    A device that people use to justify an emotional whim.

    Some wake up 20 years later and realise it was bullshhit, others carry it until death.

    The future has not been written. There is no fate but what we make for ourselves.

    I don't think you meet The One or are destined to be with them but I do believe that some people are better suited for someone than others and these people will become The One but I don't buy into the destiny idea. I think you make them that one person for you, it doesn't just happen, sometimes it never will

    I would hope so. It deserves a prominent place in the hall of the 'Greatest Human Time-wasting Inventions'.

    That's a pretty good explanation, but just imagine I meet the wrong person and I make them the one for me, but then there's someone out there who's better suited to me and I'm never gonna meet them

    Yeah but tbh if they're not right then you'll struggle to idealise them that much more in order to over attach yourself? A bit of a crude explanation but I guess you've just got to go with your gut

    No, clearly not, as your chance of locating him/her would be somewhat remote. I do believe in good and bad choices however.

    I'm definitely a believer in 'the one'. However, only fate can decide my destiny.

    I believe I have. I'm just waiting for the 'confirmation' (i.e. time) so to speak

    That's just the unavoidable consequence of living in a world that has more people in it than you'll ever have the time to meet.

    I don't think your hypothetical scenario works with the 'wrong' person -- if you weren't compatible, then you'd struggle to form a long-term relationship with them, anyway. There's no point worrying about the possibility that there's somebody, somewhere with whom you're even more compatible than somebody you know now.

    No. But yes in terms of being able to find someone you want to be with and are content with.

    Believe in fate all you want, it was clearly my destiny to laugh at you while you fail relationship after relationship because you leave the moment things start.
