I’ve been going on a bunch of dates lately and doing the opposite of what I always thought. That instead of chasing and trying to find love, it would come find me again. Unfortunately I’ve come to the realization that I can meet some great people on dating sites, and although trying to find someone is fun….and a waste of time other nights, You can’t find love. You have to wait for it to come to you. With that said, at the same time, that doesn’t mean you should sit around and hope that it comes soon. You can do other things to help it find you.
You can go to parties and events, as well as have drinks with friends for a happy hour. You never know when you’re going to meet someone. The only way to meet a person is by being out there. You don’t have to force love to come to you, but you do have to at least make a move. That’s why I love the showtune I Know It’s Today from Shrek the Musical.
The song sort of reminds me of Happily Ever After from Once Upon a Mattress because it is about being bitter and goes through everyone else’s love and all of the other princesses finding their princess or having their princess rescue them. When Fiona sings I Know It’s Today from Shrek the Musical, she is singing to her stuffed animals about Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel and everyone else who she eventually meets in person and becomes friends with. The only problem is she is getting lonely as she grows older and is somewhat questioning if her prince will come for her.
It’s sort of like when you go on a few bad dates and it just seems pointless because everyone out there is getting worse and worse and you just keep getting older and older. The truth is that you just need to not give up if you really want to find love, because eventually it will find you. Some people don’t find it until they are in their 50’s and some find it when they are teenagers. You just have to be patient and you cannot focus on everyone else’s story. What you need to do is think of your own and wait for your true love to come find you, after you let him or her know how. Love is sort of like fate.
If you are meant to find love, you will find it. At the same time, even if you don’t find true love and the person you will be married to for the rest of your life, you can still have other times of love where you are with someone you honestly love, even if it doesn’t work out. It hurts when you break up, but the hurt feelings do go away and you’ll be able to fall in love again. I love the song I Know It’s Today from Shrek the Musical because it reminds me of going on dating sites and realizing that they just aren’t working. I know eventually I’ll meet the right person but until then, I’m going to continue to have fun and hopefully meet a great guy before then.
