Sometimes it is so hard to find someone to connect with. When you're single, it seems like everyone else isn't. As you get into your late 20's and early 30's, most of your friends get married and those who aren't have long standing relationships. Holidays like Valentines Day come and go and yet you still have nobody special in your life.

Although singles groups and internet dating can be great ways to meet people, you don't always want to force things to happen. Why is it that everybody else you know can meet people easy? Going to a singles outing to purposely try to meet someone seems so unnatural. There's no romance or love at first sight or anything else you normally read about in regards to finding your soul mate.

What if you found someone you connected with but they happened to be your friends ex? Is it acceptable to go forward with that relationship? I guess it all depends on the circumstance. But, it has happened to me. I was so tired of clubs, bars, and singles events.

One of my best friends remained friends with an ex she had a long standing relationship with. She moved on and was currently in a new relationship. On occasion, her ex would come out on the weekend and I started to get to know him better. Although we talked a bit when they were dating, I really got to know him better and I started to develop a crush. I caught him flirting with me from time to time so I began to notice he felt the same way about me.
