Yes. You! It just might happen that you meet someone you can't get out of your mind, a Wonderful One whose chemistry seems to mesh perfectly with yours. The mere thought of the person makes you grin with a happy secret between you and ... well, you. In other words, for the very first time in a long time, you're floored. And private time spent with this Candidate In Question only seems to make you more certain this relationship could very well be IT. And yet ... there are those early-morning hours that rumble you upright in your bed to begin the questioning.

-- Is this person in my corner, on my side, an ally? Is he FOR me?

-- Does he make my life easier, more fun, more interesting?

-- Does he add something to my life? Do we as a couple add up to more than two individuals? (It's that old synergy thing.)

-- Does this person have my welfare/benefit/interest in mind?

-- Do I like this person? Do I like his values, view of the world, the way he relates to people, his priorities?

-- Is this person grounded, solid, down-to-earth, realistic?

-- Am I proud to be with him?

-- Do we see the future the same way, with similar goals?
