When you’ve done your time, or so it seems, and you’ve done everything you know to do, it can be hard to endure singleness, especially when you are convinced you are ready for the next chapter. When you’ve told yourself that you don’t care if you ever find a spouse, but then suddenly realize you care more than you ever wanted to admit, how do you wait patiently?
