Noone ever NEEDS anyone. Human love is the most beautiful thing on this Earth, but not necessarily ROMANTIC love. I happen to emphasize the importance of the individual and his or her independency... the 'need' for someone makes a person weak, the fact that you have to rely on someone to 'complete' you is misleading; all you need is your own inner fortitude, nothing else.

Here's an interesting quote:

A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who we're pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we're safe in our own paradise. Our soulmate is someone who shares our deepest longings, our sense of direction. When we're two balloons, and together our direction is up, chances are we've found the right person. Our soulmate is the one who makes life come to life.
-Richard Bach, The Bridge Across Forever

For me, that is exactly why I want to find a soulmate. But so far the people who seem to have all the keys to my locks don't have the right set of locks for my keys...

I know that I want someone for the wrong reasons as well right now.

I miss the closeness, and the friendship that comes with it all.

But, working on myself right now is more the priority.

At least I have that much figured out!

Hi Trash!

Thanks for being so nice! I know that day will come when all the right things collide, and I hope that day comes for you soon as well.

I guess we "still haven't found" what we're looking for!

Take care, Trash!

Hmmm... I HAVE already "found what I am looking for"!
And because I have found it, I am now working on myself, and then perhaps I will choose to find someone.



Peace.

Awesome. I'm 23 and still searching, but then again I'm the type to still be searching at 43! So, who knows? But I'm glad you've found it, Trash.

Just so there is no confusion. What I have "found" is Jesus Christ.
As to where I used to know about Jesus, I now KNOW Jesus. A "personal relationship".
Thats really what matters most. All else can come after this fact. All else I will "leave behind".


Peace

Cuz you're human...DUH!

It can be a bit frustrating when all you see and hear everyday is LOVE songs on the radio and Romances on t.v. (it always turns out that there's a "love" interest between the female and male leads).

Also, when you go to public places and see gals with their boobs bursting out or guys with no shirts or a happy family... anyway you get my drift...
I get to questioning myself too: "Why am I not hitched at 25?"

Anyway, it all stems from our innate desires for the opposite sex. And Satan plays on that and tries to distract us from what's really important.

There are many different types of love. The bible says that in the last days there will be a loss of "natural affection". Thus, a lot of people confuse lust with love.

But I totally agree with some of the statements made in reference to Paul in the Bible and the fact that you need to grow up some before you can make the kind of sacrifices needed for a happy married life.
(I've met so many guys who want to marry so the gal will "take care" of them)

I thank God that I wasn't raised in a family or society that forces arranged marriages and that I have the freedom to choose who I want to be with.

Thanks for sharing
