Sadly, most people don't seem to understand that it's not about finding the right person, it's about becoming the right person. Why? Because even if you do find the "perfect woman," if you haven't been working to improve yourself, she'll just see another slob who doesn't stand a chance.

I am well aware that a relationship is a two-way street and have already stated several times that I am looking for a woman who will be able to form a relationship in which we grow together
. The word "perfect" is subjective - perfect for me, not for the world.
