If your like every other person out there, the biggest thing you want in your life
is someone to love you, and for you to give your love to in return. Some of you
may even want the person of your dreams instead of the person you have now.
There is nothing wrong with that. So if the love of a lifetime is what everyone
truly wants, why is it that so few people find it? Well, there are a couple of reasons.

Below is a list of reasons why most people never realize the love of their life.

1. They don't love themselves. I know that so many people say this, yet I am
amazed at how few really understand what it means. It really is fairly simple.
It means learning to be ok with the person you are right now, in this very moment.
Learning to be proud of who you have become. Learning to appreciate yourself, as
you are, perfectly, in this moment. Knowing you have flaws and being ok with that.
Knowing you have things to work on, and being ok with that also. If you don't learn
to appreciate your own unique beauty and self, how can you ever expect someone
else to appreciate those things.

2. Most people have no idea what their perfect mate is like. How can you ever expect to
attract the love of your life if you are unable to see what that is in your head. If you have
no idea, or a very vague idea of what the love of a lifetime means for you, you can't possibly
find it. It would be the same as someone telling you to find the town of Danville. Where would
you even begin if you had no access to a map and had to find it just by driving. You don't even
have a state to start with. Is that Danville Pennsylania, or Danville Virginia? Love is no different.
You must have a good grasp on what the love of your life would be like.

3. So many people cling to the first person who shows any sign of liking them. I am amazed
at how so many people will not buy the first car they see, or the first house they look at. Yet the
very same people will grab ahold of the first person who shows them a little attention as though
that one person were the last person on earth. There are over 6 billion people on this planet for
god's sake. Don't settle for someone until they prove to you that they are the person you are
looking for.

4. Many people are afraid to go out and meet new people. They are afraid to approach new
people and make new friends. Especially if that new person is someone they find attractive
and would like to get to know. Most people simply sit and wish for what they want. There
must always be action to get to where you want to go. You can't simply imagine yourself
in some gorgeous vacation spot, wiggle your nose, and instantly teleport there. You must
buy tickets, show up for the scheduled departure time of your plane, get on the plane, and
go to where that spot is. If you want to meet someone, you must get out and get to know people.
This really goes back to number 1. Because most people do not love themselves, they are
terrified of the rejection. But I am not a dating coach, and how to work on that area of
yourself is subject for another article.

5. You must take the time to imagine the love of your life. Feel the feelings of being in love.
Imagine the things you would do if you were in love right now. How you would treat that
other person. What their hair or perfume or cologne would smell like. Feel them in your arms
as you hug them and hold them. Hear their words fall from their lips. Even if you don't
know exactly what the person of your dreams looks like, you can imagine what someone
you would be attracted to would look like. Don't get caught up on one specific person.
be open and willing to receive the type of person who would help you feel wealthy in
the arena of love and relationships.

6. Open yourself up to receive love. So many people want specific things, and being
specific about what you want is important, however, do not be specific about how
you acquire that thing. Allow the universe to do it's magic. If you imagine the person of
your dreams coming to you in a very specific way, like through a job or a hobby, you
are limiting the universe to only those specific areas. The universe is much greater and
more vast than we can imagine. Allow it to use it's resources to bring you what it is you want.

7. The moment that the universe offers an opportunity, take it. The second you feel an
impulse or a feeling to do something or move in a specific direction, or the moment something
happens that seems like a "coincidence," move. Take action. Do not hesitate. Do not delay.
Don't even blink. Take action and take action immediately. That is your sign from the universe
that the opportunity has come. Take it, and move forward.
