this blog is 100% inspired by becky’s comment on brian’s posting (thanks guys!!)
i’ve never been one to believe in soulmates or the whole one-person-for-everybody gig in a romantic sense. like becky, i think your soulmate doesn’t necessarily have to be your lover…at least i hope that’s not the case, because i already met mine and i definitely don’t foresee a marriage – damn you, danny! i do, however, think that everybody has a soulgroup…any given person is compatible with a select group, say a dozen – give or take a lot – of potential mates.
i picture it like this: let’s say i go to the store to buy some new socks. i’m not compatible with all the socks in the store - i can immediately eliminate any sissy and girly socks, gross and unkempt socks, ugly (in my opinion) socks, and any socks that just don’t fit right – too tall, too short, bad teeth… that leaves me with my soulgroup of socks. i could choose any one of those socks and be fairly happy. maybe i’ll have some buyers’ remorse, but who doesn’t with all the sock options these days?
