I am ready to fall in love

Standard

Has anyone really been ready to love?
Is there a certain schedule that you can mark in your calendar and finally set aside for a couple of days, weeks or even months? If there is such a thing, I wish someone could tell me the proper steps right now.

Throughout the years, I have learned to simply shrug off the comments of people around me asking, telling, and sometimes, arguing on my current romantic/relationship status. There were moments from high school to my university days that people around me started meeting new circles of friends, enjoyed the companies of other cliques, and dated people they thought were “the one.” Now, I think with the many stories I’ve heard, and first-hand experiences that I’ve witnessed throughout those years, I also learned to stay aloof from the feelings of jealousy as my friends spent more time with their significant others; anger as they share their pains from a failed relationship; and distrust as they introduce new faces with glee and beaming smiles. In that process, I’ve led myself to a comfortable state of sympathy, empathy, and patience. But, there’s that particular feeling that I missed, curiosity.

Have I never been curious about finding my own significant other?

Yes, perhaps. It is a common response especially if you’ve been around for a while in this world where many people see a relationship status as a symbol of stability or even a great opportunity for experience.

However, the difference was that I’ve never really seriously dwelt on that particular thought that required a corresponding action. Maybe, now that I am just a year from reaching my silver year, I am becoming more active in building my social circles and opening myself up to this course of being intimate with a particular person. When will I reach that point? I don’t know yet.

But, another question pops into my mind when it comes to this concern: Has anyone really been ready for love? 

Probably yes, but most likely not. This is still relative. There are different ways to see or check if anyone is ready for something. There are instances that people tend to overthink things or not even think of anything at all. It depends on the experiences, the environment, and even the expectations of a particular individual. I am not saying that it is not possible to be ready for love. Many have tried it already. There are those who seek God’s guidance, others who test the waters along the way, and those who may be unconsciously getting more aware of the factors that may affect their decisions.

With those two questions in mind, I am not really giving myself an ultimatum, but I think I’ll try to discover the answers to those as I finally step foot on the field. Maybe this time, I can say that I am open to this chance and hopefully meet someone who will share a similar curiosity which may build a strong foundation for a beginning of a relationship. I’ll just have to see.
