I give up on dating and relationships
Cool, cool, you'll just hang out and watch their love blossom. If true love is dead, how are you supposed to resurrect it?Does anyone know where the law stands re: marrying inanimate objects?The assignment was to compose a fictitious piece through extrapolating on one of two statements: “Love Makes the World Go Around,”or “Money Makes the World Go Around.” Being the idealistic and naive 13 year old, I wrote a piece that I still remember, about the year 2770, where a paleontologist discovers some wonderfully rare remains of the tyrannosaurus rex, and realizes that because there is not enough compassion left in the world to care about these remains, that he cannot do anything with his discovery.The lack of love, conflated with a healthy disregard for compassion, was what drove the story.Silence is probably the best response, but you can imagine filling the screen with middle finger emojis, if you like.
I’ll contend that ending that particular relationship is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, because you really don’t know what kind of a man you’re dealing with, until you see the way they treat someone they consider their non-equal, or when you are made to deal with their neurotic obsession, not with who you are as a human being, but of the way you look.You're really supposed to get up, get dressed, and go out to meet someone you might not even like? If someone tells you to "put yourself out there" one more time... Luckily, dating feels less strange as you get used to it.
