it only takes one

It only takes one

When we say, “it only takes one” people tend to think that this is a rehearsed line and that we are trying to ‘fob’ members off BUT, Helen’s journey proved that it really does only take one. We hear the frustrations Helen faced on a daily basis and when we say, it just takes one person, one profile for it to turn it around – we really do mean it!

This is what Helen had to say:

“From time to time I would phone Friend’s 1st with a sense of frustration and disappointment and with impatience and timing that did not seem to be working for me.

In October I moved house and had shelved the idea of meeting anyone even close to my ideas or hopes. I positively decided to let go of any ideas, expectations or even trust trust that there could or would be anyone out there that would be available to connect to. I decided to focus on my own work, family and projects.

The day I had arrived in my newly purchased house on October 2nd 2018, there was a pile of post. One letter had been here on the doormat for a few weeks judging by the postal date. So I opened this one first. It was a brief yet carefully written letter from a fellow subscriber to Friend’s 1st. I thought t it was possibly too late now to make contact. However, I did text a message to this person, out of respect and politeness to say thank you. Later the same day we spoke on the telephone. The following week we agreed to meet for coffee and a chat. It was a very delightful meeting and we seemed to click like old friends; as if two gloves that had become adrift, were now together again. Gradually and slowly we are getting to know each other and it has brought much calm, joy and pleasure into our worlds. It is my 70th year this year and I was divorced in 2005. Finding a loving, kind and supportive companionable person in my 70th year; a jubilee.

On the second meeting with Graham a telephone call came from Sarah at Friend’s 1st making contact with him, to ask him how he was fairing. I was sitting right opposite and he volunteered to say; “I am sitting opposite a very lovely lady from the contacts with Friends 1st and we see to be getting on just great”. No one can create this kind of timing in life. Most of us if not all of us are far too controlling and planning and it so often is true that when we let go of our own limiting self directed ego that grace and the Divine spirit can create synchronicity for us to meet a potential partner.”
