Low-brow culture like reality television and slapstick movies are satisfying sometimes, but right now your heart and soul need exposure to a higher level of art. Take a chance and stream some classical music for the day. Let your mind process music in a new way. Visual art will be very stimulating, and your aesthetic sensibilities are in tune with your intellect. If you widen your creative interests, you’ll increase your curiosity for sophisticated things.
Looks aren’t everything, you know. Even if you’re not totally turned on by this person’s physical appearance, give them a chance. Once you get to know what’s going on underneath, you won’t give this superficial stuff a second thought.
Go on a fact-finding mission and get to the bottom of something that’s been puzzling you. Recruit your partner to join you, and have fun playing super sleuths together.
You’re becoming a prisoner of your own head. Intellectualizing about how you got into this mess is fine, but don’t go overboard. It ultimately won’t help your numbers.
