This time of year the weather is warm and the sun is out. Each year, my husband and I look forward to this time of year to get outside and exercise. We have always loved to hike, bike, and play at the beach. So far we have more than a decade of summers doing these things. I love having a partner for my active lifestyle. It makes the activities so much more enjoyable.
Not too long ago, you would pass someone in the store, see them in a restaurant or meet them in a college class and feel right away that you wanted to get to know them better. There was just something in the way they looked, or how they spoke that was intriguing to you. Slowly you would get up the courage to approach them and find some way to strike up a conversation, hoping they would find you charming or interesting. If this initial meeting went well, dates would follow and a relationship might form. For thousands of years people having been meeting this way, but not anymore.
The winter is finally over and spring is starting to appear all around. Tulips and daffodils are popping up from the ground, temperatures are getting high enough to stop wearing coats and I am feeling the urge to retrieve my bike from the garage. If you walk outside, you can’t help but hear all the birds chirping in the trees. This is of course a sign of all the spring love going on. Humans seem to have this same desire whenever spring comes around. It’s like we’ve been hibernating all winter and now, when the sun starts to come out, we come out and start interacting with people again. If you are one of those who have this desire for love, finding the right person is harder than it used to be. We now have the internet to help with our dating endeavors.
