good things come to those who wait??Page 2 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
"I noticed your looking for someone to hang out
To me that means girl comes over watches TV has sex & leaves. ".

This sounds so awesome, and I was planning to buy a second hand chair and ottoman anyway.

Good things come to those who wait AFTER they have done everything they could to prepare for and cause the good things to happen.

Otherwise, you're waiting on random chance and you'd have better luck playing the lottery.

OP, you might want to start with that profile. You're too old to have a profile that looks like it was written by a thirteen-year-old. If you want to attract, you need to work on being attractive, and that profile isn't doing it for you.

Sometimes, it's more like good things come up and slap you across the face when you least expect them too.

The moral is that you may want something, and you should definitely try for it, but sometimes you can try too hard when that something isn't ready to be yours yet. Sometimes you just can't force it. But if you stay awake, and receptive, if it was meant to come your way, it will. Just don't fall asleep at the wheel.

Happy dating!

Any hunter or fisherman, for that matter knows all about the waiting.

Thing is, waiting in the right spot at the right time with the right gear and having the right skills beats waiting at home surfing the internet every single time.

(I was gonna put something about the right bait but I started to get sick of my own analogy)

You have a really nice way of explaining this..Mr. igore

Yes, haste is waste and get to research the subject befor you leap, if it"s an application for a position or aperson of interests. Patience is a virtue but pays off, they say don"t jump befor you leap.

Not all people have the tools to work for us because that is also learned. God they say Puts people in places, maybe their our angels to guide us, well I feel they are.

I feel there is some that guide us each on this site in the right direction. Remember to stay with in...with FOCUS.....which is important

Life is perfect, then all of a sudden you meet a man, who falls madly in love with you.
Good things come when your life is perfect anyway, from your own endeavours, because if it wasnt, he wouldnt be interested in you any way, usually when you have emerged finally, after years of stress and duress, from a hideous marriage, which you would never reinact.

Then when he leaves you, your life is so imperfect, due to his love,and his hate for your family and friends, his jealous streak etc , you wonder why you bothered, and you say to your self , I probably wont bother again.
Yes.

Even if you don't wait, even if you take the bull by the horns, even if you MAKE LIFE HAPPEN, it's still no guarantee that good things will come your way. For me, I make my life happen. But you can't make love happen. That depends upon another person, and so far I've found other persons to be highly unreliable in this arena.

OP: You are correct. Good things do come to those who wait, but only if you are rich. Rich enough to buy any thing you want.

Well, then, I suppose that I'm going to get something REALLY good, since I have been "waiting" plenty long enough.

I second that.

of course good things do come to those who wait. The problem is how long does one wait?

I have to say, I'm still waiting for my mister right. Was close to it b4 but meh didn't work out.

U just gotta have patience and do alot of dating and be picky.

That's what my Mom said today and I know she's right. But, I don't sit at home hoping it will happen I get out there and enjoy life. With so many functions going on and through my friends I've met a lot of good people. Am taking things slow but am looking forward to the New Year!!!

There's an 'ancient Chinese proverb' that I keep in mind: "A person must wait a long, long time with his/her mouth open before a roast chicken flies in."

As in playing poker, life seems to be a 'game' of patience and well-timed appropriate action.

"A person must wait a long, long time with his/her mouth open before a roast chicken flies in."

I like that...lol.

good things come to those who wait??

I have heard this for years as well.
I interpret is...Not being needy...be open for someone to find you but not to grab just anyone...be patient...Like others have said.
I have my fingers crossed...

The one thing I did learn about life is that if you want something. You must go out there and get it. No one has done anything or got far in life by sitting in a corner and waiting. There is not one succesfull person out there who was sitting around and just had things handed to them.
For people who seem to wait for everything they seem to have lots of bad things come to them as well.. There is nothing that says ONLY good things come to those who wait.. Sitting around doing nothing is for lazy people.
Its same in everything in life... You tell those things to people who can't get anywhere in life to make them feel better. keep there hope up while they are still draging there feet on the road of life.
