    This is funny, but it's also sad in a way. The ever growing expectation that there is someone "perfect" or "freaking amazing" out there for each of us - and perhaps by association, thereby excusing us of our own faults and predilections - might be why so many people remain single.

    I don't mean to point that out to you directly, just thinking out loud.

    That's definitely true. I mean, there's only one of me so odds aren't good that people will get to date me which means they're going to have to settle.

    Oh you don't want to get me started on this! A BIG pet peeve of mine are all those RomComs where the girl is happy with the guy she's with (usually about to get married) and then meets a new guy and within days breaks up with the old guy for this new one. Yes, they usually try to make the old guy secretly stuck-up, stodgy, whatever, but the message there is, "Don't settle for the guy you've been with for years, and now suddenly develops a problem. Go with the new guy, because that'll work out well!"

    Anyway, since we're getting off-topic:

    Ah, but finding a person who is right for you is so much better than finding someone who is wrong and hoping they will change. And being comfortable in being single is much better than being with someone just because you don't like being single.

    I never said anything about settling or "being with someone just because you don't like being single."

    I simply was commenting on the prevailing and seemingly increasing expectation of both men and women these days to find someone who is their ideal, perfect match. There's a difference between the two.

    Indeed there is. I was just making the point that too many relationships end badly because people do do that. And I'm not especially sure that there are an increasing number of people doing that. I think there's less pressure to find someone and settle down at a young age, so people take their time finding someone. Or even people who've had bad relationships with the wrong person and would rather be single than do that again.

    But yeah, Rom Coms and TV shows are full of that one true love thing. Which I guess is possibly making people expect more.

    THat's about what I had in mind when I posted it. I'm perfectly happy being single, don't need a man to 'complete' me or 'look after' me thanks. So, yes, I'd want someone pretty freaking amazing to change my lifestyle.

    I don't believe in the whole soppy fairy dust romance type thing, anyway. Seen far too many people's relationships fail for that. Though many relationships fail because they're inspired from a point where one person has convinced another that "I'm the best you'll get" and the partner is scared of being Left Alone, so settles for someone unsuitable. One of the most important things people need to learn is that it's ok to be single, you're not somehow less of a full human being, and it's a hell of a lot better than being with the wrong partner!

    Perhaps some people are scared no-one will want them if they have to be worth having?

    Unless you posted that exact same image before, I'm not seeing the problem.

    That's what I might have done though, I just thought it fitted really nice :)



    Here's the way to do it -you take fourteen different navigation-devices and only follow the instructions if more than half of them agree.
