Wait for Love, Damn It!
If there is one thing I try not to do on this blog, it’s get all preachy and relationship expert-like. But for this, I’m going to put my arms akimbo and become your Sassy Gay Friend for a moment. WAIT FOR LOVE, DAMN IT!
Spring has sprung in DC and while some of you are walking around holding hands under the cherry blossoms, some of you are also walking around wondering where your plus one is and why he hasn’t shown up yet.
You’re ready for him, I know. There have been times in my life too when I felt really ready to give and receive love, and wondered why I wasn’t finding someone to share it with. WAIT FOR LOVE, DAMN IT!
As my grandma would say, “it may not come when you want it to but it’ll come right on time.” It’s hard to fall asleep at night holding on to a belief, but isn’t that what we do every day? Yes, it may take a moment for the right person to come along but that person will come; and being frustrated about it may close you off to recognizing a good thing when it finally comes along.
Oh, and just because you have someone to walk under the cherry blossoms with doesn’t always mean they’re the right person for you. WAIT FOR LOVE, DAMN IT!
I was talking with my Mom once about dating and she told me that I should slow down. At the time, I didn’t quite understand what she meant, which was that I was moving from relationship to relationship and not leaving enough time in between for myself.
It’s difficult to find love in a relationship with someone when you’re still dealing with the fallout from a previous relationship; regardless of whether it ended on a good or bad note. Wait a while and be still. If there’s a man standing around waiting for you, then he won’t mind waiting if he’s worth his salt.
That’s it for me being your Sassy Gay Friend. Enjoy the Spring weather in DC. More from An Episode in Dating tomorrow.
