The other day, I was thinking about something. I feel that when you enter your twenties, a big aspect of your life is love and relationships. It feels as though everyone around you are in relationships, and if they are not in a relationship, they are thinking about them, meeting people, swiping on apps, going on dates, all in the pursuit to find the one person that completes them in a way.
Now, not saying I am different than everyone else, but just wanted to share something that I was thinking about. I am a big romantic who thinks that one day, I am going to meet someone at a coffee shop or a bar, and it turns into the first date, and then a relationship.
So, if this is truly how I am going to find someone, then that means a few things. Today, I am just chilling in my room in my student apartment working away and living my day to day life. I am applying for jobs, preparing my future, and everything that I am doing right now is to better my life in someway. So, I have no idea when I am going to meet “the one”, but what’s even more interesting is I don’t know where. And I don’t know where they are. It’s trippy to think about the fact that I have zero idea, zero clue about “the one” for me and its a bit daunting, but exciting I think. They could be 10 minutes from me, or a 10 hour flight away from me, but I am never going to know until the time comes. They could be someone who is currently in a relationship with another person, thinking that they are with the love of their life, or they could be someone who has never been in love before. They could be this person who I’ve built up in my head, or they could be completely opposite and not who at all who I thought I would be with.
Honestly, as someone who is a bit of a control freak, this thought scares me a bit, but at the same time, since I am more of a dreamer rather than a realist, I think that this is part of what makes life worth living. Something that is out of my control, but holds a major part of my future, defines certain aspects of it is just going to hit me someday and I have to adapt. The life plan changes, the future changes. And I could not be more excited for it (and slightly impatient if I am being honest). Just some day, I am going to meet someone and my life is going to change forever.
