Ever since I moved to the city my friends here have been trying to extol the virtues of Match.com in an effort to get me to join.
I admit it's tempting. I want to meet more people in the city and my friends who have done it are perfectly normal people who have met other perfectly normal people. I would love to have someone to share my days and adventures with and want to have someone who shares my interests to go out and experience the city with.
But I hesitate...and not because I think it's weird to meet someone online.
I don't know if I really believe that I will meet someone perfect for me in doing it and I also don't know if I even believe in love anymore.
Not that I don't believe in the existence of love. I have friends and family that I love dearly and would do absolutely anything for.
I have friends who are in relationships where they are clearly and truly in love with one another. I see them and I think they are perfect examples of what love is meant to be.
It's maybe more that I wonder if everyone is destined to find that sort of love in their lifetime.
Moving around so much has definitely made the whole idea seem even further off for me. I am starting to think that maybe it's just not in my future..and you know what, I think I am also starting to be ok with that.
