So, I turned off my dating profile (again), shut down all new options and then, purely for scientific purposes (only as a journalistic sacrifice for this blog, of course), signed up for a 3-month class on how to fucking date.
Class one revealed this particularly shocking revelation: if someone's not right for you, you're not right for them either.
Yup. There shouldn't be any guilt or shitty feelings because it goes either way. If you *both* don't mutually feel it, then it's not IT. Yeah, I know. You're astounded. I'll keep you posted on any further enlightening surprises.
