The Dating Game

Oh, this is the part where we pretend that I don’t want what you want.  Because I do, actually. I want you to kiss me. I want you to touch me.  I want you to want me.

But I also want it frequently, and for that you have to feel like you’ve earned it.  You have to feel like you’ve somehow convinced me.

You have to value what I offer – and that’s just the thing.

People put little value to what’s free or “easy.”

So it’s going to cost you.  It’s going to cost you time.  Energy. Attention.

You’ll have to work for it.

And I will, too.  I have to work at waiting for what I already know is both our end game.  It’s a game where, when played correctly, everybody wins. I say let’s just skip to the end, but you like the process. It’s what you want.

And I want to give you what you want.

Oh, but this is the part where we pretend that I don’t want what you want.
