Be Willing to Walk Away

The dating arena is like a car dealership: you have to be able to walk away if you aren’t getting the deal you’re looking for.

Easy enough, right?


Yes, it/he/she seems glossy and new, with perfect angles or curves, smells amazing, and you’re already dreaming of the adventures you two will take.

Sure, it/he/she doesn’t have all the features you’re looking for. But you can’t have it all, right? You’ve already been told that you’re too picky, that you’ll never find the right one at this rate, that you’ll be destined to walk the earth alone if you don’t settle for something, for heaven’s sake. For. Heaven’s. Sake.
