I think it’s hard for writers to find their perfect match because no one will ever be the match they write about. They create. Expectations will never be met. Even the best candidates dont meet the qualifying standards bar. The person the friends, the parents, even the writer deem a suitable match can’t even compare to the person in the writers head. The thing about soul mates is they only exist on paper. God bless anyone who falls for a writer.
