“You will allow...that man has the advantage of choice, woman only the power of refusal..." -Northanger Abbey 

Every so often, a charming man will step into your life. Perhaps you will have the same office hours, and he will make it a point to stop by and talk to you despite how much work he might have to do. And you will so wholeheartedly love these conversations that you will momentarily forget about all the work you have to do. And maybe when he makes jokes in class (which he will do often), he will look your way to see if you're laughing too (which you will be). It could be that he will call you by your last name which makes you feel like he really knows you and that the two of you could be a detective team or something of that sort. You might come to find that this man is the best person you know in this new and wild town where you live, and you'll love every chance you have to talk to him. 

But as the case so often goes, there will more than likely be a snag in your friendship/relationship with this man. The case may be that he's not a member, and no matter if he joins the Church or not, you know that nothing will ever come of it. Because it's just one of those things that you know. 

And maybe there will be another man, who is a member and who you were previously interested in, but you quite recently made a firm decision against the crush for sanity's sake. And maybe somehow now that you've decided against liking him, he might be beginning to pay attention to you. He may be brushing aside the other girls who normally swarm about him, but now you couldn't care less. 

There may be times when nothing happens with the timing you would like. 

Con Amor,

I have a big huge picture on my wall that says, "Faith in God includes faith in His timing." Yeah, there's a reason it needs to be there.
