Soul Mate

One of the cruelest lies of all time is the notion of soul mate: that there is only one person on earth who would make you a suitable partner. Think how silly that is! In a lifetime you might meet only 10,000 people. What are your odds of even seeing your soul mate in a world of 7.381 billion? You have only met perhaps 0.1% of the potential partners in your metropolitan area. How can you possibly claim there is no one suitable in that other 99.9% of the people when you have never even talked to them? When a partner dumps you, all that proves is they were not a suitable long-term partner. It means nothing about the availability of better partners.
