    I think a lot of stupid people have soul mates. They make kids and those dumb kids meet their soul mates and they make kids etc..

    Smart people know its just the luck/law of averages of having someone around who is fuckable and who will put up with your crap long enough to beget kids and…well thats just not very romantic...not very motivating.

    So the smart ones tend not to have as many kids and the dumb ones go forth and multiple (or at least add). And NASCAR flourishs because dumb people like to watch cars drive around in circles real fast.

    And thats why we (the U.S.) voted in George Bush Jr.

    ...prolly Obama too (because when we see he hasn't done much of anything except expand on George Ws policy you kind of remember his resume was pretty shity)

    And I? I am just reading Proust between jack off sessions waiting for the world dumbshit saturation point to hits it peak to the point where the power grid fails and the lights go out and we all move back to the caves.

    I guess I don't know what people mean when they use the term "soulmate".

    Have you ever met a person that nearly completely understood you, that you could relate to on several different levels but at the same time were completely invigorated by?

    That might fit the definition... if the interest is mutual and it somehow never fades. Then I suppose I'd believe in it. Will the interest never fade, however? I have no idea.

    I believe in soulmates - as in several people you are destined to hook up with and have meaningful encounters with. It doesn't have to be romantically, sometimes you can experience pure love in close friendships too. Someone you feel like you're deeply connected to even if you don't know them very well (yet). Michael Newton writes about groups of souls who choose to incarnate together, to share a common learning experience. ("Journey of souls", "Destiny of souls")

    I'm sure there's more than one soulmate for every person
    I have no sense of humour.

    I'd say the fact that there are ~7 billion people on earth means you'd have to be pretty bold to believe the idea that only one person on the entire face of the planet is the right one for you.

    There are a lot of people out there that are similar enough to any given person to have a successful relationship and feel like "soulmates" who were "meant for each other."

    The idea that there's one exact person that's predestined to be your mate and no one else will work is stupid, though. Considering that you only meet about .0000000000001% of the world's population in your life, virtually no one would ever find the right match, if this were the case.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
