Just realized the other day that I no longer believe in a soulmate. Doesn’t really make sense to me. Out of nearly 7 billion folk, there’s only one that I’m really going to resonate with? I already resonate very nicely with quite a large number of folk.
And in the romantic / intimate sense, I pretty much still love them all, but they are no longer in my living room.
Serial monogamy seems to work for most. But the idea that my goal in life is to make happy, and be made happy by one other individual? Way too many fun folks, of the friend and much closer varieties, to even consider it. And what about the great relationships that fade? Would we want not to have ever had those relationships, while waiting on perfection? They are all great, and each perfect in their own way.
This just popped into my brain a few days ago. I’m sure I’ll be exploring it more over the next bit of time.
