I was JUST thinking the same thing!
A common married-person joke is to say “Oh look! He/she said exactly what I was thinking. We’re well and truly married. Sigh”.
That is one joke where the humor eludes me. What is so pitiful about your spouse thinking EXACTLY the same thing that you are?
I remember most social interactions since I was a teenager and the near-constant, overwhelming urge to mortally wound the person in front of me because he/she just wasn’t “getting” half the things I was saying. Now that could be because I was smarter or dumber but I’ll go with the former (’cause this is MY blog).
Friends are chosen because they share certain interests. Of them, best friends seem to “get” you better than the others because they are mentally in tune with your thoughts.
I took it one step further and married my best friend and it is a RELIEF to me when she says exactly what’s on my mind. Or we blurt the same joke/pun simultaneously. Fail to see how that’s boring.
It’s reassuring to have someone on the same wavelength as you. Even better if it is a person you have chosen to spend the rest of your life with.
