Finding someone special and dating someone new can be frustrating. You want someone to respect you and want you for "you" but it can be rough getting past the initial stages. Sometimes people aren't completely honest or deliberately lie, some are not who they said at all, and some are genuinely who you seek. It's not easy figuring it out and sometimes you just have to take risks to find it. Here's some obvious but hopefully encouraging words from Wikipedia about hope: Hope is an emotional belief in the possibility of positive outcomes related to events and circumstances within one's personal life. Hope implies a certain amount of perseverance ? i.e., believing that something is possible even when there is some evidence to the contrary. Beyond the basic definition, usage of the term hope follows some basic patterns which distinguish its usage from related terms: Faith - Hope is subordinate to faith in that while hope is emotional, faith carries a divinely-inspired and informed form of positive belief. Hope is typically contrasted with despair, and because despair connotes an ignorance of religious faith, hope likewise carries a connotation being informed, when compared to despair. (In some religions, despair is considered to be a sin.) In the Christian world, hope and faith go hand in hand. Christians have faith that their savior will complete their hope in an afterlife. Optimism - Whereas optimism refers to a positive view at a conceptual or intellectual level, hope refers to a positive belief at the emotional level. While optimism may be rational and informed by facts, hope may lack a strong connection to reality. The term false hope refers to a hope based entirely around a fantasy or an extremely unlikely outcome. Positive thinking - Hope is distinct from positive thinking, a therapeutic or systematic process used in psychology for reversing pessimism. No one has it easy, we all have our struggles, and I, for one, have hope. Have a great day!
