All The Good Ones Are Taken

Does it seem in your search for for someone to share this journey in life, that all the good ones are taken? Think again. We meet a lot of people day to day in our lives, buy rarely it seems that we ever give them a chance.

Let's face it, if you have ever read an online add, or a personals page in the newspaper, the ad reads like a grocery list. Are you one of those who write ads like this?

If you were reading your own ad for, could you qualify? I don't thinks so! C'mon, there are laughable. Let's see, everyone wants someone successful, financially stable, confident, intelligent, at least 6'tall, (if you are man hunting) kind, someone that makes you laugh, someone that works out and in good physical condition, enjoys walks on the beach, cozy times by the fireplace, and loves wine. You're kidding right? Are you all these things?

It's funny, that many men and women in conversations with friends, will always mention, that all the good ones are taken. Hardly! When you meet people every day you get to know your co-workers and their partners, business people, you friends or relatives new partners, friends of friends you met at a party, and so on, and you always say, "all the good ones are taken".

Actually, there are many very nice people out there, and some strange one too, don't get me wrong. But, do you ever put yourself out there and give anyone a chance? Oh I know, the grocery list! You are just so perfect. Right? And after all, you are just not going to settle for anything less! Right?

I think you will find that many people have some very nice attributes, if given a chance to show them. You meet people that you get to know, an then say, they are so nice, and where did that person find him/her?

The reason you are able to say that is because you have met them where you were able to get to know them. Once you got to know them, you were able to see some of the fine qualities they had. If you never give anyone a chance to shine, they will always be strangers, and not good enough.

So how do you like spending Saturday nights alone with your cat or dog? How about those exciting nights out on the town, where you really didn't talk with anyone, and came home alone?

All the good ones are taken? Not by a long shot! I thank God for the few nice attributes I have. After all, it could be worse. But one of my attributes is I am a very social person. Talking with people has always came very easy for me, no mater their sex, nationality, or station in life. When I was young, I thought everyone was this way. After all, what's the big deal?

But what I found was there are not many social people out there. It's very hard and awkward for many to be social. They get nervous, don't know what to say, and have a hard time adjusting themselves to a variety of personalities.

And if are one of those, it is going to be difficult for you to meet someone in a potentially romantic way. Sure, it is easy when there is nothing at stake and you meet people at work, of through friends like we spoke of earlier. But, when you are approached, or, you are afraid to approach someone, you get out of it what you put into it. Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

So, all the good ones are taken. No, I don't think so. But how about that grocery list you have. Are you that perfect? If so, you should thank your lucky stars. But for the majority of us, this is not the case. Give people you meet a chance, and find someone to share your journey through life.

What's the worse that can happen? Many people have a hard time at first getting to know someone. They don't know what to say, or how to start a conversation. But that doesn't mean that this person is not worth the time to get to know.

All the good ones are taken? Nope! Find Mr/Ms imperfect and love them with all your heart, as love remembers.
