help meet is ezer neged in Hebrew, meaning both complementary and counterpart to husband.

It is very true that man should Not be alone since it is very depressing when you have no one to share your life with. But with so many women that are Not as nice like they were years ago just makes it very hard for us Good single men trying to meet a Good woman to settle down with to have a family.

I think God was talking about that men have struggles in life, n that if they get that one women then they fully complete their life. One can help another and love another

i often wonder if God meant it 's ok for woman to be alone? there 's more women than men on the planet. so did He mean it 's ok for woman to be alone, but for man? and Did He mean for men therefore to have more than one woman? being that there are so many. No woman is left a virgin. Most likely all of them has been hurt by a man. what about the woman 's lonliness..? a thing not nurtured dies. and that 's what i feel like except i go cheat with a man for self gratifications, a man that is not my own. so wth? does anyone know what they 're talking about? but God.

Gen. 2 18 'It 's not good for man to be alone. ' As Adam was looking to long at a sheep, God realized something. Each beast has complimentary creation to relate with and to. Yet Adam 's got nobody. So God created a women. Now Adam has one to take care of and have an entirely new purpose drawing him away from self obsession. Thank you God.

It is very true that God said man should not be alone, then why can't i meet a good woman to share my life with?

I always thought verse 18 said help mate till i considered it carefully. Help-meet what does that truly mean?
