life in all its glory

when “they” are right…

on May 3, 2013

So I know we’ve all heard those sayings about what “they” think. 

  • “they” say time heals all
  • “they” say once you stop ‘looking’ he/she will coe around
  • “they” say blah blah blah 

You get the point. 

I always hated when people told me that when I stop looking, “he” would come around. I think I may have even written about it before. What does that even mean? It’s not like I was standing on a street corner with a sign over my head that read “looking for Mr. Right!! MARRY ME!” 

I’ve also always hated being single which is quite unfortunate because I’ve always been single! ha. I’ve never really been in a serious relationship. Just dated around.

Most of you have been a part of my journey where I basically came to accept being single. I actually started to enjoy it. I liked being single for once. 

And…boom. Mr. Incredible came around. 

“They” where right. Those bastards. Whoever they are. 

Sometimes I’m not sure if I should flip them off or thank them. 

What are some moments where “they” have been right for you? I’m curious to hear other people’s stories.

    Yes, “they’ve been right a few times for me. I stopped looking six years ago and found my now-ex – we were together for 4+ years. And now that I decided I wanted a break from dating – I think I may have found “someone” special. Annoying people always right!!

  2. Chin Up, Chest High! says:

    I’ve had self-esteem problems most of my life, especially when it comes to dating. When my marriage broke down two years ago (the only relationship I’ve ever known with my ex wife citing having never been in love with me) I was convinced that nobody would ever want to date me because nobody ever had – I was simply undateable. “They” said I would have no problem meeting women for dates. “They” also said that I would get attention from the sort of women I would find attractive – that the sort of intelligent, driven, amazing women I loved spending time with do not always just want to be friends.

    And they were right – the bastards 🙂

    So far I’ve gotten all of the same cliches you’ve gotten. But “they” haven’t been correct.

    Yet. I hope.

  4. I remember being told time flies when I was very young. It never made sense until I got a little older. They were right. Time flies!
