I was reading a story about mates, a GFY mate story (and I enjoy a good GFY story – mate or not) and I was thinking about the concept. I wish mates existed in real life. I’ve been married, he was not my mate. (Obviously, we’re not together now and I’m not dying of a broken heart.) But life would be easier in some ways if there were mates.
Once you found yours, you would know that’s it. No more worrying, no more looking. They won’t cheat on you, they’ll love you forever, they’ll die to protect you (and vice versa of course), and you’ll truly live happily ever after. Now granted with 6 billion people on the planet maybe finding your mate will be difficult and maybe you’ll never find your mate, so I suppose that would suck but hey, you could still date and get married if you want, just know its likely going to end in divorce, just like real life. (Ohhh, who’s cynical?)
So would you like a mate? Do you think you’ve found yours? Or does it seem too creepy to be ruled purely by biological need and not your brain?
