Saying you don’t want a relationship when you’re a hopeless romantic is like saying you’re a bit peckish when in reality, you’re starving.
The point of Deuteronomy 6:4 is not to teach that “The LORD our God, the LORD is a mathematical singularity.” In the middle of Deuteronomy 6, that would be a bit out of the blue to say the least. Instead, Deuteronomy 6 is about God’s people having the Lord as the one object of their affections: he is the only one worthy of them, and they are to love him alone with all their heart, soul and strength (Deut 6:5). In fact, the word for “one” in Deuteronomy 6:4 really doesn’t convey “mathematical singularity” at all well. The word is also used, for example, in Genesis 2:24, where Adam and Eve - two person - are said to be one.
