The truth is, most people you meet are totally wrong for you, whether you meet them online or at an after party for the Oscars. Which is why meeting truckloads of people is almost a requirement. It doesn’t matter how many “wrong” people you meet; what matters is doing everything possible to meet that one person. Don’t try a new venue—like online dating—thinking you’ll meet “better” people; try a new venue because you’ll meet more people…
Being single isn’t a real problem.
It becomes a real problem only when you believe the powers and forces of the universe have conspired against you.
When this happens you’ve begun supernatural thinking.
You need to scrape your face against reality. You need to realize that being single when you don’t want to be single anymore says nothing about your lovability, attractiveness, or quality as a person. It says volumes, though, about the limits you’ve established with respect to looking for and meeting new people.
If you’re single and you don’t want to be, meet more people. It is, in fact, that easy.
