Question: Do you believe in "the one"?
I think people are like puzzle pieces. There's a lot of people out there that fit with you, even if your patterns don't match. There are a lot of patterns out there that are like you, but the pieces don't fit (ever seen people who you think are MADE for each other, but don't work out?). Sometimes there are pieces that don't fit, but you gently wedge them in until they do. And then there's one person who matches your piece and your pattern.
I could make a marriage last with a lot of people - maybe not the one, but there are a lot of people that I could marry. People who have the same ideals, who have the same personalities, interests, etc. We COULD make it work. It might end up being the perfect marriage, but there might always be that little gap when the pieces don't fit perfectly together.
I don't know if Sean is the one. I don't know if he's my perfect puzzle piece match. But he matches my pattern, and we fit - whether it's fate or if we just wedged and warped each other, we'll never know. And frankly, I don't want to know. I like it the way it is
