I am 47, never married, and believe there still may be someone out there for me, we just haven't connected yet. There are what I consider to be
"kindred spirits", be they male or female, and it is a rare and beautiful thing to encounter someone like this who greatly enhances the experience
Some of us may be meant to pass through life, touch many other lives, but never formally "connect" with another.
The more visible and interactive you are with others, the more likely you'll meet someone. The more limitations and pre-conceived idealistic traits
you seek in another, the fewer will meet your expectations.
One must move beyond shallowness i.e. appearances, physical beauty, and seek the traits which are truly valuable, i.e. integrity, beauty of spirit,
The older I get, the more I realize how much I have in common with others. I used to think I was so unique, but in reality, there are many people who
share your interests and dreams. Being open and receptive and having courage to initiate contacts is the key. When we become bitter and close down
ourselves to loving, we write off possibilities for finding that special someone.
