I have realized that I can only love someone who is capable of love themselves. They should be able to feel empathy for complete strangers. My girl wouldn't say "go see a therapist" or "grow up and deal with it" to a distressed teenager. She would actually listen to their story before choosing whether or not to validate them. As sad as this may seem, I have yet to meet any person like this, let alone a female who's single. I've seen many women online who are such angels, so I know they're out there. I've just given up on ever finding one.
