You mean Old, Ugly and Fat...er Jovial are not "hot" this year?!...and I have been working so hard at acquiring that look. Perhaps it's not too late to get those stubble implants I have been dreaming of and that gold tooth.. I've heard that's a deal maker. Maybe I just need to get in touch with my feminine side. I don't know how much stock I put into the "ideal mate" thing since I'm pretty sure the idea changes as we change. There may always be that symptom of pettiness or selfishness that persists in how we expect our mate to act or what we expect as interaction, but as far as idealism goes, I think that is malleable. The only time we notice a conflict between the ideal and real is when we are looking on a superficial level. Perhaps the truth is in the details, but I can't help but think if we spent more time observing mates, or potential mates with a more open, honest and less agenda oriented approach we might find that any ideal is a ridiculous limitation in comparison to that person. Look to the base of any ideal and you'll find a matter of simple stimulus. Cause and effect, going beyond that is maturity and the beginning of understanding..not that I'm preaching mind you, it's just been my own experience, feel free to disregard any or all of my words. I think it's okay to have an "ideal" as long as we realize that such a thing does not exist except as a shallow reflection of our psyche....heh, I'm off to K-Mart now to get a pair of Ruggedly Harsh Jeans and Wild Silent type sneakers. ;)


Carl Jung said every person has an image in their mind of their ideal mate, he called them animus and anima (for man and woman). Every person compares their mates against their animus or anima, and no mere human could ever come close to our idealized image.
