Trying to force chemistry
You hate when it happens. You meet somebody who is phenomenal on paper. They check all of your boxes. They have a look that you like. They’re social. They’re smart. They’re successful. They want kids. It goes on and on but you just aren’t getting those butterflies. You don’t feel that pull to be near them – to kiss them or more. Maybe they even kissed you and the feeling was just…wack. But dammit they check all of those boxes, so you go on more and more dates, hoping chemistry will occur. It is worth it to try a few dates to see if that spark can come up when the compatibility is there, but if it’s just not working after weeks or months—move on.
