Let’s say you get lucky enough to make the beginning of a connection. Problem solved, right? Now maybe you have a girlfriend? Well, it’s not that simple. You’ve got to shovel constant effort and maintenance into that relationship. You’ve got to worry about impressing her enough, each and every time, to be able to get another date with her. This means you’ll have to spend a lot more money taking her out to dinner, buying her cards and flowers, and doing other things intended to pass the ongoing audition so you can always secure that next date. Fail at any time, disappoint her in any way, and it’s over for you. Suddenly she won’t answer your texts or your calls and she’s always busy if she picks up by mistake. Then you’ve got nothing to show for all the time and money you’ve spent trying to make this all happen.
