Is There Really Someone Out There For Everyone?

Love, Heartbreak

In all honesty there may or might not be someone for you. It all depends on what you're looking for.

The thought that keeps many single people hopeful is the belief that there is someone in the world for everyone.

This may or might not be true depending on the type of person you're looking for and the type of relationship that you want to have with this person.

So, in actuality, it really comes down to the specific type of relationship that you are looking for that will ultimately determine if there's a match for everyone in the world that wants one.

It all comes down to what you want to have with another person.

If you are even the slightest bit unclear as to what your various relationship options are, here are a few possibilities to consider:

1. The one night stand
Just about any decent looking person can score one of these. Usually, these happen just because a person has an itch that needs to be scratched. You get all dressed up and hit some of the more crowded and popular bars and/or clubs to meet someone. That's where you'll find other people just like you that are looking for those few minutes or few hours of physical intimacy with someone else.

This is pretty simple to make happen. The downside of it is that for many people it turns out to be less than fulfilling. In fact, it can actually only make that emptiness inside of you that much more lonely. For others, though, it does the trick until the next time the itch starts.

2. Friends with benefits
This one is better than the one night stand but doesn't require a commitment from either party. These are two people that like a lot of the same things and are attracted to each other sexually. While this may sound a lot like the beginning of a real relationship, it can actually be the result of a good friendship. This is all some people require to be happy.

3. A relationship where a couple are in love and live together with no intentions of getting married
These couples can be either monogamous or have an open style relationship. This type of relationship is becoming more popular in recent times for many reasons.

4. Traditional relationship
This is where a couple is in love with each other and choose to follow the approach of actually getting married. This relationship is a lot more difficult to have than the other ones because it's much more serious. In a marriage, two people are committing to each other and making some pretty strong promises to each other in the process.

They're promising not to be with anyone else and to stay together in good times and bad times until death parts them. This is the ultimate goal of many single people and is the hardest to attain, yet it CAN be done.

5. Trial relationship
This one is certainly an option, but it's not very common. A ceremony is conducted that binds a couple together for a certain time period, usually one year. If, at the end of that time, they want to enter into a traditional marriage, then that is what will happen. If they've decided it's not what they wanted, they can part ways peacefully.

So, all in all, there just might be someone for everyone in the world. It just comes down to what type of relationship you are looking and ready for.
