You don't need one true soul mate to 'complete' you
Sloss says the crushing fear of being alone has left many people trying to jam the “wrong jigsaw piece” into their own jigsaws, enslaved by the myth that only their one true love can complete the picture.

He firmly believes that 80 per cent of relationships start because people have not learned how to love themselves, “… so you employed someone else to do it”.

“We have romanticised the idea of romance and it is cancerous. People are more in love with the idea of love than the person they are with,” he says.

Song of Songs
“But what happens if I can learn to measure love’s effect, and this love, which feels so real, doesn’t register?”

“Reading this, I can’t help but think of those late-night phone calls, the easy seesaw of our conversation, our shared laughter. Also, the ways our bodies move together like practiced dancers, improvising to the same song. We, too, find shared rhythms easily.”

“Does recording our sex occur to me? Of course it does. My urge is to clamp a hand over the mouth of that thought, much as, for many years, I used to clamp my hand over my own mouth at orgasm to stifle the sound. If I can hardly bear my own autoerotic sounds, how will it feel to hear those made in the company of my lover? Consider the mild discomfort of hearing a recording of your voice on, say, a voicemail. Multiply that discomfort infinitely. My lover has told me that I am noisy at orgasm (which she relishes), and though I suspect she is right, I have never heard myself. I am happy for this deafness. Some things I don’t want to notice, to reflect on, to consider.”

“With her, more so than with any lover before, I follow my pleasure without fear of shame.”

“My lover nods. This is news to only one of us.

“I guess it’s not out of character,” I say.

She shakes her head and smiles.

When she turns back to her reading, I sneak a look at her while feigning interest in my work. I want to memorize this moment—sunlight dappling the floor, her long legs crossed at the ankle, the small rasp as she turns the page of her book—in which I feel utterly at ease, able to share my delight in multiple things with her: my strange study of our lovemaking, the recorded fact of it, her total acceptance and actual pleasure in this obscure corner of reflection. If there is a test, it feels like we have passed it. This moment, alone, is different. It is full of things I had not known before.”

Nausicaa meets Teto the fox-squirrel
Teto the fox-squirrel feels cornered, trapped, attacked, so he lashes out in self-defense. But Nausicaa persists with love and kindness, suffering through the initial pain until Teto comes to understand that she is not intending to be a threat to him. After that, he “apologizes” by licking the wound he himself inflicted on her, and from then on, they are allies.

Paul Bloom on Cruelty – Econlib
I think that's one of the biggest mistakes we make about morality. I think that the reality is that fully appreciating someone's humanity opens up so many positive things--you can't be human without it; you can't have a decent relationship. It's the foundation of love, and friendship. But, it carries with it so many terrible risks. Really loving somebody, really knowing somebody opens up the possibility for love; but it also opens up the possibility for hatred.

we need to respect the fact that often we had no bad intentions and we will be right; and yet we can appreciate that our own small acts when accumulated makes people's lives miserable. And so we should stop these small acts.

The first point is that the robots are probably sentient. I mean, it's impossible to know. It's the standard, you know, undergraduate dormitory argument at 2 in the morning, how can I know you're conscious? How can you know that I'm conscious? But, these robots are of such sophistication, complexity, it beggars belief that they don't have feelings.
