media naranja
(noun) A Spanish idiom, a media naranja is defined as your soulmate. Literally translated to “half of an orange,” your media naranja has connotations of being your better half and the person, who completes or complements you. Tender and sweet, it is speculated that this term holds its origins in Greek mythology. According to Aristophanes’ speech from Plato’sSymposium, human beings were once composed of three genders (androgynous, male, and female). Due to our insensitivity and disobedience to the gods, we were split in two, leading us to roam the Earth endlessly and tragically searching for our beloved other half, hence your other half of the orange.
