A relationship analogy.
"A Word at the Right Time" by Vanna1

My sandals clap off the pathway as I walk toward the backyard patio. I recline into a chair, sullen. My mother is tending to her flowers.

"Mom, why do I drive men away?"

She pauses... "My rose bush is the highlight of my garden. The aroma and vision are spectacular. Yet, only a patient gardener can prune it, on account of its thorns. Those who don't want to work for it, don't plant rose bushes."

Just in case you missed the point: Beautiful and successful relationships take effort, and some people don't want to put in the work.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
