Today, I am thinking about “the one”…

Charkie shared this article from A Cup of Jo about Parenting in India with me. It was obvious that I would love this article due to the my love & admiration for India. What caught my eye in the article is that the photographer and writer Danielle met her husband when they were both working for a non-profit in Washington, D.C. They had only been dating for a year when he got into the Foreign Service, had to leave the country, and decided to get married. What a story, right?! It’s also motivated me to add to our Love/Relationship series here at Todaycommai.

My eyes lit up when I noticed that Danielle met her husband in Washington, D.C., where I am currently working. It’s always so interesting to consider where you might meet “the one” or “not-the-one.” I am in DC! Where is the man who will take me to India hiding? Haha, just kidding!! 😛 I have never dated in the “real world.” My previous relationships have either been on campus in undergrad or short-lived (2 days? 3 days?) romances in middle school. 😛 I wonder what this next year will bring me. I’m not even sure if I want to date. But it’s just an interesting thought, and I have an embarrassing confession to make. I think about “the one” a lot. For instance, if I’m sitting on the metro and a young man sits next to me, a thought crosses my mind: “What if he is my soul-mate and I just missed him like that? Will our lives ever cross paths again?”

Um… looks like I’ve been watching too many Asian Dramas and Bollywood films. LOL. Yeah, sometimes, my mind is weird. But aren’t we all a little crazy?  If I were to date, where would I meet people? In a bar? At a Yelp event? At work? None of these options seem likely. Cafe? Coffee shop? Grocery Store? Gas station (pretend I don’t know how to pump gas? Hahaha)? And what about online dating options? I’m sure it’ll come naturally and when I’m least expecting it… so I’m very excited for it all. Okay, back to my life I go… will be back with more to the series.

Where do you meet people? Would you consider online dating? (OK Cupid, How about we…, Match.com, etc)? Do you believe in meeting “the one” or finding your “soulmate”? Would love to hear your thoughts 🙂

  1. Big questions! Always interesting to think about 🙂 My mom always tells me “if you want to marry a soccer player, go to where the soccer players hang out.” So…you should really just go to India now. 😉
