Timing is everything, and that’s never more applicable than in a romantic situation. Luckily, you’ve got great timing right now, so if you have been waiting to work up the nerve to ask someone out, you’ll suddenly start to feel a lot braver about the idea. You should take a philosophical view of the proposition and not worry so much whether they’ll accept your invitation or not. It’s sort of beside the point, isn’t it? Just the act of being so vulnerable is a big enough victory.
Show your fun-loving side to someone you think is worthy of the attention. You should get back twice as much as you give as long as you can keep the moment from getting too serious. Just have fun with it!
If you’ve met your intellectual match in your partner, good for you. If not, it’s no big deal, providing you seek out some extra stimulation for your brain at times like this.
It seems silly at first to respect the opinions of those who have failed, but they actually have a lot of hard lessons to share with you. You could save yourself a bit of pain and even more money by listening to what they have to say.
