What do you believe?

And so I wonder, which one are you? Are you the one who believes that there is another person walking this earth meant for you and you alone? Are you the one that thinks that God has created another half, just for you, and that you will one day meet this person and suddenly you two will fit together like no other, making you realize that those people before were great, but not right, puzzle pieces that could be finagled together if you cheated a little bit with a bend here or a squeeze there, but it's not the same as when two designated pieces slide in together just so. Or are you the type to think that relationships take work, that they are a choice, that two people are brought together by happenstance and then it is up to those two people to choose a life together, to choose each other with all that it entails. Do you believe in destiny? Fate? God's Plan?
Maybe you are like me, and you don't know. Having faith that God has created a match for you or for me seems like the better option, as in you can go about your day and not worry about the anguish of rejection and break-ups, because you can believe that there is someone better for you out there, in this giant maze, and that sure this hurts but just have Faith. You'll meet the right one. That person, while they seemed amazing and great and sure you could see a future together and all that, but that person was just shy of “the one”.
And I asked my friend Jamie about her thoughts on “the one”, seeing as how she just got engaged in a swirl of romance. This was her reply: I think "the One" is about making a choice in your life to make someone work. It's about timing and where you both are in your life. Also, Simon treats me better than I treat myself. I have never felt this kind of love in my life.
This sentiment makes me both happy and sad, but mostly happy.
