When You Find The One

I dread that question. I know it’s coming, but I don’t want to hear it. To hear it means to answer it, and it won’t be easy.

When will I know if he or she is The One??

It’s a tough question to answer, isn’t it? On one hand, you want to tell them that HE (OR SHE) WILL NEVER BE GOOD ENOUGH FOR MY BABY!! Then again, part of you wants to make sure they find the happiness you did. I remember Eldest asking me a long time ago how I knew Hubby was the man for me. I told her a simplified story, but the truth is, he was the one that made me laugh at everything. That was how I knew. It took years for us to adapt to each other as one, but I knew.

I never asked my parents that question, probably because I was afraid of the answer! But it boils down to what he or she is willing to sacrifice for the other. Seeing the imperfections that make them perfect in the others’ eyes, and knowing that at the lowest point, they will help carry the burdens.

I can’t pick their soulmates. I can only guide them through that minefield. But if one day, my daughter texts her boyfriend about how bored she is in her History class, and ten minutes later he bursts into the room, screaming, “THERE’S A TROLL IN THE DUNGEON!! Thought you ought to know…” and pretends to faint in front of the class, I will let her know that he is a keeper 😉

    Now, THAT would be an epic boyfriend! An epic girlfriend would volunteer to join him as he’s suspended. LOL

    The One will never ask you to change yourself to suit their idea of what a “perfect couple” are like, especially if that idea is based on TV and movies and watching how others behave when they know they’re being watched. The One will know that peple change over time, but will never try to force their spouse to change into what they want.

    No one is good enough for Lemurita.

    But he will have to pass The Daddy Test before I will give him a pass. If he flinches he’s doomed. The girl will be a much tougher test of his mettle.

    The best way to learn about a possible love interest is to watch them interact with their friends at gatherings. It is too easy to behave when one is out on a one on one date.

    If that person is still funny and kind then you got yer keeper.

    So endeth the lesson. 😉
