Relationships Are A Lot Like TV Shows....


Relationships are a lot like TV shows. Sometimes, the pilot episode aka first date is so magical that we sign on for an entire season aka serious relationship and halfway through it...we realize that all of the good stuff happened in the pilot.

Other times, the pilot episode aka the first date is a little awkward but, still endearing so we give it another couple of episodes to see what happens...and BAM the rest of the season is awesome and you sign up for another 10 seasons aka marriage.

Alas, after awhile the show gets stale. The chemistry fades away to the point where cast and crew changes aka counseling and other things are not enough to keep the show going. It is difficult to let go of the show because it has been with us for so long.

We grew up during the show aka relationship/marriage but, it's best for posterity aka our sanity to cancel the show aka relationship/marriage and move on.
After the show is cancelled aka breakup/divorce the leading man aka significant other moves on and signs up to do another pilot episode aka new relationship. We don't have any prospects for a new show aka relationship and it burns us up that our former leading man has a new gig.

We start to pine and long for our past episodes together...conveniently forgetting about those terrible seasons. So, we go to the actor's trailer of our former leading man or he comes to ours and promises for the future are made.

Then, we wake up and realize that if we go back to our former leading man that our life will be one big re-run with tired dialogue and no opportunity for growth....unless  we decide that we are worth more than having our episodes air at 2 am on Tuesday mornings.
