Sacrificing your "Soulmate" over Convenience.

One lonely night I was watching the finale episode of "Master of None," an original Netflix series.  I started the series believing Aziz Ansari's character "Dev" was vain.  He constantly interrupted his friends when he received a text and he only talked about himself or gossips about others. 
Now, this hit deep.  I've been playing music a long time, have met some famous musicians and have been on the cusp of greatness as it were.  Dev, an Indian actor has the same plight. He dates a lot, works when he can, but every relationship fails in some shape or form.
I'm a millennial, I've done some great things in my life.  I enjoy people, watching our pop culture evolve, having intellectual conversations, hanging at a coffee shop and living free.
Now as I get older, I know what relationships will work and what won't.  I've tried, I've failed, I've ignored all the red flags... 
I'm ready to really care for someone, invest in someone, and fall in love.
