The Only Exception

Who here has seen the movie 'He's Just Not That Into You'? Okay, I've seen it more than once but its still an excellant movie. There's one part of the movie that talks about 'the exception.' This is when the guy does everything he possibly could wrong, but still manages to be into you and make you his. This is when the reason why he didn't call you was actually because he's not too good with keeping their phones near them. It doesn't have anything to do with you, or how much they love you it has to do with the way that they are.
But here's the main question. How do you know when your someone's exception? How do you know that you're not the annoying girl that texts them and they secretly want you to go away?
The obivious answer is that you don't.
However the real answer is that you actually do. Are you confused yet? Okay good, I'll clarify it for you because it's a lot easier than I'm making it seem.
When something's right for you, you just know. It's somewhat of a lightbulb phenomenon where it just clicks, and everything falls into place. Sounds like a bit of a cliche, but like most cliches they are annoyingly true. Sometimes, the person who is meant to be your soulmate won't call because of whatever reason. And that's okay because they do other really nice soulmate like things like ask you to marry them or something like that.
It's also about how well you know the person, as well. If you know that someone's not a slave to their phone, then you shouldn't sweat it when they don't answer it.
We live in a society where if we don't get an instant reply then we're wondering what we did wrong or they are idiots. We never realize that there are reasons as to why someone's not answering their texts. At the same time, we have to not make them feel guilty about needing a break from technology. If they don't want to talk, then they shouldn't have to. So, if someone's not going to call you it's not the end of the world.
The rules of dating in my opnion are so muddled and blurred that it is beyond insane. Nowadays, the woman asks the man out instead of the man asking the woman out. We've evolved so much since my grandparents' generation of going out dancing and the farthest you would go is second base. The women has respect for themselves, were a 'lady', and was never seen pining over a man. Sometiimes, I wish that we can go back to that versus our ways of waiting for someone to call.
The exception of the rule is a friend of a friend. You don't get names. They are so close yet so far. But, they happen. This leads to my question...what is the only exception?
So the only exception is your story. It's the love story how you meet your partner. It's the tears that you cry on your pillow, the moments of flying high when you're in love with someone, and that moment when yo just know that your partner is the one. Your story is yours, it's unique, quirky, and something that is better than anything that Nicholas Sparks has ever written. You just know, it makes you smile and laugh. 
Cliche? yes. True? Absolutely.
