On Finding "The One"


We then are obligated to live up to the lies we told each other about who we are. We are then forced to be better people than we actually are because its expected of us by each other. And you can, in a long term relationship, really make your “lie self” come true. If you’re smart, and if you demand it of them, and you’re willing to give it to them. You have to be willing to not see him chewing with his mouth open if you want to be around for his better qualities, you know, and buy into the “lie” version of him that never does that, right? And they will hopefully do the same for you. That’s the only way you become “the one,” because someone is willing to pretend you are.
