At the risk of ticking off the bitter single people... good lord am I a happy girl right now.
Finally met a guy who treats me better than I've ever been treated and who I absolutely love being with.
Cloud 9? Try cloud 90.
Sorry for that.
While it's important to know that you can find happiness on your own, I think stories like this are great to share because they reaffirm that not all stories are horror stories. There's someone out there. It can just take awhile for two great people to cross paths at the right time. I think many of us know this already, but sometimes it's easy to think it can't happen to you. I never thought it was out there for me, either.
I slogged through a decade of heartbreak, abandonment issues, sadness, and regret before I finally met my beloved sweetheart. Fifteen years together, and not a day passes when he doesn't show me in some way that I'm his beloved.
You guys know we've got the hockey thing between us
; I'll remind you that some of the best things are found in the most unlikely places--and variety is the spice of life.
So, yes, it's out there. Believe it.
