Patience dating men
Noticing our infrequent communication, I tried to continue this conversation by asking tons of predictable questions. The keyword being easy.However, on the rare occasion that we did communicate, I could feel myself growing with intellect and humor, leading me to crave more time with him.In a world where retailers offer same-day delivery options and smartphone applications remove the wait for a cab, I had to remind myself that a healthy, working relationship requires endless patience and consistent work. Unable to communicate with him on a regular basis drove me crazy.To cope with all the hopelessness, bitterness, loneliness, panic, frustration and feelings of failure I was experiencing, I wrote an open letter to my single self.Although I didn’t believe it at the time, I gave myself the most awesome advice. Love is a mystery that you can’t harness or control or elicit or will.I remain strongly connected to the part of me that wrote this letter.

If I were to be single again, I would be a lot more laid back and compassionate about the whole thing. People love to ask you why you aren’t dating or when you plan to or force advice or single guys upon you when you didn’t ask. There are some things that are in your control — like choosing not to listen to people who make annoying single comments to you — but there are other things that are not. You’ll be on OKCupid scrolling though suitors like a mofo, you’ll be accepting potential setups, guys will be popping out of manholes on the street to date you. Understanding that people are strange, unique creatures not to be understood (yourself included sometimes) — especially when it comes to love and intimacy — is the most invaluable realization a single person can have. And this would give me carte blanche to feel sorry for myself. I thought I had taken all I could back then, but I still had another 2 years and 3 months of bad dates, breakups and romantic disappoints before anything lasting.Funny that I can’t even remember why it was a low point.Probably because I had created some kind of timeline where I imagined that I should have been in a relationship by that point.
