When you meet your other half, even if you are entire as an indivual, there is a sense that you still add up to one, as if 1 +1 somehow equalled 1. Perhaps meeting someone is kind meeting sum-one.

Meeting someone new is a divine pleasure. Regardless of how things turn out, I love the dance that begins. The most important idea is to be able to get a true feeling for who they are over a few weeks and months without ever forming an opinion of them. You let them develop as a old polaroid photograph, nice and slow. Perhaps they are a life long friend, a lovable rouge or a person too damaged to give in an emotionally warm and nurturing way. So, my new friend, all I can say is I am glad we met.

Meeting someone gives that me-ting, that tingle of joy. I love it. I love getting together with old friends and new, chatting and passing the time in these sweet bonds of friendship.

Meeting friends online was a step up from conversations with the mirror but not much. Every group self selected to become a crazy echo chamber. There was no loyalty, no real life connection, yet everyone craved it like a drug. If you didn't have insane amounts of "likes" who were you anyway?
