For single people looking for a committed relationship, the thought of finding "the one" can be daunting -- what if it never happens?
Not to worry, says Sophie Keller, author of the "How Happy Is" series, which includes "How Happy Is Your Love Life?" and "How Happy Is Your Marriage?" Take this excerpt from the beginning of the first book, for instance:
That is where you can meet your life partner, and that is when. Remember that when you're sitting at home grieving over a failed relationship. Remember that when you are fed up with being alone. Remember that when you feel so ready and have felt that way for so long and yet he or she refuses to appear. You could be in a store, at a music festival, crossing the road, introduced by friends, in a library, in a class or at the gym. The possibilities of where you might meet are endless, and that, of course, is the beauty of it. And you don't know when that fateful moment might be, because meeting your partner is one of the things in life you cannot control, and it usually comes when you are least expecting it.
And Keller knows better than anyone -- she met her husband through a twist of fate in August 2003, and was engaged to him four months later. But whether you're waiting for the one or have already settled into a committed partnership, sometimes love can be confusing.
So in honor of Valentine's Day, Keller will be taking your questions from 10 am pst/1 pm est to 11 am pst/2 pm est on Tuesday, February 14, 2012 in a free live Q&A. For the first half hour, we'll be focusing on people in relationships -- then we'll shift the focus for the second half hour to singles.
