Did it work? I’m sorry I’ll offer hugs for all who need them. Maybe a discount on a dance
I am ok with this. I don't believe in soul mates. I am married and love my wife but still, had I not found her, I believe I would have found someone else. That person would have made me more happy/ as happy/ less happy than I am now. And despite that belief, I wouldn't change my decision. The fact that there might be (probably is) someone who might be a better fit, doesn't make me love my wife any less. It doesn't take away from how absurdly awesome she is and how much I live to make her happy. We found each other. We make eachother happy. We are a team that strengthens one another. That's enough. That's a lot. To those who think they'll never find 'the one', I say "you might be right." But there are so many great people (at least 200 out of the 7billion) out there who are at least a 90% match. I'm not saying to settle, I'm saying that you shouldn't give up. This was more Facebook than FP but still. I think people should know. A lot of people out there seem sad so.. yeah.
@Canis Arktos, I already tried to post a reply but it didn’t look like it went through so I’m doing another and if it shows up twice then whatever. Long story short I’m in a circumstance of life thats teaching me everything you’re saying and I want to tell you how much I appreciate your words as affirmation that life doesn’t really always go as planned or hoped for. But love is something that’s built, not something that’s happened upon, and it’s still just as worthwhile, maybe even more so for it. You’re absolutely right. Thank you for taking the time to speak. It meant a lot to me.
@Canis Arktos, that was amazing I need to save that insane how well you put it
@Canis Arktos, let's be real though a 100% match would not be 100% due to the fact that eventually he or she would get on your nerves cause you'd never have things that you could do by yourself.
I'm with you though, each person has thousands of potential mates and we adapt to better suit the one we choose to be with.
@Theblackshawarma, for future reference, when making long comments it's helpful to highlight the whole comment and click copy BEFORE you post. That way if something goes wrong you can try again without rewriting the comment.
@Caine, a 100% match would include knowing how much time to spend apart. Everyone needs time to themself now and then.
@Canis Arktos, marriage takes work, not perfect compatibility.
@Canis Arktos, crazy things happen man I was sure I wasn't going to find someone that I can be myself with and have the same interests with so I totally agree with you, no were not perfect but 6 years ago she moved here from Russia so she was literally on the other side of the world and we somehow found each other which is something that still amazes me
@Canis Arktos, yup. Love is also something that grows. So while there might have been someone out there somewhat more compatible than the woman I chose, the mature relationship I have is better than the new relationship I’d have if I switched. We have shared memories and shared understandings - and shared kids. :)
@Canis Arktos, n!gga you gay
@Toad, you are definitely right. I wanted to mention that and a few other things but I figured my post was already pretty long.
@Saxamo, and, much to the dismay of one of my friends, I am not. Sorry.
@ForgottenInTime, happy it all worked out
@I Are Lebo, I think a comment by toad sums it up well. It's just a little bellow yours. I agree that there's work. Everyone I've ever met, most movies and tv shows, they all say that marriage takes work. Still, some relationships are worth the work, and some just aren't a good fit. I meant to discuss finding someone worth working for. That's all. I also could have written a hundred other things I've learned (or think I've learned) but my post was getting long already (as is this one).
@Canis Arktos, I think you and I have very different definitions of a long post.
@Canis Arktos, lies.
This is still strangely inspirational. Gives motivation to the eternal progression of one's life. A fire to keep walking forward. The quest.
notice me senpai
There may be a person who likes you, but no matter what there will always be a person who doesn't even know you and hates everything about you with a passion to wipe your kind out of existence.
I-i'll take one of those free hugs... ;-;
Whats this depressing com.....oh i see now carry on
Kind of like my exgirlfriend who was pretty much me all the way down to our similarly exclusive sexual attraction to women
DONT YOU PUT THAT ON ME
DONT YOU PUT THAT EVIL ON ME
Haha jokes on you, I've already met them... And then killed them and consumed their soul
Shel Silverstein had a better version of this comic in a poem comic called Masks
@Sluggernot, you forgot to move up your hipster glasses and begin with "well, actually..."
@Sluggernot, joking aside I look forward to following your referral. Thanks.
@Canis Arktos, googling shel Silverstein masks brings it right up
@Sluggernot, I just did, and that is an awesome poem.
I dont want to meet some oine who likes and does the same things as me, im an asshole and hate myself id probably hate them too.
@dont hate masturbate, dont hate masturbate
That is a lie... I met that person online a year ago... and I can say She is My soulmate BC only She could cure My depression
PFFT what are you talking about?
*22 years later*
Welp,i guess you're right
I met mine or at someone who seems to be this (1.5 years in and no one can see the future). However the comic is partially right, she was on the other side of the world
