Do you believe in it?
I used to be a romantic at heart. I think I read too much. Honestly.I used to think we all had one soul mate in the world and we would be destined to meet, etc, etc.
Now I tend towards believing there are many possible soulmates for us out there. After all, it’s the only realistic possibility. We can’t all have just the one – we’d never meet “the one for us”. The world’s just too enormous. I guess I could go one step further and say soulmates don’t exist, just “the right people at the right time in your life”…but I’m not quite ready to be that cynical.
I bring this up because one of my friends is considering getting married. She went overseas to work for a few months and fell for a guy. He’s seven years older, doesn’t speak all that much English….but they connected.
I don’t know. I haven’t met him, though if he comes over at Christmas like she wants, I guess I will. She says she wants us to all tell her what we honestly think of him – but I doubt she’ll listen. I want to like him, but from what we all know, they just sound too different. All us girls are sceptical, and we don’t trust the sounds of this. I don’t think her parents are too thrilled either, but are starting to sound more resigned to the possibility.
She’s just a hopeless romantic. And I think that she is somewhat afraid to let go, because she wants to settle down young and have a family, and thinks she might not find another person? But then again, she says she’s also holding back a little because she isn’t sure what the future holds – what if she finds her real soulmate in a few years?
