Find Your Perfect Match

Updated on October 4, 2011

Your Match is out there, somewhere

Life tends to be sufficiently difficult without finding yourself stuck with an incompatible match. Looking online for what you're looking for has become a popular pastime for many folks who would otherwise order from a catalog or hang out at a local establishment. Match shopping simply isn't what is used to me. Don't give up, but consider changing your strategy somewhat.

We're here to help. Our research reveals optimal match possibilities to 3 standard deviations. Feel free to try out more than one of our suggestions: there's no shame in taking a risk now and then. We want you to feel fulfilled and satisfied, but we understand that identifying a perfect match may be an imperfect science. Despite the numerous choices offered by Internet match providers, you still need to take the first step. Your match will not find you - step up and take the plunge!

50 Plain White Cover Wooden Matches Box Matches

Sometimes we want to kick back with a friend we can depend on. We crave familiarity, reliability, and acceptance in a world jam packed with unfamiliarity, unreliability, and nonacceptance. A generic pack of plain boring wooden matches may not seem like the formula to ignite your soul, but trust us: you can start a fire with these babies.

The box is a safe dependable cardboard carrier than can be sacrificed for tinder should an emergency arise. These matches may not be perfect, but we can all get along.

Metal Match, Strike It Model, Matchless Firestarter, Magnesium Firestarter

Life is sufficiently complicated without layering on supplemental difficulties. Sometimes an intentional search for what you really want simply becomes frustrating. Overtly shopping for matches can wear you down to the point that you wonder if you will ever find your perfect match.

This thing doesn't even look like a match. You might get it home before you realize what it actually means to you. A matchless firestarter takes time to get used to. Does it have a place in your life? Give it time.

adidas Speedcell 2011 Official Match Ball (Women's Fifa World Cup)

Certainly, a soccer game is hardly a fulfilling place to look for a match. Everyone is blasting on their vuvuzela and eating nachos: it's difficult to get anything started in the match department. Adidas wants to help. Oddly enough, a match can often be found at a Women's World Cup soccer game because they are contractually obligated to play with adidas Speedcell 2011 Official Match soccer balls.

You'd better order a few of these: they tend to get kicked around.

The Match: The Day The Game Of Golf Changed Forever Each

It's OK to talk about it. Searching for what you consider to be your perfect match may inspire you to tell others about your quest and your fulfillment. You may linger over nachos at Applebee's, regaling your close friends with tales of your successes and failures. You may even publish a blog.

Or, you might be moved to write an entire book. Some folks have an extremely high opinion of their matches. Their stories warrant hundreds of pages of closely set type organized into sentences, paragraphs, and chapters. Their matches need to be shouted from the digital rooftops.We haven't read it, yet, but it must be good because it's about golf and it was written a long time ago.


Continue searching. Trawl the Internet for your perfect match. It's out there, somewhere. Have your credit card at the ready. Never give up. Never, ever give up.
