Dating is can be so hectic, worse than that boss who keeps giving you hell but you sort of need the job and she can be sweet sometimes so you stay. 

But the hardest thing in dating especially in the modern world is to differentiate the good people from the bad, to find an actual healthy relationship and frankly, to not end up embarrassing yourself by falling for some girl or guy who’s just not that into you.
