You might be tempted to smooth out the edges of your personality and play it nice and safe today, but why give in to this temptation? If you put too much emphasis on not being offensive, irritating, or confusing, how are you going to challenge anyone? Stick to your true ideas, and don’t worry if some people just don’t get it. They’re not supposed to anyway. You’ve got a targeted audience, so speak to that group and only that group. You can’t be popular with everyone, so why waste your time trying?
Instant gratification won’t come to you today. Love isn’t a fast-food restaurant. Real relationships take time to establish themselves, grow, and evolve. Rushing the process could ruin your chances at happiness.
It’s all about planning when it comes to the two of you, whether it’s planning for the next five minutes or the next five years. The extra effort you put into your tandem agenda pays off big time now.
