    "Nearly all marriages, even happy ones, are mistakes: in the sense that almost certainly (in a more perfect world, or even with a little more care in this very imperfect one) both partners might be found more suitable mates. But the real soul-mate is the one you are actually married to."

    J.R.R. Tolkien

    This coming from a guy who wrote a series of books on a cursed ring that the characters risked their lives to destroy? :hsugh:

    I was reading a book by Scott Adams, author and cartoonist of the Dilbert series and he had a little mention on soul mates, it was something along the lines of:

    If everyone out there has one soul mate, how is it that they are more often than not in driving distance? You'd think that they would be further apart or in another part of the world completely different. Yet when two people seperate it seems that another soul mate is found also within driving distance.

    It was an interesting thought :hs:

    To take care of this...you don't settle until you've found a perfectly suitable mate. That's the problem here...people settle.... they don't want to be alone, they're afraid.....oh boo fuckin hoo and go be miserable.
