Every once in a while I’ll talk to one of my single friends about finding that right person.  Often times I’ll tell them to just make small talk with the strangers around you – you could open a door to a new relationship or at the very least you can improve your socializing skills.  I randomly found this quote today and it reminded me of all those conversations I had with my friends.

I used to feel so alone in the city. All those gazillions of people and then me, on the outside. Because how do you meet a new person? I was very stumped by this for many years. And then I realized, you just say, ‘Hi.’ They may ignore you. Or you may marry them. And that possibility is worth that one word.
