Excerpt

>> Friday, November 6, 2009

An excerpt of a larger personal essay I'm currently developing:

We typically speak of perfection in terms of being flawless or without error. Indeed, Merriam-Webster.com’s first definition of perfect is “being entirely without fault or defect”. Definition 1b is perhaps the better description to keep in mind while discussing finding the perfect girl. It reads, “Satisfying all requirements”. Another states “lacking in no essential detail”. Perhaps those two combined gives us the best definition of what ‘perfect’ is when considering a spouse. Perfect girl – one who meets all the needs that you have. A girl whom you love despite her flaws, because the flaws really don’t matter. It’s exactly who she is that makes her perfect to you.

Sounds like you found a girl?

In an exaggerated manner of speaking, I suppose. Whether or not she's aware she has been found is yet to be determined.

If you found the perfect girl for you I am happy for you Steve. If you haven't found her yet don't worry you will. Dan had to wait awhile until he found the perfect girl for him.
