Relationships can be tough, in that you’ve got to convince another person that you’re worth spending time with. That’s really the biggest hurdle, and many of us fail spectacularly at it. But no matter how bad your romantic prospects are, bear in mind that they could always be worse. Allow Ted and Jeff to illustrate.
AT LEAST YOU’RE NOT BEING MIND CONTROLLED.
Maybe you’ve been unlucky in love lately. If so, we’re sorry. But at least you haven’t had love from other people’s relationships secretly pumped into your mind with an alien device, causing you to grow infatuated with your stalker under false pretenses. See? Your romantic life is looking up already.
AT LEAST YOU DIDN’T PROPOSE TO YOUR PARTNER LIKE THIS.
When it comes to dating, you can’t overestimate the importance of timing. You also can’t have worse timing than Jeff does on this hike with Linda. It’s scientifically impossible. So take heart: If your next first date goes badly, at least you didn’t waste a paycheck on a mariachi band.
