One of them, on impulse, "friended" the other one on Facebook. They shared their post-high school and the ups and downs of modern-day life. The twosome soon discovered they had more in common than their graduation date and soon scheduled a face-to-face date of their own. This initial encounter led to a second, a third and eventually a wedding date.
This story serves as a reminder that each of us forges our own path when it comes to matters of the heart. For some, it's reconnecting with an old classmate that sparks romance. For others, it could be an unexpected encounter at an art exhibit. Or perhaps through a matchmaking service, such as It's Just Lunch.
For some people, the road to true love is an expressway. For others, it is a long, windy road with several forks, U-turns but ultimately encompasses a breathtaking ending. The important thing is to pick the route that is comfortable for you.
So, it is good practice not to compare your travels to those of your sister, best friend or the guest on your favorite morning talk show. Everything that happens to you is enriching your life, one way or another. Forge your own dating path. You'll be happier for it.
