Relationships Are Like Cars

Finding the perfect partner requires a bit of patience.

Recently, I was in need of a new car. Generally, I am impatient with most things, and I was disappointed when I saw the cars in person. After a while, I began to feel discouraged, thinking that I’d never be able to find a reliable car that could handle my reckless driving and fit within my budget. My list of requirements was far longer than the number of cars available to me. It seemed I would have to compromise on what was most important to me, and I settled for cars I knew I wouldn’t be satisfied with. My mother encouraged me to keep looking, saying, “You have to be specific, like you are with guys.”

Car searching is tough. After doing your research, you have a clear idea of what you are looking for and begin your search. You find that no cars meet your requirements. Some have too many kilometers, some may have a few dings or scratches, some may be too expensive, and you might not get the sunroof you wanted. You feel hopeless and think there may not be a car for you.

It’s similar when you start dating. You have a clear idea of what you’re looking for, but nothing feels right when you date and try out different people. They may be too tall or short, they may have had bad relationships in their past, or they may not be interested or at the same life stage as you. You might have a great relationship with them on paper but not in person. You start to feel hopeless and think there is no one out there who can be your match.

Then, you see the car off in the distance. It’s fuel-efficient, well-maintained, and runs smoothly. It’s not shiny and brand new, and you may not get all the bells and whistles and features you were hoping for, but it is within your budget and suddenly becomes exactly what you need.
