Perception and reality. Brains in vats, or how do we meet anyone that we like.
I have met people. I have met people I like. In fact, I like most people I meet. People who know me, that is to say, people who have been exposed to me for a protracted period of time long enough to accept or simply ignore my flaws, tend to like me.
Like. Liking. I used to think that I really enjoyed people similar to me. Individuals that I had lots in common with. As I got older, I considered that I may be attracted to people that were simply my polar opposite. But honestly, I think I like people that like me. This can lead to some odd chicken vs egg timing issues. I guess I just need to play the numbers, and stop thinking about it. I’m going for a run.
