Timing and The Relationship Killer

This morning, I woke up to this sunrise outside my window. It was a beautiful collision of vibrant oranges and yellows that bounced off of the clouds and lit up the entire skyline.




Just ten minutes later, it was all gone. It was as if it never even happened. Had I hit the snooze button just one more time, I would have missed everything.



Timing. Sunrise after ten minutes

Timing can be a bitch. Nothing is more important when it comes to dating and relationships. You can be compatible with someone in five hundred different ways. You can enjoy their company, love their sense of humor, and feel that no one else gets you like they do. You can love their family, have the same taste in music, and love to do exactly what they love to do. But at the end of the day, if the timing is off for either one of you, all of that goes out of the window. 


When the timing isn’t right with someone, your emotions nag you with feelings of being unfulfilled and uneasy. Your happiness is inconsistent. Today you feel like the luckiest person in the world and tomorrow…not so much.


There is no doubt that one of the worst feelings when it comes to love and dating, is having to break something off because of timing. Two years from now, they may have their sh*t together, be out of school, have more time for you, be over their last relationship, grow more secure in who they are, have their finances together, or be ready for a long-term relationship. But right now, at this moment, they don’t. And there is no guarantee that they will in the future. While there is no magically perfect moment where the heavens open up and tell you that this is the right time for you, for them, and for your relationship, there are certainly moments that are way better than others. You’ll always know when that moment comes. Trust your instincts. Don’t settle for interrupted happiness.
