My experience with relationships:
1. You like someone more than they like you, and you spend your time and energy trying to convince them that they like you as much as you like them.
2. Someone likes you more than you like them and they spend a whole lot of time and energy trying to convince you that you like them as much as they like you.
3. You and someone else immediately like each other, you get along well, yet the relationship remains strictly platonic.
Ugh. My life is a mess.
