You (Don’t) Complete Me…and That’s OK!

Any movie fan or anyone with ears recognises the line ‘You complete me’, those heart-warming words uttered at the end of the movie Jerry Maguire that prompted a collective ‘awwww’ from cinema audiences across the world. They are, however, bollox. Ok, I overstated that for attention (gotcha!). But it’s a sentiment with which I’m definitely […]
