Does it love you back?
Have you ever been in a relationship where you were clearly more invested than your crush? You obsessed, you pined, you tried your hardest to act cool when he called. And every now and then, it was good. Mostly, though, your unrequited love just made you feel bad about yourself. Sound familiar? You drive across town to get the very best cupcake available, you post an adoring photo of your special moment together on Instagram, and you savor your treat with contentment and excitement. You give that cupcake your best. But then what? Does it return your affections, or are you left feeling ashamed, gross, and taken for granted? And the worst part — do you go back again the next day and hope it will somehow be different? Do you obsess about it, convincing yourself that surely there's some way you can make it work? You want so badly to have your cake and eat it too (literally), but just like that crush who continues to brush you off, that cupcake isn't invested in your well-being. You deserve better. Sure, kale doesn't make your heart skip a beat the same way in the beginning, but it also doesn't leave you feeling worse about yourself after you hook up. Think about it.
