You can have more than one soulmate. You can be your own soulmate.
Being 16 is very hard. So can being 40.
One should not try to cope with being 40 by dressing like one is 16.
Try new foods.
Dont try drugs, new or old.
Stand up for anyone older than you on the bus. Same for pregnant women. Same for anyone who just LOOKS like they need to sit down. and do it with good grace.
open doors for everyone.
Own a pet. care for it. Do not, however, substitute it for a child/relationship/life.
No one wants to see /hears about your pet's cute quirks. Same goes for your kids. and your sex life.**
Great friends will pretend they DO want to hear about the above**. For a while.
You do not have to make your own pasta to have a good life.
