In the short story “The Perfect Match” the writer is focusing on a young working employee
whose life is managed by technology. In the story the character, named Sai, is assisted by a
ear piece that is linked to his phone. This little earpiece assists Sai in all day decisions. It
decides what Sai must eat, wakes him up and even choses Sai’s dates for him. Later in the
story Sai realizes that he makes a lot of decisions based on Tilly’s (the earpiece) advice. As it
progresses he realizes that he would’ve made a lot of his decisions differently if it wasn’t for
the influence caused by Tilly. This results in inner conflict and raises the question of
dependence on technology. The story raises great awareness of how easy one’s life can
become dependent on technology and that we as humans should be very careful to not fully
rely and base all our decisions on technological baselines. It is easy to give in without even
realizing is as this short story indicates.
