Is There Such a Thing as “The One”?
Humans have been trying to wrap our heads around love since our ancestors first started batting eyelashes at one another eons ago. As soon as you start to unpack love as a concept, an avalanche of questions starts to rumble. What is lovereallyall about? How do we find it? How do we keep it? Is there really such a thing as “the one”?
Let’s examine the latter from a few different angles.
Of Course There’s a “One”!
The romantic side in all of us says, “Yes! There is such a thing as the one!” which is a beautiful sentiment, especially if you’ve found the one for you. Even more so if you’re shopping for engagement rings and you’re planning the rest of your lives together!
The notion that there is one perfect match for everyone is as old as time, and the basis of many a fairy-tale. It’s an indescribable feeling, and the reason you hear, “you just know it when you feel it." It just… works. “The One” puts all your exes to shame and you can’t imagine spending your life with anyone else. You like it, and now it’s time to put a ring on it.
Plus isn’t thinking you’ve found the one the same thing as actually finding it, anyway?
There’s No “One”, But…
On the other hand, it may be more realistic to accept that maybe “the one” doesn’t actually exist. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing! (Put the tissues away). Love is the earned reward for putting in a lifetime’s effort with one other person. It is a simple fact that for better or worse, real life is not like the movies.
Your experiences with love may not be as effortless as Hollywood, and the one you’re with probably isn’t perfect (leaving the toilet seat up, anyone?) but love always requires a bit of patience at one point or another. Even Ross and Rachel had their ups and downs!
Hundreds of “The One” Possibilities
Not having a single “the one” can be a freeing concept. Instead of having one person that we are destined to be with, we live in a world where there are hundreds, maybe even thousands, of people that can make us happy and be the person we build a future with.
By the same token, this means there is no such thing as the one that got away. So, while we’re all about current love blossoming, if you’ve had your heart broken before, you can rest easy in the knowledge that your ex is not your only one. You may find yourself cooking an engagement chicken for your next partner soon enough.
At the end of the day, we’ll simply never know what the stars have in store for us. Maybe there is one perfect person for all of us, after all. You might have already found yours, and are just waiting for them to hurry up and pop a certain question.
Then again, maybe we all should accept that “the one” is someone we choose, not someone we have chosen for us by fate or some higher power. It might not always be perfect, but with a little patience and some TLC, you can be picking out your dream engagement ring with your very own “the one”.
