Two Wholes Equal ... Two?

Tomorrow I head out to San Antonio. Then on Tuesday I go to Austin to help Matt move here. I have to admit that I am SO nervous about being part of a couple. For those of you that have followed Matt and I's story from the beginning know that we have been involved in a long distance relationship for about 7 months. We haven't spent a whole lot of time together but I love him nonetheless.
All this talk of Matt coming here made me think. Why is it that people say their significant other is their other half? I don't get that. I mean I think I'm whole on my own so I'm not a half of anything. So the way I see it I'm part of a two. Because I'm a whole and so is Matt. We're two wholes.
Yeah, maybe I didn't make any sense. Well life is changing and I'm so excited.

I promise one of these days you will understand what that means!! For example, when Israel took such good care of me in the hospital, he literally was my eyes, ears and even my mind when I wasn't able to be myself! He was my other half!!

Good luck on your trip!! I can't wait to hang out with you AND MEET Matt!!!

I agree with you,Patty. It is two wholes that equal one. The "you complete me" thing is a lovely sentiment, but it isn't true, in my opinion. For us, the relationship is strengthened because we are both independent wholes.

Thanks for your insight ladies.

I am so happy you found love and a great person to be with. I think that once you find that person they are a big part of your life. They are there no matter what a half or a whole they are there.
