I’ve been dating extensively over the past two months with the intention of finding my soulmate. I knew it would be a full time job to find the woman I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. I expected to meet a lot of people, make a lot of friends, and create some great memories along the way. But I didn’t expect to find someone that I felt a strong connection to so quickly.
You see, I’ve been a serial dater the past two months. I’ve met several women – often starting off with a meeting over coffee to see if there was any chemistry before deciding whether or not to move forward with future dates. I’ve met a lot of great people, but no one I really felt a connection with. Until recently, that is.
They say that you often find your soulmate when you’re not expecting it. I wasn’t expecting to meet the woman that I just recently did. Yes, she was beautiful. Yes, she was charming. Yes, we had great conversation and what seemed like a good connection. But there were other things I felt after we said our goodbyes that I couldn’t get out of my head. It feels as though I have a deep, unspoken connection with this woman. Like we’ve met before. I feel comfortable with her already, despite the fact that I know relatively little about her. She told me that she feels as though I’m the male version of her. I feel that same type of connection with her.
Quite honestly, it scares me a little bit to think that I might have found my soulmate. Why? First, I thought it would take more work than this to find her. Second, I’m worried that its too soon for a long term relationship. I’m worried that the connection I’m feeling to her might be the result of my feeling alone and desperately wanting to find my match. Third, I’m not positive I’m ready for her yet. I feel as though I’m still going through a process of self-discovery. I feel like I may not quite be ready to ditch the fun side of being single for a long term relationship.
She’s definitely got me hooked, but I’m planning on taking things slowly with her. One thing my divorce has taught me is that I need to be careful in choosing the right woman for me for my next relationship. I’m really excited about her, but a bit guarded at the same time. Still, I can’t deny that I feel something deep inside that I haven’t felt for a very long time. You can never know the timing of things in life, so I guess its best to just go with the flow and enjoy the journey.
