He is looking for his better half. On the web. And somewhere after 842 527 searched profiles he have chosen her.

And the absolute thrill came on the scene. She`s the one!

Who`s the one?

The one which isn`t right for him in any way.

So, he went estatic, called me for an emergency cup of coffee and sat on the other side of the table shining like a star. Then he started to wagging with her printed profile.

He: Look at this! She`s fantastic!

Me: Let me see….

I`m reading…Hm…..Reading some more…Then I look at him while he is blinking estaticly with his eyes… Keep reading… Then I explode.

Me: Are you out of your mind?!?

He: Why?

Me: Why???!!!??? How did you think that this would ever work!!!!???

And he still asked why!

That s the most extreme example that I know of, but I still wonder HOW can someone think that this would work? When they try to level up something that they consider to be their fault or flaw with finding someone else who is totally opposite from them?

For example, somebody is a depressive and crancky type but he is looking for a cheerful, tolerant and opened person. Or someone with absoluetly no ambitions at all, who is lazy by default, with no passion but he is looking for someone who is successful with a shiny career, strenght of the bull and the power of the Hoover dam.

I do understand the need, when that particular someone is just too lazy to change, but how in the world he thought that he would please the person to which he is so magnetically attracted?  Or the egoism have totally hit the scale, that he actually doesn`t care what he˙s got to share with that special someone?

The excuse of mutual repleneshing simply doesn`t stands here because, for example, if we have one person who is happy-go-lucky and that person spends some time with the paint-it-black person the Happy one will start to feel bad and depressed, `cause the Black one will simply suck all the energy from his colorful batteries.

That is, if that Happy is not autistic, meaning that he doesn`t feels at all who is with him, that he doesn`t even cares or sees anyone but himself.

In this case, the mentioned Xena from the story, the loving-outdoors-warrior, would spend all her free time to her passions. Even if they would both be extremely tolerant, how and when would they be together?


The ego is a tricky thing.

Meet yourself, love yourself, embrace even the things which may generally be considered as a fault. Be even crazy in the eyes of others if this is what it takes.

But that is who you are.

That is you.

And learn to appreciate it.

Because compatibility is not just a fancy word.
