I treat relationships the same way I do movies.
That’s already a bad start.
I like to know the ending of a movie before it even begins. Because who wants to put that much time into a crappy story? I get just because the ending is crappy, it doesn’t make the entire story crappy. There might be some great scenes here and there. But to me if the ending sucks, that messes up the whole movie. Now, I’m disappointed. I spent 2 hours and $15 on some crap story. It’s not worth it.
Imagine if you’re watching this movie and it’s building up, it’s getting good, and out of nowhere it cuts off. Black screen. What happened? What happened to Billy Bob? It just went black screen. You have no ending. You have no closure. Now what? If I knew that I would have never started watching it. (my actual previous relationship)
See where I’m getting at? I don’t see the point of starting a relationship if I don’t see it going anywhere. If it’s not going to have a good ending, what’s the point? That’s how I treat relationships. It’s probably not a good thing, but it is what it is. In other words, I don’t date.
