>>16678141 depends. In the world, there is one other human who you would get along with the most. Then, there's another human who you absolutely despise and get along with the worst. In between these two people is everyone else. There are plenty of potential partners who fall so close on the spectrum to "the one" that you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Most of us probably never even meet "the one", but most of us meet someone who is close enough to them on the spectrum that we are happy and satisfied with them as a partner.
TLDR: There is a "the one" but there are plenty of others who will make you pretty much as happy.
If there isn't more than one, then life would be shit. Because there are over 7 billion people on this planet, and if there is only one for you. Well your chances of ever even looking at them are pretty close to none.
and now he realized it was only a matter of chance that Tereza loved him and not his friend Z. Apart from her consummated love for Tomas, there were, in the realm of possibility, an infinite number of unconsummated loves for other men. We all reject out of hand the idea that the love of our life may be something light or weightless; we presume our love is what must be, that without it our life would no longer be the same; we feel that Beethoven himself, gloomy and awe-inspiring, is playing the Es muss sein! to our own great love. Tomas often thought of Tereza's remark about his friend Z. and came to the conclusion that the love story of his life exemplified not Es muss sein! (It must be so), but rather Es konnte auch anders sein (It could just as well be otherwise).
There's probably more than one person throughout your life that you will consider "the one." That's about the best answer you can get, unless you have any religion or spiritual beliefs you turn to. Because there being "the one" would take there being things fated to happen. There seems to be some weird grey area where people believe in the existence of "the one" while still saying they lost that person. Which should logically make them NOT the one. Otherwise they'd be together.
