When we have the unfortunate situation of falling for someone who simply is too popular and out-of-reach, it should not take too long for us to get to the point where we should plead “no contest” and back out of the game entirely.

What may have seemed to us as deeply meaningful gestures imbued with possibilities for reciprocation might have been just a walk in the park casual and charming manner which they are accustomed to treating their adoring fans.

When we see that there are simply too many people vying for their attention and that they are only dishing out token efforts for our wholehearted bids for attention, we cannot help but be realistically discouraged and hopefully this leads to taking ourselves out of the running for our own good.
