep, heart-expanding romantic WOW that was the reason that you put your net in there in the first place. They seem to possess all of the qualities that you are looking for, and by all accounts, you should be attracted to them, but you are not. You start to reminisce on past relationships that may have been less healthy, but made you feel alive. You start to question if you should have standards to begin with. Fear not, this is normal! Keep your standards, but also keep that feeling of freedom that you had with an old romance. The right romance will combine the two, but it takes some time. Would pearls be valuable if they were easy to find? Part of the reason for their worth is a result of their rarity.
This is a beautiful time. Time to cultivate the person you want to be and explore the inner you before sharing it with the one whom you want to spend the rest of your life with. Comparatively, this is a short time, so make the most of it! Whatever you do, please refuse to compromise for someone who’s compromising for you just because you seem to be compatible on paper. This is someone who dislikes the major parts of you, like your morals. Both partners will be unhappy. There are people who will treasure this about you. The secret is patience. Even for the waiting you have done thus far, you have been rewarded: an electric connection here and there that refuses to let you compromise for anything less fabulous.
Let us help you cast your net into plentiful waters.
