This is often done to get the benefits of featuring queer relationship — namely, to gain support of the LGBTQ community and profit off their viewership — without having to worry about alienating viewers who would find such relationships objectionable. But while the wink-wink-nudge-nudge jokes about Sam Jared Padalecki and Dean Jensen Ackles worked more or less , that’s because the Winchesters are brothers, and therefore there was no real expectation of anything more.

Dean x Reader Words: In a world where soulmates have matching tattoos, the reader wishes she could find her soulmate, but he might be closer than she thinks. You sighed, resting your head on your palm. Your eyes were trained on two people across the bar, wide smiles on their faces as they talked. The matching tattoos on their necks were obvious, and the reason their smiles were so wide. Sighing, you looked back down at your drink, thinking on your tattoo. Most people thought the soulmate tattoos were brilliant, the perfect way to end up with the person you were supposed to love for the rest of your life.
And you had to admit, you agreed with both sides. But, you had a problem thinking that everything was laid out for you in life- who your soulmate was and where you would meet them. It was all confusing and complicated in your mind. You smiled, spinning your bottle on your hands.

Pinterest To a frustrated single person, life can often feel like this: And at first glance, research seems to back this up, suggesting that married people are on average happier than single people and much happier than divorced people. Dissatisfied single people should actually consider themselves in a neutral, fairly hopeful position, compared to what their situation could be. All the research on how vastly happiness varies between happy and unhappy marriages makes perfect sense, of course.
So how big a deal is it? Well, start by subtracting your age from So given that this is by far the most important thing in life to get right, how is it possible that so many good, smart, otherwise-logical people end up choosing a life partnership that leaves them dissatisfied and unhappy?

But good old society frowns upon that, and people are often still timid to say they met their spouse on a dating site.
