We like to believe that there is only one person out there for us. Just one person with whom we truly fit, to whom we can open up our souls and not be afraid.

However, for some people, such a relationship is not desirable. They do not want to share, to open up, to fit with someone. They wish merely to coexist, to drown out the howling silence that blows within them.

For them, anyone, anything is better than nothing.

The truth is that there are hundreds of people out there with whom we could fashion a satisfactory and happy life. And once we find that ‘someone suitable’, we can stop looking for anyone better.

After all, we have to get off the merry-go-round at some point, don’t we?
