“He completes me”

July 1, 2016

I’m reminded that you have to be very careful in thinking that another person can “complete” your life, or even that you will fall in love with only one person in your life. An abbreviated version of my own history looks a little like this, with a few names omitted or changed to protect identities:

“OMG, Ann is the best ever.”

“OMG, Jan is the best. It’s amazing how you can meet someone and immediately be in sync with them.”

“I’m going to spend the rest of my life with Lori.”

“Patrice is amazing.”

“OMG, I love J. I can see having children with her.”

“Pam looks just like Rebecca Romijn and wants to be with me, and I want to be with her.”

“OMG, Angie is amazing.”

“Oh crap, I’m in love with a married woman.”

“Sue is the best ever. I can’t imagine ever being with anyone else.”

I was reminded of this recently when I met another woman, the first woman I’ve met in a long time who makes me laugh. We talked about going out, but I’m too sick at the moment to do that. I’ve had several episodes where I’ve had to flee a grocery store early because I started to pass out, and I really don’t want to involve anyone else in that right now. But she made me think of this.
