Just this morning I went to take my daughter to her playgroup, I put my cd into the player and this song "you're one in a million" I haven't heard for quite some time, maybe 2-3 years. So it said, 'you're one in a million, once in a lifetime . . . " Do you believe that is possible? Is one in a million meaning you have find the last one. No more searching. Or, you might find this one in a million but you don't have to have it and still look for the last one to be committed to? Is love that simple or complicated? Can we really find the right one for us? the one in a million? What does it mean that we find the right one? Does it mean that we can live happily ever after, like cinderella? I don't think so for us in the real life.

A chapter of the little prince can describe my thought absolutely. The fox said to the little prince:" To me, you are still nothing more than a little boy who is just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need of you. And you, on your part, have no need of me. To you, I am nothing more than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you,I shall be unique in all the world.." "One only understands the things that one tames" "And now here is my secret, a very simple secret:It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye" "It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important." "But you must not forget it. you become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed. You are responsible for your rose." I wanna say that it is the love we share with each other that makes ourselves so unique. I am one in a million. I believe that deeply. I have "tame" my friends,and they "tame" me. We understand each other, trust each other and stand by each other. That's enough.

Hi Naomij. It's a good philosophy. I believe that's true what you're telling me about the fox but I don't think it has to do with the one in a million I'm talking about. I'm talking about one in a million between lovers. But thanks anyway.

I do not take one in a million literally. But then what that line means for me is that when we found someone whom we consider the best one for us then we can say that we found "one in a million." That further means we are giving the highest form of adjective and that is in the superlative form of saying one in a million. That is my idea of the song. It is a figure of speech, hyperbole if not mistaken. Exaggeration indeed.

hhhmmmmmm . . . . If I was still in my early 20s, I might like the idea of one in a million. But since I learn lots of things then, I would also think that it's hyperbole. My version is that this song is written when you're too happy to find someone that you think you really love that could be your last and you should end your search. But no guarantee how long it'll last because that's only what you feel in the beginning of your relationship. . . .

One in a million, yes of course our mate is one of a million, may be billion, or trillion. But it is not that complicated. Let's now think about ordinary daily routine, everything is simple but actually complicated. In the end, it's only the way of our mind to describe it. I think love is simple, because I've met my special one only from accidentally moment, so simple because i even don't imagine that she'll be my wife in the future. It is doesn't matter how, when, or where i met her, because I'm happy with my life, and i never will or want to find another. She's of course one in a million woman in the world, but fate has make it easy for me
