Solitude is far different from loneliness. Solitude is a choice, an exhibition of true strength. In solitude comes a peace in knowing that you choose to no longer settle for less than you deserve from another human being. You show instead that you prefer to stand alone rather than spend one more moment in a space that holds lack. And in that strength you grow, becoming more centered and healthier, creating the perfect, safe place for yourself and the one that belongs there.
When you are both ready, both whole enough to bear some of each others flaws with honesty, both of your weaknesses with grace, and your pains with gratitude, they will come.
