This is what we’re worth. This is undeniable. I couldn’t care less if you are my intellectual equal. In fact, I find your mind so much richer than mine. But ultimately, that’s not what makes love work. What is rare, and what I care for, is that we are cognitively compatible. We experience the world around us alike. So can it be that we understand what the other goes through even though our processing mechanisms work differently. It’s what makes this connection unique. It’s what causes this state of undying fascination between us. And, for what it’s worth, I’m guessing that would give us a head start if we’d ever dare try any life made for another. If anything it’s the kind of fortune I’d never dare squander. You’re such a rare find. Letting you slip through my fingers would be a crime against all the kinds of desire.
