The One After The One

Earlier this week, I was having lunch with my boss, mentor and friend who I'll call Rochelle. In catching up on life, I started to talk about my dating life and the impact that my first love, Charles, had on my life.

After I told the story, Rochelle made a strong and interesting observation: After you find "The One," can you be happy with another "The One"?

I know, I know... Huh?

Well, let's look at a well-known couple: Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. For years, we swore they were happy, from couple status to marriage. But then, when Brad started working with Angelina, everything changed and he and Jen were over. And that's when the world took sides. "Team Aniston" or "Team Jolie" it was, as people decided which woman was really the love of Brad Pitt's life.

Now, rumors are swirling about whether or not Brad and Angelina will last... And regardless, it's clear that no relationship is as steadfast as we think. So, was he better off being with Angelina in the long run?

Another example? Jessica Simpson & Tony Romo. After breaking up with Nick Lachey, they each went their separate ways... And Jessica told the world she was in love with Tony. But the break-up headlines and being called a jinx? Personally I thought Nick seemed like the better pick.

The point here is simply this: Sometimes, leaving someone for someone that may be the one may be a hit or miss.

I guess that's where you're taking a leap of faith, isn't it?
