$1 million can be blown instantly. A soulmate can give you lasting memories and joy far beyond that.

I really don't want to live alone anyway. It seems so scary facing the world and responsibilities, even completely paid for, alone. Even if I had servants doing everything, I'd still need someone to be close to all the time.
How can you ever feel happy knowing that your "love" what you base your relationship on is a genie who *granted* you this person? Do you really believe that human relationships (all kinds) are as simple and platonic as that? That you can just manipulate them through some genie? A fake soulmate granted to you for memories that were never real, and why? How is this any good to you? Is this just your own loneliness talking or do you just feel that way?

I'd take the lifelong mate. I value having a relationship and the feelings associated with that more than material things.

Hang on for tomorrow, because tomorrow is another day, and it may not be the best, but at least it's not today.

The working world causes far more stress and anxiety for me than worrying about romance , so I would choose the money without hesitation. It's not even about having material things, having to deal with a miserable job while having severe anxiety just makes it nearly impossible for me to enjoy anything else in life anyway. Maybe when I was a kid, and was still under the illusion that love is all you need, I would have chosen a mate. But if a mate was granted to you, it wouldn't really feel authentic anyway, nor would having a mate guarantee happiness.

I didn't read it as being a "fake" relationship - just that you would meet your best match among the millions of people out there.
