I can understand where you are coming from as far as not wanting to sit at home alone. My current situation leaves me with no room to judge anyone. I just wanted to throw a few things out there for you.
If I were you I would see how things go in her search before looking for someone outside the relationship. It sounds like she is looking for something fairly particular and even then finding someone meeting those criteria doesn't mean she will have a connection with her. Plus, if you search you may find someone that you might be surprised about having deep feelings for, and if that were to happen how would she feel if she is not finding what she is looking for? I have found that wanting one thing and actually achieving it are not nearly as simple as it seems in theory.
I wish you the best no matter what!
