I married very young (16) I am now 29 and separated with 4 beautiful kids. My happily ever after did not happen for me. Now it just seems that I totally missed my opportunity for true love. Maybe I will meet someone when I am an elderly woman. lol

i believed that true love exist... no matter how young and old we are... if it really meant for us it will find a way... sometimes we thought we lost the opportunity of finding the true love but we should wait... sister is separated with 3 kids but now she had found her true love... well she is quite old then but its not too late for u.. who knows u will meet him someday... :) just keep on believing.. if u havent found your true love yet well maybe your kids are your true love best! good day!

I love that my kids are my love. I mean I am in a stage where I don't want to be with anyone right now but I wonder if it is just meant for me to be alone always I am totally content with life though. Not looking for anything immediately just wondering about my future.

Before, I believed that true love exists because of the movies I am seeing. But now that I have experienced having a relationship, I don't think that it exist. Love is just sweet for the first time.. After some time, it will just fade. True love by a mother to her son/daughter, I think this is the only kind of true love that exists..

i had always been a skeptic and never truly believed in true love.Life's cruel,obviously and a wonderful thing such as true love could not fit in. but then somebody special came into my life-- He showed me that yeah, true love does exist.

Yes, there is a true love, and they really exist, and I strongly believe in it! Look at the people around you. The happiness and wholesomeness of your family, the sweet smile and embrace of your children, the loyalty and support you gain from friends, and the undying and unconditional love of your especial someone and partners! True love does not only covers a lovers relationship but they flow into different aspects! It is up to you will you can find and feel them. True love is magic but not happily ever after, it is a survival of a feelings wherein you need to sacrifice. True love is not optional...with no "ifs"....no "doubts"...and no limits! True love exist, but it was never been perfect!

Hi there ivonne2011!! Well to be honest I don't know if there really is a true love or such thing as that.But I think that even though I haven't experienced being in love yet, I can say that I have experienced true love in a different way like the love of my parents to me,my friends and my siblings.

Always pray to God that someday you'll find the man that will truly love you eternally.But if it will not come, it would mean that it's God's will because he doesn't want you to be frustrated again. But this time, you have to prioritize your kids. They need the most your unconditional love for them because you can never be happy if you missed quality time with your kids because you are longing for someone to love you. But anyway, you're still too young. Perhaps there is somebody who will stay with you and with your kids through thick and thin. There is a Psalm that says: "Delight always in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart." As what I have said, this time, the most pleasing to the Lord is to take care of your kids and yourself of course. Be patient and pray unceasingly so that you will be guided in making decisions in the future particularly in finding true love with someone.

Don't despair because you have all the chances of finding that one true love. You are still young at 29 an have lots to live for. If fate so decides to give you another love, then sooner or later you will find the right man. I also married when I was very young and like you it ended into a separation. I found someone I loved with all my heart but it seems history is repeating itself. I am starting to believe that there are no more fairy tales of living happily ever after. I am still thinking positive though but I hope it isn't too late for me. However, even the elderly can find love if it is their destiny.

I thought the same thing at 41 till I met the man of my dreams shortly after. I am now happy with my love life and would not change anything. I felt so bad fr so lng because I was married and never felt so much love in my marriage. I even have a child b the man and he was no where near the man I thought I deserved. I stopped looking for love and love found me.

I think it does but very rarely, I believe it has to be very strong to survive the temptations of the world and the fact we do keep on growing and can grow apart..

whether there is true love. to that love exists because it is love that is selfless love is that everyone wants. true love it when two people love them and nothing else they look in one direction, they become one. and when half of a whole then it will hurt a lot. hopefully find true love because she is very nice so you will feel very alive and full of energy and life. nice day!
