Anatomically Perfect Soul Mates


You know those stories about the young couple who falls in love and then the guy gets shipped off to war, and then find each other 40 years later in some random third world country in some random city in some random restaurant. To me, that's always a sign that there are such things as soul-mates in this world that are ordained by the Creator. So, I'm curious about something. If these soul-mates are "perfect" for each other. And the Creator knew in advance that these two people were destined for each other, might they also be anatomically created to match? And if research showed this, couldn't we then determine whether or not we should marry Girl "X" or Guy "Y" based on this? Let's turn love into simplistic soul-mate science people.

it would be a lot easier. however, there are two things: 1) our members would have to have some unique shapes then and that would look awfully funny, 2) wouldnt the law of free will be violated with this? I guess you wouldnt have to be with this person but it seems like it would make the most sense since you fit together. I mean if you didnt it would be like jamming a square into a circle hole (sorry for the graphic language)

I request you edit your post to delete the last line. This ain't no burlesque house Sean.

Knew in advance, or predestined in advance? (Sorry, instinctive question whenever something resembling a predestination question comes up)

The thing is, your last statement isn't that far-fetched given what some dating services advertise. "We'll match you on 35,000 compatibility variables." Is "We'll match you based on an analysis of your DNA by our human genome experts" that far removed? And if so, is that good? Personally I believe trying to use science to solve emotional problems is inherently wrong-headed. (This was one of the less-talked-about themes of one of my favorite films, "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind")

Segue, Ok, for those of you who saw Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, "How far into the movie did you guess the ending?" My wife and I both guessed within the first 6 minutes of the film. It kind of ruined it for us.

It took me a little longer. Probably about 20-25 minutes. As you can tell, though, I didn't really care.

Who are these people that met, then went to war, then met in a third world country in a random restaurant? I'm not sure I've heard a lot of those stories.

Honestly, I don't really believe there is ONE person we are meant to be with. I think there's probably multiple people we could be with. I think there are a lot of factors that play into it and when the time is right, and you're ready to find someone, you do.

If I moved to Ottawa next week, I'm sure I'd eventually find someone. If I moved to Kansas City next week, I'm sure I'd find someone there too. If my fifth grade girlfriend hadn't moved away to California, maybe I would have married her.

If I didn't guess Eternal Sunshine's ending till the end, does that mean I lose?

In my high school health class, the teacher (a woman obsessed with putting condoms on her finger) shared with us some statistic about how most women don't, shall we say "experience the fullness of joy" in their relations with their partners. Armed with such knowledge, I did what any red blooded Christian lad would do: pray for God to grant me a wife who would be a perfect anatomical fit, for the edification of us both, of course.

Say what you want about soul mates, my prayer was answered.
