Dating
is
a cesspool of insecurity
no wonder
single people
look longingly at
happy-relationships-where-you-don't-have-to-speculate
if the good-night kiss on date-01
was too long
or if
calling him-in-the-morning
is a bad idea
and if you have violated
the rigidly-unspoken-but-everyone-knows-how-sacred rules
of non-platonic interaction
like the three sms-limit
or how-to-most-innocuously-stalk-you
on facebook
or how many bases
to cross, and when
what-to-say
what-to-feel (or not to feel, as is most appropriate)
what-to-do-if-things-get-complicated
as they always do.
