To adore or be adored?
Miss Piggy and Kermit.
One of the most well-know great romances of all time, it is sadly incredibly unbalanced. That pig gets her bacon in a bundle whenever her lily pad loving amphibian hops in the room ... but her somewhat aggressive devotion never seems mirrored in his wide plastic eyes.
(Cruel, Henson, cruel.)
Ideally, in a relationship the feelings are mutual and as close to equal as possible ... but in reality one always loves the other more.
So I wonder, is it better to be with someone that makes you feel like the luckiest sucker in the world ... like .... how is it that such a hot potato would find its way into your lap? (All the while knowing they don't feel quite as steamy about you.)
OR, is it better to be with someone who lights up like a trucker's high beam in your rear view window when you walk in the room. Some one who makes you feel like you're on a pedestal, so much so that you can't help but look down at them?
