    That's assuming you meet the right man. But its possible.

    It never really happened to me but I think it could happen.

    You are 21, a little young to be using oneself as an example of love's chances, lol. But to the OP, love is definitely a possibility. The hope is that when you fall in love with someone they also fall in love with you, unrequited love is harsh. To some extent everyone is searching for love, or at some stage would be. But I don't imagine love is a magical thing, sometimes it happens at first sight, other times we work up to it and realize we have it, but once there its a beautiful thing.

    No, you're not naive! But as someone has already stated, you need to be patient. Falling in love will come when you least expect it.

    Now love may not be another person, it could be a puppy, or an object.

    But I am sure you will find it one day.

    I had given up on that concept; then it snuck up on me about 3 years ago and bit me on the azz.

    So far a mixed blessing, not quite the always100% joyful experience that I had envisioned it being.

    I was just being honest. I've seen it happen for other people but it just has not happened for me.

    Hey rnch! So did the azz biting ended up being a good pain in the rear? icon_biggrin.gif

    Seriously, when I was single, some of the most disappointing times were trying to find a date only to see that nothing ever materialized. I sorta gave up too and said that I was just happy being single. Then all of a sudden, two guys were interested. WTF? So then I was Reese Witherspoon in "This Means War", except it wasn't Tom Hardy or Chris Pine I had to choose from.

    After that fiasco, nothing again until I met my current bf whom I wasn't expecting to meet. It just happened. So I still believe in the concept. For me, it's much better than that disappointing feeling.

    I don't think it's naive, I mean, I'm a libra guy. I'm always looking for love or the idea of love always lingering around. It's nothing wrong for wanting that, but I am also a realist, you got to date, get to know people and test or kiss other frogs first before finding the one. (based on whatever yours or his requirements). I tried to be happy single, dating around and having a fulfilled life without the man. He is there when I don't look for him. I've been in love Once before, very intense 3 yrs ltr. While I was happy to be with him, he's not all there is in my world. In the end, we broke up because we're simply incompatible and going in different directions in life.

    In the last 35 years, I've been in love 3 times, while I had tons of crush.

    I also had relationships where I was not in love, just feeling damn good with the person, as in : why not be together if you feel better with him than alone or with anyone else..

    I love to be in love, but It's quite rare.

    The other issues is that you can be in love with someone toxic for you, or not loving you.

    It will happen, it's a cliche that it happens when you least expect it but that was the case with me. I had just moved cities, had so many plans to do with my own life and then bam! met mr right, no turning back. My advice would be just focus on being the best you because then you will attract more people your way. icon_biggrin.gif

    Love, love, love... it's the universal feeling of all the people which has many forms... can be love to oneself, love to pets, love for family, nature or things... and these kinds are real and not by chances. But, the most happiest and many great stories about love is the quest for a person destined to be yours. Why destined? Imagine we are billions and yet only one would shine after all of your long patience and for many it must be hard to find because of obstacles in environment, belief, culture and religion and it's a chance for a lifetime. Stories have been unfold that love is worth fighting for beyond these obstacles and it is challenging indeed. As the bible told me it is patient and kind which is true. Love cannot be literal because if that is so, no one would be hurt and no one would be even challanged. It is also kind because the joy it would bring is entirely different once you have experienced. A joy of giving and recieving and the joy beyond sadness the life could bring. However, love is the universal thought of being blind because it is hard to see especially nowadays the world is turning to lustful. Many are using love as a play of game to satisfy one's pleasure and many have been working for bodies brought about by celebrities, models and beauty pageants the reason many are changing the love in it's true essence. You can even buy love in exchange of good life or you can crave for even more after divorce. The probability of its essence is becoming stiff that you can be left behind. How I wish it was during my grandparents' time when love was younger, no divorce, monogamously challanging, no fear of trust issues, patient and virginity at its finest for the lovable person in a lifetime.

    How I wish I would fall in love in a mysterious way after a long journey encountering a person who is least expected and patience has inspired me to take care the saying, "I love you."

    Sometimes I wonder about the exact same thing. I do think that it'll help your chances if you were actively looking for love. I know that's probably my biggest hurdle.
