Hi there, hope you doing great.

With all do respect, your love life is in hand the of God, after that is up to you how you look for it and what you do after you find the one.

Don't give your power to any human being or any object, God made you a powerful and an intelligent human being, take advantage of that greatly and live your life to the full.

If you believe in God make lots of prayers that will open more doors that you never imagined.

I hope you get this message.

Your sister in humanity.
