I happened to stumble upon Mark Manson’s The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F*ck as I was perusing Amazon’s books on business (and personal) growth. The catchy title and high reviews got my attention, so it joined my cart along with other titles such as Never Split The Difference and The 2AM Principle.
It was just a year ago that I was sure I was going to die alone without finding my soulmate. The thought of that being even a minute possibility drove me to start a busy schedule of dating, where I was going out on 4-5 new dates each week. I figured that if I was going to find my soulmate, I needed to begin the work of doing so ASAP. Fortunately for me, I managed to meet her just over two months into my dating foray. In the months since I first met her, my life has changed in ways I never thought possible.
I knew she was special as soon as I met her and our initial coffee date lasted nearly three hours. The conversations flowed freely and I could tell she was someone that I was both comfortable with and enamored by. A few days later we went out to dinner on our first “official” date. I could feel a connection with her that was unlike any other I had experienced before. And so, without much fanfare, I told her all the “bad” things about me once our date was over. I could tell I really liker her and I didn’t want to waste my time or hers if I wasn’t right for her. After I finished telling her all my faults she surprised me by telling me that I was basically a male version of her. I was in awe that I had found someone who could accept me for who I was.
Two days ago I proposed to her and she accepted. I can’t fully express how happy I am to have a partner that’s so wonderful and I’m excited to see what adventures we have as we move through life together. I love you babe!
