The whole dating/courting/flirting/seduction/cat & mouse game seems like a huge geocache hunt.
You try to follow all these ambiguous & often flat-out confusing clues & signals, which can take you through some very interesting & creepy places. And you end up everywhere EXCEPT where the actual geocache is. Or they put the clues in the form of a puzzle & you have to try to figure it out. And then some people are jerks & put in false clues to mess with you.
Some people are REALLY jerks & don't leave anything there at all... again, just to mess with you... so you waste all your time searching for something that ain't even there & looking like a blithering fool to anyone who happens to be watching you.
Or someone actually leaves a real cache but someone else swoops in & takes it before you get there.
Some of them have GPS coordinates so it looks like it's gonna be easy. But then you realize that they wrote down the wrong coordinates or that your GPS device (intuition) needs to be re-calibrated.
The good news is, there are, truly, some amazing and valuable geocaches out there. But they're rare & ya gotta go through a lotta duds and blood, sweat, & tears to find them!
So take heart! I thing there's a good one right... around... here... somewhere.......
