Even if you hit it off with someone, it doesn’t mean that they are the right person. You may think the world of them and each time you lay eyes upon them it is like seeing them for the first time but that is a two way street, and they may not reciprocate. I used to think nice guys finished last but I don’t know if I would want to be anything but. There is a lot to be desired for a man that shows the woman in his life that she is smart, beautiful, and important. But there still needs to be more; there needs to be that chemistry, the proverbial spark that makes everything click.
Chances are we have all been in a relationship where the other person doesn’t feel as we do but that doesn’t mean it is a complete loss. We are adults, and we should have adult relationships that are honest. If this is the case, then we can learn a lot and even maybe hang onto a beautiful friendship (I tend to be an all or nothing guy).
I write this post because I have had the pleasure of meeting a wonderful person only to find myself being rejected. But you want to know something? That is okay! I have been rejected before, and I have discovered that I am capable of giving love and affection again. I am glad it did not work out because it wasn’t meant to be and I know someday I will meet the right person. This is simply another stepping stone on the path I travel. I do feel the loss of a friend, but I will survive; hell I survived divorce, and that was based on lies and deceit. It is different when the relationship ends based on honesty, kindness, and even a bit of love. I guess it reminds of the song, Pain… I would rather feel pain than nothing at all.
