Dating is like interviewing for jobs...
You never know what they are really looking for
You don't know if they have already chosen someone and they are just interviewing you for fun
You don't know if you will actually like them
You spend hours getting yourself presentable and prepared for the big interview.
Dating is like buying a house...
You only get about 80% of what you really want
You have to have a list of what you want in a house
You might sacrifice a lot for location
You don't know if you will like the neighbors
You look constantly, getting your hopes up with each showing or contract
It's scary putting all your eggs in one very expensive basket
