That’s the way it is

Standard

Do you personally know any man who is wonderful and clean at heart, very talented, presents himself just fine, very committed to the things he takes up, religious and dedicated, earns decently well and yet isn’t able to find a partner for marriage? Well, I have a friend who’s facing exactly that issue.

I always thought the path he was on was that by choice, however recently I figured it wasn’t so. I wouldn’t call him old, but let’s put it as he puts it.. He says, most people his age are married years back and have 5 year old kids now. It’s not like he’s never dated or been in relationships before, it’s just that things haven’t worked out and he’s still not found his better half.

After having my little discussion with him, I pondered over a few things. This guy certainly doesn’t deserve this kind of life. And I’m not just saying this because he’s a friend.
One relationship has already been hard on him and facing further rejection is doing no good to his attitude towards life. If I had to list any negatives, I wouldn’t be able to find a single one, of course it’s a different story that he loves annoying me and arguing with me to the point I feel like pulling his hair!! But he really is a super great guy.

If this was someone just plain lazy, non focused, not serious, someone with a care a damn attitude, a womanizer, a gambler, a boozard.. you get the drill..  I would’ve thought the person as non deserving of marriage. However, thinking of his case makes me wonder why is he in this position, it’s somehow unfair.

Anyway, it isn’t like I can offer any advice to him on how to lead his life and find a partner, I ain’t some love guru. The least I can do is pray things go well for him and leave it to destiny. Best wishes are always there!

Celine Dion’s words may provide him with some comfort.

I can read your mind and I know your story
I see what you’re going through
It’s an uphill climb, and I’m feeling sorry
But I know it will come to you

Don’t surrender ’cause you can win
In this thing called love

When you want it the most there’s no easy way out
When you’re ready to go and your heart’s left in doubt
Don’t give up on your faith
Love comes to those who believe it
And that’s the way it is

When you question me for a simple answer
I don’t know what to say, no
But it’s plain to see, if you stick together
You’re gonna find a way, yeah

So don’t surrender ’cause you can win
In this thing called love

When you want it the most there’s no easy way out
When you’re ready to go and your heart’s left in doubt
Don’t give up on your faith
Love comes to those who believe it
And that’s the way it is

Yours Truly,
