The idea that every person has a "soul mate" who they must find is rooted in two relationship lies. Which are:
1. I need this person to be complete.
2. If this person needs me, I'll be complete.

"It is only when we no longer compulsively need someone that we can have a real relationship with them."
- Anthony Storr, in Ib.
