The chase.

My aunt once told me: "Love is like a child; if you chase it, it'll run. But if you run it'll chase you, so keep running." -Merina Vo

It's a simple concept we all knew in the back of our minds, but the light bulb didn't turn on until you hear it out of someone else's mouth.

A friend and I were talking about this over the past weekend. No one likes to admit it, but when you're talking, dating, or in a relationship with someone, everyone loves the chase. Most of us (except I) have stable lives, nothings new, nothings changing, it's the same old routine day in and day out. But with that someone(s) (plural for some of you out there) the chase is what gives your day some excitement.

The concept is easy: the more available a person is, the less appealing they are.

Just like when the Wii first came out. There were only so many that was in stock at each store, and people knew that so there were always lines out the door for em. Low supply = higher demand. Kind of like when a person seems to be unattainable, you get intrigued and no one likes to lose, so you make it a goal until they're your's. The funny thing about that is you only want something when you don't have it, but as soon as you got it, the feelings change.

Another reason why I didn't to get back with Thinh, I was tired of running. 5 1/2 years of running is tiring. When you're with someone for that long wouldn't you think you'd get to stand still and just be happy together already? --yeah you'd think so.

We're all in it just for the thrill of it. Always leave them wanting more.
