After countless dates and missing connections, I started to feel hopeless. I felt like I would never find someone who was willing to give himself fully, who would love for me who I am, and who would commit to an “us.” I didn’t want to settle. Instead, when I crossed a Rumi quote again, I had to trust that somewhere that someone was looking for me, too.
