What a load of hooey that statement is! There is no truth to that in any way. It's just something people say to someone who's lonely. I swear my head will explode if I head that again. My eyes will pop out of my head, and flames will shoot from my ears. My nostrils will flare and steam will shoot out!
I have been divorced for nearly 14 years. I've been mostly single since then. I don't drive so I don't go out looking for men at bars or places like that. I don't date men from internet dating sites (well anymore anyway) I don't go on blind dates. I don't try to pick up men at the grocery store, bookstore, library OR hardware store. I have been NOT looking for someone for years and yet that statement has definitely not been true.
I realize that people are just trying to be nice, and that much I do appreciate, I really do. I just wish people didn't really believe that dumb statement to be true. I don't go out looking, but i'm not NOT looking either. I'm open to the possibility of meeting someone, but I don't have to have someone to be happy either. I'm ok with me and if i'm destined to be alone then so be it.
Let's all try and think up a new thing to tell people who are single and looking ok?
