Hashem chooses the right one if you are open to Him.
I met my beloved David, because I chose to love and be loved. He passed over last October, I miss him everyday.

BASHERT TO BELIEVE IN
There is no "special one" for you until you choose to love. Don't think of it before you meet (l'chatchila), but once commit (b'dieved), you have your bashert.

How do you know you are choosing to love/ letting your guard down to the person right for you?

Divine intervention is daily
I have to say divine intervention is daily. I look at even the simple task of waking up in the morning as an intervention from GD. I love the film it because of the hope of believing everything will be fine. But also because it has the last name that gave me my Ashkenazi roots!!

It always happens
There is always Devine intervention in everybody's "shidduch", in every case,with no exceptions, because your shildduch or bashert is decided before you are born. And G-d makes sure you meet. There are not coincidenses, no accidents. Everything is planned. But sometimes a person pushes away his bashert for ridicules superficial reasons. Also you singles out there, remember to pray,pray, pray. for this is what will bring him/her sooner. Read the beautiful comment posted by Ellis (3), Feb. 13th. Mazel Tov! , Ellis. I'm so happy for you. May you have a long and beautiful life together, blessed with beautiful, healthy and successful children, who will also realize the power of prayer.

it does happen...
It does happen...when you least expect it. When I wasn't looking for it...actually, trying not to accept it. G-d placed the most beautiful man...my Dovid...David, may his memory be for a blessing..in my life. Though he is no longer with me on this earth, he will be in my heart and my soul for the rest of my life. So, yes...it can and does happen, in G-d's own time, and I will be forever grateful that it happened to me!

In my case "yes"
Was praying on Rosh Hashanah to meet a "nice girl" in the New Year. Met my future wife before Yom Kippur.

if only it were so simple..... :)

If you only knew how much simpler it really is. One event to lead to a sequence of events to lead you in the hands of your partner. Thats what happen to me except I was ready for it and unconsciously was being prepped to meet so person for a year. Allow it to happen be prepared and let those bad/good events/changes happen. Let Gd do the matching!
