Is there really a Special One?

I believe there is a one true love the thing is you can't go out there looking for them you have to let them come to you. I met my special someone while shopping in the mall with a friend and we have been together every since. It's great I have had a couple of long term relationships but no guy has ever been in tune or on the same rhythm as me....It is great and I wish the same for every one....

I think one of the problems is that people often look for the "perfect" person, rather than the perfect person for them. Does that make sense? Like, people set the standard too high. "The person I'm destined to be with looks like the ideal person I envisioned when I was thirteen. He or she finds every single thing that I think is funny funny also," etc. The reality, though, is that the perfect person doesn't exist. The trick is to compromise. As unromantic as that sounds, it's the case. Sorry. That all was a little bit off topic. My thinking is that, no, there's not just one single true love out there for everyone, because true love exists in some version of that compromise area. Given that, there are many, but there certainly are some that are closer to that unattainable "perfection." I do agree, however, that you shouldn't go around *looking* for that person. When it's true love, when it's meant to be, the natural course of your life, and the natural course of their life will intersect, and both of you will recognize what's happening. That's how I met my wife. Neith of us was looking, but we definitely knew what we had found.

I believe over the world, there are a few special ones, many times, a lot of them are taken. You just need to keep an open mind in the beginning of the relationship, and be able to compromise for everything, as much as possible. The odds aren't so good if you aren't willing to search more and better while having patience. Don't be hasty with these things.
