Dating as a young adult is about exploring possibilities, and leaving home is about gaining opportunities for exploration. Combining these two factors is a recipe for finding true love, but meeting that person might not occur just anywhere. It could be that she is waiting in a far away land, or she could be the girl next door. Age and experience will help define who she is, and the lucky single person coming home will eventually discover her.
It might seem too simple to think that the perfect one is the girl who used to make mud pies or fight like a tiger with the boys in the neighborhood, but she is often the person they have been seeking. She already knows the entire family, she fits into the business well, and she has just been waiting to be noticed. Running into her at a local pub or shop might just show the single person returning home just how wonderful it can be to arrive.
