What We're Really Looking for in Relationships and Dating

Ah, online dating—the digital jungle where romance blooms and profiles loom. Let's face it: navigating the wild world of swipes and likes is like trying to find your way out of a maze blindfolded. But hey, amidst the chaos, there's a lesson or two to be learned.

I recently had a heart-to-heart with my mom, and I declared that I've got one more romantic breakup left in me. Yup, just one. From here on out, it's smooth sailing, or so I hope. Because let's be real, pouring your heart and soul into something that doesn't stand the test of time? It's like investing all your savings in a get-rich-quick scheme—a risky business.

But hey, life's a journey, right? And along the way, we rack up experiences faster than we can count. Like those days spent rehearsing dance routines for hours on end, only to find ourselves busting out moves solo in the kitchen years later. Oh, the irony. And let's not forget those countless hours spent cramming for exams, only to forget everything the minute the test paper hits the desk. Classic.

But amidst the chaos, there's wisdom to be found. Lessons learned, if you will. So, let's dive into the treasure trove of insights, shall we?

Lesson one: trust your gut. That little voice inside your head? Yeah, it's there for a reason. And let me tell you, ignoring it is like ignoring the GPS when it says "recalculating." You're bound to get lost.

Lesson two: change is inevitable, but some things are non-negotiable. Like needing attention, emotional support, and demonstrations of ambition from a partner.

And speaking of love, lesson three: if you truly love someone, you accept them for who they are, quirks and all. Trying to mold them into your ideal partner? Yeah, maybe try a pet?

But perhaps the most important lesson of all? Your values and vision for your life need to align with your partner's. It's like my Church said: it's easy to submit to someone when you're both heading in the same direction. If you're the only one chasing your dreams, it's not a partnership—it's a one-man show.

And through it all, I've learned to surrender to a higher power. God's plan will always prevail, even when it doesn't make sense to us. Breakups hurt, but sometimes, they're necessary to push us toward our God-given purpose.

So here's to taking chances, learning from our mistakes, and trusting that everything will work out in the end. After all, when one door closes, another one opens—and who knows what—or who—might be waiting behind it. Cheers to that!
