Trying to make your ex want you, is like trying to make them eat a pickle.
"Eat this pickle."
"Go on eat it, it's delicious."
"No thanks, I don't want it."
"It's a better pickle. It's been improved."
"I just don't want it!"
"I don't understand why you won't eat it.
"I ate one before, and it gave me indigestion."
"Come on, give it a chance. It won't give you indigestion this time."
"You're really starting to annoy me now!"
"Why don't you realise how much this pickle wants you to eat it. Just give it a try. Is that too much too ask?"
"Yes, it is! Shut up! Go away!"
