A mother's advice.
“It's not fair. I'm a college student and you guys are my parents, but you have more fun than me.”
“That's because we're soulmates. Your time will come.”
“When? I feel like life is passing me by.”
“You're only twenty-two. Don't rush things.”
“But it's impossible to meet a nice guy these days. I want a boyfriend who is loving and sensitive, but those guys already have boyfriends.”
“Don't be silly. There are plenty of nice boys. You just haven't met the one for you yet. You will. Give it time.”
“I don't know. My generation is different than yours.”
“Since time began, people have said that. In some ways, people are always the same. Love is still love and always will be. Someday, you'll meet a guy and it will be perfect.”
“How will I know? Maybe I've already met him and missed my opportunity.”
“You'll know. Girls always know.”
“How did you know?”
“Before I ever saw him, I heard his voice and I knew. There's something about your father that is unlike any other man. Something that makes him special for me. That's why I say we're soulmates.”
“Mom, a boy asked me to marry him.”
“Is he the boy you can't live without?”
“No. Not really.”
“Then he's not the one. When I was young, my mother gave me the best advice I ever received. She said never settle. I didn't and I'm happy. Now, I'm passing that advice on to you, never settle.”
