Potential for Change Requires Fallibility

If you are a jerk, then you can emphasize your ability to change much better than if you start off by being real nice.

See, you don’t want to date the Pope, because there’s no place for the Pope to go, except Heaven. Where’s the aesthetic value of the relationship if you are with someone who’s infallible, and therefore perfect?

People need to have projects to do, and there’s no project that makes a relationship more interesting than that of improving your partner. And for that, the more imperfect the partner, the better.

Of course, one can go too far with one’s imperfection, so there’s much to be said for walking the fine line. And it shall be said another day.
