When watching this video of a cat flying on a plane wing, I immediately thought of how it is a metaphor for dating. Think about it: you’re out there, single and looking, and hoping for a love connection. Your heart is flapping in the wind, terrified that you will fall in love only to be hurt. And crash into a palm tree or a truck transporting kitty litter to Walmart, or worse – an ex at a bar who looks as gorgeous as ever while you look like a fur ball who just flew on a plane wing.
Sometimes you meet someone. You think: he’s “the one.” This love ride feels freeing, like you’re flying in the wind, just like this pussy cat. But sometimes, lies, confusion, and shocking surprises are revealed and hit you at your core. Much like the wind hits this poor pussy cat in the face!
But you hold on. Just like that kitty cat, you don’t let go. You push forward and hope for a safe landing. That one day a love that is healthy, unconditional and reciprocal will find you, and that the crazy, unexpected yet liberating ride called dating will be but a memory.
