In addition to that earlier blog, my cousin, senged pubes and all, was having a bad day and went off on a rant of her own. She said that I can put it in my blog, so here goes:
What do you think of when you think of when you think of the term "soul mate"? Is it someone that you can be happy with for the rest of your life? A person who knows all your little neurosis, but loves you anyway(and might even think it's cute)? "He" is that one dream you've had since you were a child. No matter how much you change and grow through the years, "he" stays the same. Because it's not really about your ideal, it's about the idea that there is just one man/woman for you. And that he, above all other men, is the one that is going to love, honor, and charish you, the way you deserve to be, for the rest of your life. Do you still believe in such a person?
Plato believed that men and women were once joined together physically. Then one day we angered the gods and they split us apart. Now we are destined to rome the earth to find eachother, to be reunited once again.
Some people believe it's spiritual. That our true love is pre-ordained. We don't choose who we devote our lives to.
The dictionary defines it as “a person temperamentally suited to another.”
For the era we live in it's not "temperament", it's "temporary". Stop and really think about this for a moment. How many times, since you have started dating have you thought: "This could be it! I think he is the "one"!"? Probably more than you'd really like to admit, out loud, or even just to yourself. More to the point, how many more times will you say that through-out your life, until (if your really lucky) your actually right?
She might has something there. Oh, and she made me promise that I told you all that after she wrote this that she ate half a sheet cake, without the frosting. And a diet coke.

Did the diet coke cancel out the calories in the cake? Your right I think she does have something there.|
