Diane and I were sitting with a single friend of ours recently. She mentioned wanting to find Mr. Right. Later in our conversation, our friend told us about her grueling work schedule. “It doesn’t sound like you have time for a relationship with that kind of schedule,” I said. Days later, we got an email from our friend thanking me for my comment, as she realized that if she wants Mr. Right to show up, she needs to create some space for him in her life.
Right after my divorce, I had my daughter living with me every other week. During those weeks, I had no time for anything other than my job and taking care of my daughter. I remember feeling that I didn’t have time in my life for a relationship. That allowed me to relax into being single without my attention thinking about a new relationship.
If you are single, do you have the time for a relatiomship? If you are in a relationship, are you allowing enough time to nurture it?
