Seriously, is it bad that I’m glad your relationship ended?

Finding true love can be tough, and I happen to know several people out there constantly searching for the one, including myself. With so much match making going on, it’s not uncommon for me to hear either first hand or through the grapevine about the ending of a myriad of relationships.

Generally, when someone I know finds their special someone, I’m happy for them. And in return, if I learn of their break up then I feel bad that it didn’t work out. Recently, I discovered through Facebook (the new Mrs. Kravitz) that a male friend of mine had ended his relationship of six months to a girl who was just not right for him. Honestly, when I saw this update, I silently rejoiced that he was no longer hitched. Of course, this got me to thinking when is it ever okay to be glad that someone’s relationship has ended:

1. When it’s not a good fit.
I wish it weren’t so, but there are just some guys and gals out who are going to have a hard time finding someone worthy enough for them. My friend mentioned above, who has an amazing personality, fits into this category. When a really great guy gets saddled with some poor excuse for a woman (and vice versa or same-sex), it breaks my heart. So when I heard that he saw the error of his ways and cut her loose, I silently rejoiced.

2. What goes around comes around.
We all know that karma is a bitch especially when you’re on the receiving end. If you treat someone poorly chances are high that someone is going to do you the same way. So when I hear of that guy who figured he could treat a girl anyway he wants until she realizes she’s better than him and cut bait, I silently rejoice.

3. Misery loves company.
There are just some folks out there who just can’t seem to pick the right type of person for them, and this includes me. So when their relationship ends yet again, I’m torn between feeling bad for them and silently rejoicing that I’m not the only one who can’t seem to get it right.

I’m pretty sure that there is someone out there for most of us and it just boils down to being ready to find the right person for you. It’s not about luck but about being open and ready for that special someone to enter your life. If only all of my friends weren’t struggling so much to find a mate, then I could happily rejoice out loud for them, seriously?
