I tried to make them understand that I need more substance, more accomplishments to match my own. That sharing similar interests is not the single most important thing to me, to finding someone. I don't think they comprehended what I was about. I made a devil's bargain - I'd accept this candidate if they'd ensure that future selections have a broader background. It does seem to me as is if there is little chance of this venture paying off, but at least I will have tried. To do nothing is to simply play the victim of fate, of chance, of life.
