Plato once said that humans were created with two of each of everything: four arms, four legs, four eyes, two hearts, and so on. Zeus feared their power, so he split the humans into two halves, condemning them to search for their other halves for eternity. But what happens when we've found our other half? How do you know if you've found "the one?"
