Theme Week - [GM]Susan Vol. 6Multiple Personality Disorder
It's funny... When you're out trying to find a suitable mate, you'd think people would tend to be attracted to someone with a similar personality.
That would make sense. Theoretically, if you have any intention of having an actual relationship with someone, you'd want that person to share similar opinions on important topics.
Nobody wants to be married for fifty years and then find out the bitch likes pineapple on her pizza.
So, the smart thing is to find someone exactly like you.
Does anyone actually do this? Of course not.
If people did the smart thing all the time, this blog wouldn't even exist.
Can you imagine?
Player made a GM call for a valid reason.
I responded politely and helped him solve his problem.
No, people will more often than not (read: always) do the dumbest thing possible. When we're looking for someone, we will always tend to end up with someone who is basically our complete opposite.
How does that make any sense?
I love me. I honestly love me.
Who the hell wouldn't, right?
You're awful damned quiet there, you know.
It only makes sense that I would be attracted to someone like me. If I love me, I should fall in love with someone like me.
Not necessarily with the same plumbing though.
That's kind of a separate choice.
An optional package, if you will.
See what I did there?
Unfortunately, it seems my years of working with the functionally retarded caught up with me and I came down with the stupids.
I decided that the person who was best suited for me was a woman who wasn't even remotely suited for me.
Think that one through for a minute.
Okay, I will grant you, much of the decision making process did not involve critical thinking.
Except that critical thinking that occurs within one's pants.
But still, I somehow managed to fall in love with someone who is my exact opposite.
She's a good person.
I'm a bad person.
She likes to read.
I know how to read.
She likes spending time with people.
I hate people.
She enjoys crafts.
I hate people.
I know I said that twice, but I REALLY hate people.
This is the thing I don't understand. It doesn't make any sense whatsoever for me to be attracted to someone so radically different from me. It creates so many problems and arguments because we have such drastically different perspectives on any given situation.
It REALLY doesn't make any sense because she's perfect for me.
As much it might seem strange, I couldn't think, I couldn't conceive of someone more perfect for me than Susan.
Well... Maybe Jessica Alba.
Sorry. Pants thinking again.
It just doesn't make any sense. You don't see shit like this in the animal kingdom.
You don't see herbivores hanging out with carnivores.
Okay... They hang out briefly, but I'm talking about a relationship in which you don't end up digesting the other person.
Call me a romantic.
If I were to look at it from a purely intellectual standpoint, Susan would be so wrong for me.
So how in the hell is it that she's so right for me?
I'm serious here. I'm not even trying to be funny.
If any of you can explain this shit to me go right ahead.
Seriously... Just post it in the comments section or something.
Or... If any of you happen to know Jessica Alba...
