A thought:

I need to find someone like me.

Clarification: Finding someone LIKE me does NOT mean I want to find someone like me so I can totally make out with them. I mean, I’m not even talking about girls, necessarily. I want to find someone who is “like” me so I can see what they’re doing with their life.

Someone who is like me would comprise of:

  • Someone who has crossed, or hasn’t crossed, the same boundaries I have, or haven’t. Substance-wise, relationship-wise, emotion-wise.
  • Tied to the first point, someone who is neutral in many respects. I don’t become super depressed, nor do I become super happy.
  • Someone who takes life easily. Someone who isn’t swayed by basically any events – simply goes through them.
  • Someone who’s been through the same family situation as I have. Constant moving, and large relationship differences between parents.
  • Someone who’s interested in the same things I am. Internet, hardware, BEMANI, writing, languages, my kinds of music, the whole shebang. You know, my LJ interests basically.
  • Someone who has some of the same talents as I do. Musically, artistically. They’d have the same viewpoint about their talents as I do.
  • Someone who strives to be social, although tends to be introverted. It’s not that they can’t thrive in a social environment, it’s that they often choose not to.
  • Someone who has the same thoughts as I do. Someone who’d find it interesting to meet someone like them. Someone existential, atheist, due to the same reasons I am.

    This is not because I want to be best buds with them. Indeed, I find a lot of my own traits reprehensible, and I’m not sure if we’d get along. I simply want to know if there IS someone out there like that. OKCupid sorta tries a bit to match people up with similar personalities, but it doesn’t really feel like the same sort of thing to me.

    1. If this fictional person shared exactly the same interests and talents it should be only a matter of time before you encounter them, knowingly or not.
      If you loosened the requirements on that….I can think of a few people who were very similar, but that was years ago and I haven’t been in contact with them. But in most respects I think you and those others are pretty much interchangeable. And you would probably have no trouble getting along.

    2. Here are your bullet points with my comments:
      # Someone who has crossed, or hasn’t crossed, the same boundaries I have, or haven’t. Substance-wise, relationship-wise, emotion-wise.
      (Not quite sure about this one)
      # Tied to the first point, someone who is neutral in many respects. I don’t become super depressed, nor do I become super happy.
      (Definitely)
      # Someone who takes life easily. Someone who isn’t swayed by basically any events – simply goes through them.
      (Definitely)
      # Someone who’s been through the same family situation as I have. Constant moving, and large relationship differences between parents.
      (Not the moving so much, but the other half)
      # Someone who’s interested in the same things I am. Internet, hardware, BEMANI, writing, languages, my kinds of music, the whole shebang. You know, my LJ interests basically.
      (I’m not much of a composer, and I’ve never played IIDX, but the rest of them)
      # Someone who has some of the same talents as I do. Musically, artistically. They’d have the same viewpoint about their talents as I do.
      (Dunno. Probably not)
      # Someone who strives to be social, although tends to be introverted. It’s not that they can’t thrive in a social environment, it’s that they often choose not to.
      (Yup)
      # Someone who has the same thoughts as I do. Someone who’d find it interesting to meet someone like them. Someone existential, atheist, due to the same reasons I am.
      (I guess I’d have to see)
      Yeah…
