Any One Thing...

“Always bear in mind that your resolution to succeed is more important than any one thing.” Abraham Lincoln

I was having my afternoon tea and the tea bag label had this quote on it. This quote is extremely profound and can be applied to many areas of life. I thought about it in the dating context. I have heard countless times from young, beautiful, successful women about how many horrible dates they have been on or how many guys they are interested in that end up rejecting them. The ultimate complaint is “I am just tired of dating. When will it happen for me?”

There are different types of dating situations. There is dating someone for fun, as a rebound, looking for marriage, a long-term commitment and more. If you take this quote and apply it to dating, you will find that you will need to define what you believe is success in a relationship. Are you looking for fun, a rebound, to get married or to have a long-term commitment? I think by figuring out your end-goal, you’ll find that the dates or things in between won’t really matter that much.

For example, if you are looking for a long-term commitment or to ultimately get married, you will want to find a man that you can do that with, which is clearly NOT the guy who isn’t paying attention to you. Or, if you are looking to have some fun and there is a guy pursuing you non-stop and actually falling in love with you, he is definitely not the guy you want to have fun with.

So take this quote and relate it to your dating life as it is NOW. Where do you stand? What do you want? If you are in a relationship, you may have to evaluate your feelings towards the person you are dating. If you are looking for a relationship, you should try to approach the in between world of dating (the "one things") a lot differently to truly
find the love you want in your life.

What do you think? How do you feel? Let me know!

With Love,
