The fact that most people are not functioning on a high level of consciousness brings me to this point that you made (Thrasymachus) in your feedback/response to my post. First, you are right about finding a partner that can meet you as well as function at that same maybe even on a higher level or close to that level of consciousness. Which makes it difficult for deep thinkers or high-level thinkers to find an appropriate mate. To your credit (vic2ria) when partnerships (relationships) end in divorce/split or some people refer to it as taking a break, I agree it can lead to sadness, depression, or even despair. That is why I encourage everyone to take the time to show their new partner the qualities that are necessary to build a strong union and what you are really about before you lock yourself in the relationship. Get to know him/her through courtship learning about his/her behaviors and what they may mean as well as asking questions that can lead to challenging their critical thinking abilities. If someone is having problems being able to stay focused during a conversation, then question that. Remember, people are struggling with mild mental health conditions, and you will not know that until after you grow very fond of that person because they are so desperate that they can mask their behavior during the time with you or just chatting with you. Never text all the time because at some point it is better to talk by phone call to hear that person’s voice and listen to their speech patterns. If you listen well enough, you can pick up on the little things that will give him or her away.
