While I was out for appetizers and drinks with some folks from work, the question that those of us who are single get popped up:
“Who is the perfect person for you?”
This is a difficult question to answer for numerous reasons.
First, define perfect. If I am still single, it might be because there is no perfect and I am unwilling to compromise (at this point).
Without the cynicism, I know one quality would be someone with a sense of astonishment for life. I don’t want to be with someone who goes through their days with a ho-hum, kind of bored, just grinding through life attitude.
That’s just one quality. Of course, then there are the physical attributes. Factor in all these high expectations, and you see why I am single after all of these years.
Maybe next time I am asked this question I’ll say, “I want someone as good as me.”
