I was thinking today as I began my day's routine how much we live for what will happen later. I decided that I want to live each day as though it is all I have. (Planning for the future of course as it is smart). I want to really stop looking for the "one" (man). I want to just forget it and live for me. I have no kids so I can really live that way. If something comes along that works great; but I am so done with the "search" or settling for some looser. Share your stories men and women on life and all that it mmeans to you.

Unfortunately life is full of dissapointmets but as the saying goes when one door closes a window is opened. i was with a guy for 8 years and we had a child together who is now 4. SOmetimes I wonder what I woudl have done with my life had aI not been settled down from the age of 16 but now at 25 and having been single for 2 years I try to embrace everything that went wrong in my life and see it as something that I never want to return to but also see it as experience in the hope that when I do find something that works for me I don't take it for granted, I think when you have gone through the bad things you appreciate the good things more than those who have had everything fall on their laps. It took me a while to realise that real life is not like a tv programme or film and that I don't NEED someone to be happy. i am now happy with who I am and anyone who I choose to start a relationship with I want it to compliment my happiness and not complicate it. i know if I stop looking and remain confident with who I am that eventually I will find someone who does not want to change me adn who will love me for who I am, I also know that one day you will find the same. x

After my last relationship, I'd given up on finding someone who really loved me for who I am. I didn't want to get into another relationship, because I didn't want to be hurt again. That's when I met the love of my life. We've been together for about 6 months now, and I still believe in my heart that he's the one for me. Good luck to you, and God bless you. =)
