There can be only one

We tell ourselves that, anyway, when the truth of the matter might be more like this:

There are some, after all, who believe in this “destiny” and “soul mate” business. Which is fine, I suppose, as long as nobody believes that I’m their soul mate. I’m a rather practical (and cynical) sort of person so my view on the subject matter is that there are several people compatible with you, considering the billions of people who have lived on or are on this planet. The only problem may be that it may be difficult to impossible** to meet them — they’re living in an inconvenient place, the wrong age, haven’t been born yet, or are already dead.

**Depending on the case, you might need a time machine.

Out of those four possible Bad Outcomes, I can personally vouch for approximately two.
