Couple-hunting in Unicornia
Inspired by the thread 'What's in it for a unicorn', I think I can't help but to offer a description of what's it like to go couple-hunting from the perspective of a self-confessed unicorn.
Ever since I read Ms. Deborah Anapol, I became convinced what I really needed was a couple. She made it clear that waiting for your one-and-only to start the perfect polysituation with might leave you waiting for the rest of your life. So all the single-ladies out there, create a profile on OkCupid and start looking for your one-and-only couple.
So what do you know? Within a few minutes of signing in, there you are, looking up the profile of the cutest girl ever, who's looking for someone to get to know both her and her boyfriend. And she's IMing you!
So as it is, we're definitely on the path to friendship, and have two dates planned in March. I'm enthusiastic, and try not to get my hopes too far up.

"In dealing with resentments, we set them on paper - list people, institutions and principles with whom you are angry. Ask yourself why you are angry."
