As I’m still single, this is just the conclusion that I have come to through living vicariously through my not-so-single friends.
I used to think that love was complicated, but it’s really not. It’s getting past that first step that’s just so damn frustrating, putting yourself out there romantically and initiating that contact with a potential suitor, without seeming desperate. And even when it is initiated, the whole process is a bit awkward, trying to figure out how to be yourself without scaring the other person off. It’s frustrating and making yourself vulnerable is never fun.
But the fact is that when two people who are mutually attracted to each other cross paths, sparks fly naturally. It becomes easier. Hesitation fades and all that is left is two people who want to be together.
Now staying together… that’s a whole ‘nother post.
