Did anyone ever tell you that if you love someone you should wait for that person? However, what if that person never comes around? What if that person doesn't really want to be with you?
I know "love is patient" but don't put your life on hold for anyone.
Otherwise, you're just going to miss out on whatever experiences are meant for you along the way. Whether you decide to date or marry or just stay single your whole life, make the most of it. Travel, do volunteer work and get some hobbies.
