I guess if the world had exploded in one enormous bang it would have made no difference. You would have simply shaken off your mortal coil along with 7 billion other humans. On the bright side we would have avoided all that bullying cunningly disguised as advertising for things you must buy at Christmas. Rubbish that lasts as long as snow on a busy city street.
However consider if it the end of the world was drawn out over a few days, or weeks? Would you have preferred to see those final day out on your own, or with a loved one?
If your answer is the latter, then NOW you have a second chance, unlike the guy that used to print the Mayan Calendars. The world did not end, we are still here in 2013, and it can be a new beginning for you love life.
Most of us start each new year with a new year's resolution that we try to keep. Most of us fail. So get a grip and take control. If you want to find a new love in 2013 put yourself out there. Join a dating site, or if you're fed up of staring at computer monitors, go hang out in a bar, read a book in a coffee shop or simply walk the long way round your office on the way to lunch and see who you meet.
The Mayans were not the best at predicting the future, but I'm going to have a go... if you don't take control of your love life no one else will!
Have a wonderful 2013.
