There are 7.125 billion people on earth. If you’re looking for “the one”—as is your “one in a million” person, that gives you roughly seven thousand one hundred twenty-five people to choose from… and that’s if you prefer both sexes. So, divide that number by two and you’re given a little over 35,000 people to choose from.
That’s a lot, yet with these stats in your face, people are expect to choose only one person and spend the rest of their lives with them without at least wondering who else is out there? If this sounds crazy to you, you’re not alone. If these statistics fill you with confidence and reaffirms the choices you’ve made as correct, you’re also not alone.
Still, recognizing you’ve found the one person you want to spend your life with is a lot easier said than done. Then, what happens when the love goes awry or when someone better comes along? This might help.
How Do You Know You’ve Found The One?
A person should always have a list of prerequisites constantly open in their minds like an ongoing collaborative Google doc. It should list the attributes they wish to see in a person and a checklist of ways someone else should make you feel before committing to a relationship. At thesame time, that list cannot be too specific (i.e. black curly hair, one green eye and one blue one) because you’re setting yourself up for disappointment with such in-depth requirements.
