My readership demands more posts about my romantic life. There are two reasons why I haven't posted often on this subject. For one, there hasn't been much to post! For two, I'm pretty sure I'll be rebuked for some of my thinking in this area of life.
For instance, in the past I have kept an unwritten (usually) list 4 or 5 girls that I have some level of interest in. Despite this, I feel I am very focused on 1 girl at a time. My female friends don't usually buy this, but the above picture helps me to illustrate my position.
Finding a girl is like searching for the right puzzle piece. The best way to find the exact piece I'm looking for is to gather a handful of pieces that look like they may match the original piece (representing me) and analyze them one at a time. In this way, I am able to place all my attention on 1 piece, while still having 4 or 5 more on the radar as possibilities. This is nothing like liking a handful of girls at the same time. It is simply realistic. If there was only 1 girl on the radar I wouldn't ask her on a date, I'd ask her to marry me.
Now where it gets complicated, and where the analogy falls short, is in the fact that the original piece (me) isn't completely defined yet. I am still not exactly sure what my edges are like, let alone how exactly they'd fit with those of another. Because of this, a piece I already focused on for a time and placed back on the table may end up being worth another look.
At the moment, as always, I am focused on 1 while other pieces remain on the radar. This, in my opinion, shouldn't make the 1 mad (though I've learned that girls ON the list prefer not to know the list exists, haha. The girls in the above pic look suspicious of each other) nor does it mean I like more than 1 girl at a time. It's simply a realistic and efficient way of putting these pieces together.
