I have gone on good dates, bad dates, so-so dates, and incredible dates.
I have heard stories of girls dating for years to find their true bashert and I have friends who have dated only one guy, he being their bashert.

We know that G-d is the real matchmaker; nonetheless, we still need to exert our most honest efforts.
