Au revoir, Saint Louis!
"Your joy is your sorrow unmasked. And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears." ~ Kahlil Gibran
I love the idea of finding that one perfect person just like in all the stories and movies and songs, but I'm certainly not the perfect, rich, handsome, mysterious, etc. hero in those stories. A perfect heroine, some pining princess would certainly not be impressed by the likes of me.... so maybe I won't hold my breath that my ideal match is waiting for me.
Maybe I'll just have to meet nice people here in the real world and treat them with honesty and respect and approach each relationship as if it has the potential to last forever... and then spend time grieving if/when it ends and try again?
If you have a better suggestion, I'm open.
