The Right Person
Continuing along the lines of meeting someone, how do we know we met Mr. or Ms. Right?
Granted, what makes two people fall in love is beyond reason sometimes. I always say, “For every crooked pot, there is a crooked lid.”
Is the difficulty of meeting Mr. or Ms. Right a symptom of something bigger? Is it people are so cautious because of the high rate of divorce in this country? Have our expectations of what makes a good mate become unattainable that before we know it, there is no one left? But then, aren’t we told we should never settle?
Has Hollywood or the media distorted our image of Mr. or Ms. Right so much that unless you look like you work out 10 hours a day, went to the Right colorist, drove the Right car or carried the Right purse, you don’t qualify? Are we looking for our parents in our search for our mate — which may or may not be a good thing, depending? Have our checklists gotten so long, that Jesus wouldn’t have qualified?
Interestingly, eHarmony only allows you 10 each of "must haves" and "can’t stands" so you really have to think of what is truly important to you.
I certainly don’t have the answer. But if the divorce rate is at 50 percent in this country, then we are doing something that’s not Right.
