Unicorn Hunters

To obtain the unobtainable.
To search for that which does not exist.
These are the actions of what I call a Unicorn Hunter.

There are many Unicorn Hunters out there.
People waiting for the right time to have children; looking for the perfect job; seeking the greatest high: playing to win the lottery. (surprisingly the lottery seems to be the most attainable of the list there)

Perhaps the most common is searching for the perfect partner, a soul mate, be they man or woman.
There is no such thing.
There are people with whom you are compatible and those with whom you are not.
Simple as that.

I think online dating has turned so many people into Unicorn Hunters.
Always looking for the next best thing because they may be the “one,”
The unicorn that will be magical and completely change them and their whole life.

I don’t think it works like that.

Would be nice if it did but always being on the hunt and never being satisfied seems tiring and fruitless. They pass up people with whom they are compatible because maybe that person had one annoying habit and they move on to the next.
Always moving on to the next.

If you find that you are always searching for the perfect mate, or greatest adventure or best place on Earth, you may be a Unicorn Hunter.
Perhaps it is time to stop and look at exactly why you want a unicorn and deal with that instead, and not obtaining a unicorn.
