You know that expression that everyone says to you, when they're talking about your singleness? Here it is: "oh...it'll happen when you least expect it. You won't know what hit you."
I think generally, people who are single don't want to hear that, especially from married people. The fact is, if other singles are like me, they have been hoping that the "least expected moment" will happen in the very next second. It may be the "least expected moment," but that doesn't mean it's going to be a surprise. It's become the "least expected moment" because the moment has never come, but that doesn't mean that single men and women will be surprised when it happens. They've been looking for it, looking for it for years, sometimes for decades and when it happens, they'll already have hoped that this very moment could be the one. I'm not going to be taken by surprise when I meet my wife. I'll be surprised that I've actually found her, but I won't be surprised at her--I know I'll already have hoped that she was the one, just like I do with a dozen women every day of my life.
