I didn't spend on one of my credit cards for almost a year, the raised my limit by $1000, Bay area FasTrak gives me like $5/mo to come back to SF, Netflix just gave me two free months because I canceled in June-I wonder if I ignore Ryan Gosling more often it will have the same effect.
I have been ignoring him, Jake Gyllenhaal, Colin Farrell, etc.. for years now-come on boys! ;p
I mean, seems like the more you ignore something, the more it comes to you...right? Is all of life like a bad boyfriend? I gave up TV writing last summer to work on my YA book series, and BOOM! TV writing job falls in my lap. I give up looking for work and jobs come out of the wood work. It's really interesting how things like this happen.
I swear I am now getting credit increases left, right and center because I am not spending-shouldn't it be the other way around? I mean the reason I am not using your credit card is one of two reasons, 1) I can't afford it and 2) (The more likely reason) there is nothing in your store that I want to buy-get some new inventory and thanks for the bump.
So do I dare try this theory out on men, say Ryan Gosling-I only use him because I just met him 2x at Starbucks-maybe he is stalking me!! Hahahaha totally kidding, but you get the point.
I can't do this though when it comes to real life, if I like someone enough to take away from my busy schedule it's because I like them, I can't play the game, even though I know it seems to work-for everything. That said, if I take time to talk to someone it's because I like them, if I am ignoring someone it's because I don't want to talk to them-but this whole phenomenon is of course just interesting to me.
So what else do I want in life? Hrm???
This reminds me of that line from French Kiss.
"Happy-smile. Sad-frown. Use the corresponding face for the corresponding emotion."
But it seems the more you turn away from something the more it wants you.
