Of late I've thought of the human condition of expecting a different outcome when performing the same task. This is evident in many activities but my thoughts were specific to relationships.
I knew this woman once who wondered why she wasn't meeting a good guy. When asked where she'd been meeting guys the answer was at a bar. I don't doubt its possible to meet a good guy there but I mentioned that after a number of failed attempts that maybe she should try something different. She didn't.
I am not immune from this. I have done the same act repeatedly and expected something different. I've tried different tactics but had the same result. Which left me thinking that maybe it's just me.
