Waiting For ‘The One’


Love is a beautiful thing, isn’t it? Whether it be for a person, a pet or your local cafe’s creamy caramel latte. I love love, but finding it can be a tearful, tiring and stressful journey. We’re all guilty of sharing our awkward couple selfies and ‘breakfast in bed with bae’ tweets (even though I’ve never had that), and if you’re not in a relationship then it kinda makes you wanna vomit and cry into a ball of loneliness. But one thing we never seem to remember is everyone was single once.

I’m in a happy relationship. In fact *in comes cringe content* it’s literally perfect. I couldn’t cope in life without him and I wouldn’t be where I am now without his support and love. I’m not used to saying gooey things like this but you get the idea. So anyway, I do tend the share the odd lame couple photo and whatnot, but before Jimmy came along I had a completely different love history.

As a lot of us do, I went through tears, cheating, manipulation, heartbreak, and basically all of that shit we have to deal with at some point. I felt like I’d never be happy with anyone and every time I saw other couples I would just mope around like WHEN WILL SOMEONE LOVE MEEEEE. I tried everything – dating apps, meeting people in bars and clubs, but nothing was working out. In all honesty I was a complete mess for a good few years and it all changed when I met Jimbo. Believe it or not, we actually met on Tinder in the end (#successstory!).

So, what’s the point I’m trying to make? Everyone has to wait for ‘the one’, and even those happy people you see probably had horrid experiences with love in the past. It’s so easy to get caught up in the whole ‘I’m the only one who’s alone’, but most people went through years of pain and mental torture to end up finally meeting the right person. And you will too.

After having such horrid experiences with men in the past I feel like I’m some sort of genius when it comes to dating tips, but the one bit of advice I could give anyone would be not to wait for love, and let it come to you. It’s such a punch in the stomach when you’ve broken up with someone, or if you’ve been single for years on end, but if you just take one day as it comes, it’ll come along when you least expect it. As much as all of that will be stuff you’ve heard a million times, it’s really true, and those who are happy now were once a spiralling pit of tears on their mums bed at 10pm asking why they weren’t good enough.

And then someone will make you realise why you are.

So guys and gals, if you haven’t found ‘the one’, they’ll come. Remember we were all single once.

    A big yesssss to this post! Totally agree with everything you’ve said. I used to get so annoyed when people would say love will find you when you’re least expecting it and when you’re happy but they were right! x

      It’s so true isn’t it! So many people fob it off and don’t listen (me included back in the day) but I wish someone drilled it into me more!
