So you are single and feeling sorry for yourself. You think you’re a catch, so why haven’t you found a partner to share your life with yet?
This simple statistic could be the reason:
1 in 3 marriages started online.
Yes! You read that correctly. 1 in 3!! One third of all marriages! Started online!
And I bet you thought online dating was for those who couldn’t get a date in real life. Joke’s on you, because technology has shifted the paradigm. Online is real life. With 96% of everyone under 30 being on at least 1 social media platform and the 55-65 age group being the fastest growing demographic on facebook …… where else can you have access to that many people?
And here I am shying away from online dating, still single. I guess it’s time we single gals get out there….take a cute picture, post on social media and rack up those likes.
If you never post pictures of yourself online you may be making it harder for you to find your future mate. And please make the pictures you post flattering photos. A photo that properly captures a bit of your essence. Are you sporty, like outdoors, an animal person? Let your online presence reflect that, you don’t have to post a new picture often but have a few flattering pictures of yourself doing something you enjoy.
Of course this advice is for if you wish to get married or at least get into a relationship. This is not the only way but with a statistic like 1 in 3 marriages starting online, if you want to get married and find yourself in a dating rut, it might not hurt to entertain a conversation or two online. Or you can slide the the DMs of that person you’ve been crushing on. Just remember to stay respectful and back off if they ask you.
If you’re looking for a relationship but haven’t been using social media and the internet, it’s time you get with the times!
You say you love my smile, are enraptured with it and you aren’t sure why. Well maybe you see or feel the loneliness it masks or feel the pull of the desire to be loved, held, taken care of. Maybe your soul recognises another soul in distress and wants to help, reach out, connect.
Maybe the karmic energies of the world are so greatly entwined that my grief attracts all grief, even that which was so small and well hidden in you.
You say that you’re interested in me but don’t know in what way, you just can’t help but look at me and want to be close. Maybe we’re designed so that hurt attracts hurt, loneliness attracts loneliness. Maybe you’re interested because of some ancient male genome, designed to protect, honed in on my concealed distress signal. Maybe you’re interested when I smile because you can feel that the light that is there, bright as it may be, is heavily shadowed by clouds of despair.
Or maybe my smile enraptured you because it’s the smile of somebody who knows love, has felt it, lost it but remembers it and is searching for it in everyone but knows she will never find it like she lost it but is dying inside to find it and live it again.
Maybe it’s the smile of someone dying to live again and begging every soul it meets to live with it, and maybe your soul wants to live like my soulful smile promises….with love and freedom.
