The respectable way to meet a life partner is by dumb luck, by bumping into them randomly or being introduced to them from within your little pool.Fortunately, this stigma is diminishing with time, but that it’s there at all is a reflection of how illogical the socially accepted dating rulebook is.
(Sure, people get divorced, but you don’t think you will.
A recent study shows that 86% of young people assume their current or future marriage will be forever, and I doubt older people feel much differently.
No, when it comes to dating, society frowns upon thinking too much about it, instead opting for things like relying on fate, going with your gut, and hoping for the best.
If a business owner took society’s dating advice for her business, she’d probably fail, and if she succeeded, it would be partially due to good luck—and that’s how society wants us to approach dating.
So we’ll proceed under that assumption.) And when you choose a life partner, you’re choosing a lot of things, including your parenting partner and someone who will deeply influence your children, your eating companion for about 20,000 meals, your travel companion for about 100 vacations, your primary leisure time and retirement friend, your career therapist, and someone whose day you’ll hear about 18,000 times. many good, smart, otherwise-logical people end up choosing a life partnership that leaves them dissatisfied and unhappy?
