ya know..have to agree with most posters on this topic. You DO have to be happy with and love yourself, even before contemplating making someone else a meaningful part of your life, but buddy..despite what most have said, and I find this true for myself, as others have also...
being with the right person DOES make you feel complete.
Before I met my boyfriend(working on relationship to take to 'partner' stage), I loved myself and felt TOTALLY complete and sure of myself. It wasnt until i met him, that i discovered that there was a part of me, never before discovered. A part that was not totally complete. A part that was just waiting for the right person to fill it.
Now, when we are apart, it feels as if a chunk of me is missing. He is that chunk. And before meeting him, i never even knew there was anything out of place. And he feels the same.
so, good luck, buddy. Become totally complete with yourself, love yourself...and then find that someone that makes you totally whole. Or, as in my case, let that special someone just drop into your life out of the blue, with no design or plan, whatsover.
You know, sometimes, love at first sight does happen and the chemistry is instant, its not just in the movies....it happens in real life. I know.
