Extremely OT- Let's talk love! I was taking a shower the other day, and thinking about all the strange and irrelevant things as one does while taking a shower. Somehow, I started thinking about the deeply philosophical concept of "finding the one"... I mean, "teh oneoneone!!!1!11!eleven!" :laugh: Do you really believe that there is one special person, a soulmate a unique person on the world that you are supposed to be together with? If you do, then how're you supposed to find that person among billions of others? (there's an idiom in Turkish, "searching for a needle in a barn" which suits well here) Even if you do find that person, what if that person is not interested in you? What if that person is already married, or what if s/he dies a year after? If there's actually a "one" for me, there's only a 1:100 chance for her to be in my country. It's highly probable that I'll spend my life in this country, and I'm not really interested in meeting new people when I'm on vacation. I might not ever be in the same place with that person, let alone being interested in meeting others. The odds are extremely small for 2 random people on Earth to come across the other, meet, get contacts, have a chance to see each other in the future, share similar interests and cultural background, fall in love and be able to get together; especially if you're not in a Hollywood studio! It's like Pindle dropping a Jah and a Ber on the same run! (notice the analogy of Jah and Ber in the context of "the perfect match" :grin: ) If there is no such someone, what makes someone special? Or, what makes one person connected to another, since there are other equally lovable people out there! If noone is actually special, does that mean that one could do everything with everyone, like, telling secrets, write poems for etc? Oorrrrr, is it all about getting the most out of the current opportunities? Finding someone to go to the movies with, to buy presents on Valentine's Day, have children etc? Like buying a computer, hugely benefiting from it but changing it for a better one when you have the opportunity? Too many questions! :brainiac: Now go and write a 3 page essay, using this post as a guideline!
