All you can do is roll the dice when it comes to love and pray that the person you fall for is the same person that catches you in the end. Dating is so hard now because so many people falsely project these ideas to the other person that they want something real, when deep down inside all most people really want is something “real quick”. No one wants to work towards investing in a future anymore. Now what you have is a bunch of short term people taking advantage of long term people’s desires. And the whole time while you are sharing what seems to be common interests with someone, in hindsight the two of you couldn’t be more further apart. Now it’s like everybody wants to take something from you and leave your heart with the scraps. And it shouldn’t be like that.
