Do you believe in love at first sight or should I walk by again? The person in this video requires love and admiration. She is feeling impatient waiting for a drop of essential oil and talks herself through it but in the end it comes out quickly. She requires fairness in her relationships stating, “I’ll go to you and sometimes you have to come to me.” She talks about her discomfort, fear and uncertainty around attending dinner parties, assuming rejection and not trusting her relationships. She wishes anxiety and relational issues allowed her to socialize in pubs. She gets a job at The Keg as a hostess and unofficial emotional support person. Plated Keg food flies through the air. Restaurant screens show us a special episode of Survivor. She’s just there as others compete. Hopefully her presence is comforting or of value in some way. She imagines a land before time.
