Thinking Every Relationship (and Date) Is “the One.” I’m not saying that God doesn’t have just one person for you. I’m talking about getting fixated on the idea of finding the “one perfect person.” You can place way too much pressure on yourself and others in search of “the one.” And you can start to get down on yourself if a relationship doesn’t work out, because you’re thinking that maybe you just blew your one chance at true love and you will now be miserable forever! Don’t do that, please. Focus on finding people you enjoy being around, who complement your interests and personality. Relationships need to be built on respect and everyday habits, not just the galactic view that you have to be constantly searching for just one single person in the universe who is right for you. When you focus on having healthy, fun relationships, that is when you will find someone wonderful to be with. That person might just end up being “the One.” Or not. And if not, because you had a healthy relationships, you’ll be better prepared when “the One” does come along.
