I've done quite well for a lady who has lived on her own for over 15 years. I don't even miss romance, though occasionally the desire crops up to meet that special someone.
For years I avoided relationships like the plague but now I've gotten to the point that the right relationship would be a nice thing to have. I was puzzled about how to attract this, however. I had read tales of women who made space in their closets, rearranged their garages to make room for "his" car, and even changed their sleeping habits to accommodate the mate they wished to attract.
None of these things felt right to me. I live in a very small home (by choice), so if I did happen to enter into a relationship, him living with me here was not an option. I have no desire to move elsewhere so that I can make room, so what's a single mom to do?
Since a relationship would be nice (but not necessary), I simply put the wish out into the universe for the perfect person to come into my life at the right time. Whenever he showed up would be fine with me because I am actually rather content with my current life.
In the months since I made the wish a startling thing has happened. More men notice me than ever before and try to attract my attention. None of them have felt like "the one" so I've simply thanked the Universe for the sign that the right person is on his way and went on with my current, happy life.
I know that I have some emotional barriers to still deal with so occasionally I read books or watch movies about women who meet men that are determined to overcome the hurdles that their ladyloves erect around them. Since I've started doing that, several gentleman have became rather dogged in the pursuit of my attentions. Still, none of them feel like the "right" one, so I've given thanks to the Universe and carried on.
The other day I was sitting at the laundromat when my eyes fell upon a book in the lending pile there (customers add or borrow books as desired to keep the pile alive). It was a romantic story about the single mother of a teenaged child who finally encounters Mr. Right.
A chill went down my spine when I saw that book. I just knew that the Universe placed it there for me to read so I took it home and devoured it. Like me, the mother worked hard in her own business but also had a job in the food service industry to support her child. I won't bore you with too many details but that little book was like a personal letter from the Universe saying "you're on the right path; he's on his way."
While I still haven't met him (that I know of) I am confident that I am on the right track. While I doubt that my romance will be as fast as they depict in romance novels, I am confident now that I won't be single forever.
What have you attracted lately?
