As a romance author, I clearly have a soft heart (or a soft head, according to some people). I believe in the power of love and happily ever after (and no, my life hasn't been that proverbial bed of roses). You might be familiar with the Eric Idle song, Always Look on the Bright Side of Life? (or not, I'm including a link if you want a giggle). Life isn't always perfect. Our significant others aren't always perfect, but as I tell my husband when he comments on how much he hates the cat after she's barfed up her dinner, "but you love her all the rest of the time, right?" (He won't admit it, but he does.)
My personal opinion is that love starts with you. You have to be comfortable alone before you can be comfortable with someone else. My husband is a very independent man, and I know that he doesn't need me in his life - he wants me in his life. Knowing that allows me the freedom to be who I am. He doesn't depend on me for his happiness. Likewise, I love having him in my life. He is generous and supportive and kind and loving (and hard-headed sometimes). Even when I get really mad at him, I wouldn't trade him for anyone else.
When I was dating, I remember a friend telling me I was "too picky" after I'd throw one of the frogs back into the pond. But you know what? I didn't want to settle. I wasn't looking for someone to keep me from being alone, I was looking for someone I could co-exist with, someone I actually liked and who understood me for who I was.
