thank you Ceoli!

This has been explained multiple times and people still keep questioning it.

"Unicorn" is NOT the same as the HBB herself. It's the IDEA of what the "couple" or "dyad" is SEEKING. It is a LABEL for a STEREOTYPE.

Stereotypes ARE somewhat based on reality, albeit a sweeping generalization of some aspect of reality. That is why it is POSSIBLE to find a real-life "unicorn". But it is just not PROBABLE because it's an idealization, and real people are not idealizations.
