Calculated Investment

Dating a sweet guy
Pretty as a butterfly
Smells like apple pie
Looking good enough to eat
They all want to sink their teeth
Since I am also sweet(er)
We agree to non-compete
Our signatures on the sheet

Having engaged in a cost-benefit-psycho analysis
That ends without paralysis
The new relationship narrative

Lately, I feel the need to apply the same kind of deliberate planning and financial/risk assessment activities I do at work to dating.

I should be able to apply the time value of money principle to my potential relationship. “Am I going to get a good return on my (time) investment, or am I going to lose my shirt?”

This is how I feel!
