So, I watched the film: Paterson
It is about poetry, with a strong nod to William Carlos Williams.
While I was watching the movie, I was mostly not liking it.
Then about 98.5% through, there was a terrific scene. No spoiler alerts here.
Upon contemplation, I ended up thinking the movie was very good.
And I believe there is a take-away philosophical line:

You are not what you created; you are what you will create.

In the “say what you mean and mean what you say” department.

I just got a “Like”. Who doesn’t like a little affirmation? It’s a start.
So I headed over to her profile and started reading. Pretty well written.
But there are details that seem problematic. So I wrote her:

You know what I don't get about people? 
Almost everything. 
If your profile is accurate then: 
I'm not tall enough, rich enough, too spiritual and not a Democrat. 
My god, how could you ever love me? Don

Any wonder I haven’t found my new life-partner yet?

She wrote back:

There is a good reason why you are single. If you can’t respect
a woman and one that knows what she wants, you don’t deserve to 
have that person. 
You have the qualities.��

There are probably several reasons I am single. I’m not thinking lack of respect is one. I’m thinking I don’t know the meaning of a “Like”.
