As I sit here, staring out the window into the vinyards I was thinking back to a piece of the movie Funny Poeple and how I was able to relate to the woman who wanted to leave her husband. Anyway...my point here is. Relationships are just like jobs. You are trying so hard to make an impression, you work hard at getting that job, the job here would be getting the girl. Once you get that job, you work really hard at getting the promotion. The promotion in this case is possibly moving in, but once you move in and you have that promotion its all good and dandy. You reached your goal and you don't really have anything much to aspire to because you figure you have what you want and you got what you need. Little did you know you are pretty much letting your boss down because you're set right.
Well, if you boss would have known your ass was going to settle I'm sure they would not have hired you. Your boss wants you to keep that motivation and strive forward and keep looking forward to your job and your position, this case...your relationship.
Why is that men alike women try so hard to get "in" and once you get what you want you just stop. You show one face at the very beginning doing all you can to charm the hell out of your girl/boy and then once you are in a relationship its over. No more dates, no more excitement, no more adventure, it's all gone. It's like all the sparks died. Maybe that's why I try to find a spark in someone, since my light is pretty much burnt out.
Anyway, and just like a job, when you know you are fucking up and you know that you are in trouble or you have that gut feeling that you are about to get fired or replace then you get your engines going and then you try to fix the problems. You try to make up for all the lost time and all the slacking off. But only when you know you are at risk of losing your job. In this case, when you fear you are about to get dumped. All of a sudden you feel like taking her out on dates, all of a sudden you want to travel, dine, and have fun! Do you really think your boss is gonna put up with that shit, only so you can work your way in again, feel safe and slack off again!? NOPE! It's like they give you a warning, a second warning, a final warning, you get suspended and then your fired. I think men alike women, shouldn't even get a warning, I think the warning is just a sign that the relationship is probably not going to work out and maybe it should be more of a red flag to you and you should dump his/her ass hence...FIRE your employee.
Next time around, come screenings and interviews be sure not to make the same mistake twice!
You see how relationships are like jobs?!
