I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together. Lisa Kleypas
About This Quote

When Kurt Cobain died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, his wife, Courtney Love, was devastated. She had been a huge fan of Kurt Cobain and was devastated by the suicide. Courtney became a very famous rock star in her own right, with her own band. After years of dating other musicians and struggling with addiction, she married the lead singer of Nirvana, who she had met when he was just a teenager.

The idea of “soul mates” is very romantic, but this quote shows that it is not as ideal as it may seem. Love at first sight is certainly not something that exists. A relationship can develop over time, but there are many obstacles that develop into the relationship as well.

These obstacles often include trust and compatibility. Sometimes you need to give your heart and soul to someone before you can even begin building a relationship.
