(Warning! This post may be deemed melancholy. But it's honest.)

Here's a question I've been pondering...

Do all people settle in terms of their relationships? Do we all give up the hope of someone 100% perfect that we may or may not find in favor of someone who is 90% perfect? And do we even believe that there is one person out there who is 100% perfect for us? If yes, then who's to say that your 100% perfect someone hasn't already settled for someone 90% perfect for them?

And is it really settling if the person is 90% perfect for you? Isn't that 10% just the normal effort that people have to put into relationships? Isn't that 10% the person's quirk? The thing that makes them well, them? Wasn't it part of the initial attraction? Have they changed? Or have you?

I suppose the real question is whether or not you can be happy and satisfied with the 90% or if the 10% will always be a constant thought or topic of arguments, the proverbial "thorn in the side".
