Settling for the Best!!!

The last couple of years for me have been ever so challenging in the dating department.  I was in what I thought was everlasting relationship only to get let down by deceit.  I have met a few men who just didn't live up to the standards they talked about and I also met a man who was not ready for the commitment I desire.  These experience could make it easy for a person to settle for the next thing smoking whether they are good for them or not. 

I have decided however to refuse to settle unless it is with a person that is a good fit for me.  I am pretty sure I don't have unrealistic standards for what I require in a mate.  I want to be treated fairly and loved deeply.  I don't want to be lied to.  I want a companion.  I want trust.  I want to be able to agree to disagree.  At the age of 36 I do not want to play games.  I want consistency.  I want a friend.  I want my relationship to be blessed by God.  The list could go on and on but I don't think I am being unreasonable.

While I do see a lot of relationships and marriages ending, I also see a good population of my friends making it work...  I desire to be like them.

Just some random thoughts as I go through this season of being single...

Peace and blessing,
