  2. Joy, over the last couple of days, Iris and I have been talking a lot about friends and how they've been changing.

    One of themes that repeatedly came up was how many friends limit their expectations regarding their partners (or potentials partner) to their current world view (the view based on their experience) and how that view tends to appear comprehensive when in fact it's usually quite a small subset of the world.

    This affects expectations regarding the types of people they might meet or with whom they might establish relationships. It also affects how they relate other, many of them seeing relating as pulling the other person into their space.

    I have a couple of friends who've often wondered if there were anyone for them out there and who have recently placed themselves into situations that are completely new to them. A side effect of the completely different situation is a change (expansion) of world view AND a change (expansion) in the types of people encountered.

    It looks as though there have always been plenty of people with whom they might relate, the people have just existed outside their world view.

    So, I woke up this morning with some Venn diagrams in my head and took it from there.

  3. How about linking this to how we define what's important?
    - and why not make a "Mark and Iris' dating service" - a friend of yours would defently increase the posibility for a person I would find to be a good match!!! - is that inside or outside my view?
