“I am weird, you are weird. Everyone in this world is weird. One day two people come together in mutual weirdness and fall in love.” – Dr. Seuss
This month, we’re taking an intimate look at power couples — those enviable duos whose yin and yang are so on point that it’s almost irritating. If you haven’t quite met your match, this month, in particular, can be pretty gruesome, with constant bloody reminders of that vacant seat. (And more cheesy wedding hashtags than you can stand.)
Soulmates come in many forms — not just as significant others — but business partners, besties, and people who let you go in front of them in line at the grocery store when you are holding only one artichoke. Sometimes those matches are only in your life for a spell… maybe four years of college, or one time at summer camp. In that moment, they bring out the best in us and make us hopeful for the future. My theory is that true soulmates give you permission to be the version of yourself that you dream of finding in someone else. Basically, they help you unlock the achievement that is your best you.
This year I’d like to be a part of my own power couple . . . with everyone I sit next to. Whoever they are, in business and in friendship, I’d like to give them my best and also demand it back. I learned last year (thanks to DIME) that teamwork makes the most ridiculous of dreams work. Though the individuals featured in this issue are part of duos, you don’t have to have someone at your side to be an unstoppable force, as page 42 show us. If finding your yang has been a major priority lately, maybe it’s time to be your own better half.
