You're not looking for them because you're "engaged" in what you're doing.
This is a great way to fall in love.
For example, when you're friends first, you aren't self-conscious!
There is nothing quite like that dizzying moment when you recognize that your friendship has become much more than a friendship. It's unforgettable.
Another reason you may not be looking for love is because you think you're "done with" being in love. I hear that one a lot!
Mary Tyler Moore, the beloved actress, fell in love with the doctor, Robert Levine, who was treating her mother.
You can bet she didn't plan on that one!
Because he was there in his professional role, it was up to Mary to do something to show her interest.
Robert said to Mary, "If there’s an emergency, just get in touch with me."
Mary replied, "Does acute loneliness count?"
And Dr. Levine said, "Yes."
That was the beginning of their relationship, which soon led to marriage, and which lasted for 33 years, through the rest of Mary's life.
Even a celebrity has to know when to be vulnerable.
This was Mary's third marriage. Sometimes you don't find lasting love until you've learned from previous relationships.
It's a continual learning process. And to stay fresh, you must keep learning and growing!
