Admitting Defeat: The Choice To Be Quirkyalone
Michaela Chung

Being alone when you want to be in a relationship is one of the toughest things a person will endure. I’ve felt exactly how you describe but as usual you said it better than I ever could. Thank you.

When I finally gave up on finding the one, it was both depressing and liberating. Then an amazing thing happened — I met my future wife! I honestly think the “giving up” had something to do with this turn in fortune. Maybe giving up allowed me to be myself again, or maybe it was just good timing. I don’t have any great advice for those here who are still looking, except to say that even if you give up, don’t give up hope.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
