It's based on software quality control in that the latest version is not considered a stable release and thus it is my responsibility to inform you that what you love is unstable and may crash and damage the operating system in the process.

Everything I love is unstable, what makes you think you're special?

I require the "I agree" to the EULA of pre-rease software from people (because out of many only two people really understand what happens when I blow up). Just because you say that does not mean I believe your word for it when people tell me things like "oh I understand" or "I'm different than others" when the vast majority clearly did not follow what they said (just like how people blindly click "I Agree" without reading the EULA and complain about something that was covered in it later on).

See what people fail to realize is that I will happily ditch you completely for video games (especially if that video game is StarCraft or DotA) because it's more fun than interpersonal interaction.

I despise the term "pefect" for what it's become in popular culture and now see why it is described as "perfection is nothing at all". Perfection is defined as the state of having no errors. I prefer the standards of "perfection" be defined by me and no one else as it provides the most control for the least amount of collateral damage. Being perfect to someone else's standards means absolutely nothing to me since in the past, it has changed in unfair ways to suit the person defining the standards and everyone (including myself) is guitly of it.

TL-DR: All love is unrequited except for extremely few people and it irritates me to see how many people fail to realize this.

Eh, to me being perfect requires flaws. No relationship (platonic or romantic) works without them. If a person you love doesn't drive you up the wall occasionally, then something is very wrong. Perfection, at best, is a high degree of compatibility.

As for popular culture, it deludes itself. It insists that a relationship is only "perfect" if it's a certain way, and by giving people unrealistic standards, standards that were never their own, popular culture dooms relationships with false promises. Love will never, ever be sugar and rainbows. It's selfish and greedy, and it can't be proven with flowers on an anniversary. Any seemingly selfless act of love is always at it's core selfish.

Though I wouldn't say all love is unrequited. I think most people love one another differently and two people who love one another may not require the same thing. So long as needs are met, it works. If needs are not met then the relationship has failed in it's purpose.

Perfection with flaws only applies when the identity property is employed:

Definition: Perfection is the state of not having flaws in any given function "f(x)"

Theorem: If f(x) = A person's personality, then the person in question is always in a state of perfection in terms of personality.

Proof: A person's personality is considered unique to a person when all individual values. Because this is unique to the person, only that person can express his or her personality resulting in the identity property A = A which is always true for all values.

Thus perfection is not always true in a person's life unless that person does not wish to move to a different state based on his or her wants. "You are perfect" is actually an incomplete statement as I can respond with the question "Perfect at what?" Who the person is may not be where that person desires to be leading to conflicting standards of perfection where Person A is perfect to Person B but not perfect to him/herself.

PS: When I said all love is unrequired, I was referring to people that love me (I don't love people back).

I hate to barge in on this HIGHLY intellectual discussion about perfection, love, and other lovely intangibles, but I seem to have misplaced my donuts. You haven't seen them, have you? No? Alrighty then.
