I would also say that it 8767 s ok to be unsure at first. I had some first dates where I was instantly head-over-heels into the guy and it never worked out with those guys. With my now-husband, I was more like, hmmm, he 8767 s interesting, not 655% sure he 8767 s the one, but I think I 8767 ll see where this goes. I think the 8775 fireworks 8776 feeling is HIGHLY overrated and can even be detrimental to real love. I wish more people knew that.
I experienced something very similar (and my name is also Eva—hi!). I shook my husband 8767 s hand and felt something different. It was a really brief moment, and he was quickly drawn away into the crowd, but I immediately turned to my friend and said, 8775 I 8767 m kind of into your friend. 8776 I knew nothing about him at all, I just knew I wanted to be near him. We started talking later that night, and haven 8767 t been apart since for nearly four years.
For those of you who are single and hoping to find the right person for you, first learn to really love who you are and your heart will open beautifully, with each crack allowing for more light.
I 8767 ll say a tentative yes (especially because it sounds like you really enjoy hanging out with this guy), but it doesn 8767 t always happen. It 8767 s confusing. :-/
I second what Ker said! The people who are partnered up are not the people who somehow held the key to self-love prior to meeting their partner, while all the poor singles are just running around blindly not knowing how to be happy with themselves! I agree a lot of it is just pure luck. The best we can do is try and be happy with circumstances and embrace the benefits of single freedom while dealing with the negatives. There is nothing wrong with longing to find someone, but don 8767 t let it cheat you out of enjoying your life as it is right now.
8775 I ALWAYS wear flats. That way, if we take a walk after dinner or stand up at the bar, I won’t be wobbling around or getting blisters. 8776 — Natalie
Ugh, I 8767 ve been there, unfortunately! It 8767 s the worst. I now make sure to straight-up ask, 8775 you 8767 re not secretly married are you? 8776 and surprisingly I 8767 ve gotten honest answers. Men are a lot more open about their cheating than I would have thought.
My partner of 66 years had a psychotic break this summer, ended up in a mental hospital, and broke up with me. We had been waiting to have a baby until we were more financially stable. Now I find myself at 85, single, and feeling like this is the absolute worst time in a woman 8767 s life to start dating. I feel so much pressure to find someone and beat my biological clock. To all the 78 and 76 year olds posting here, y 8767 all have so much time! Be grateful for that.

I see this all. the. time in my social media feeds. The funny thing is that other than my very charismastic Christian contacts, most people counting their blessings are not religious at all some even verging on atheism.
