Tonight, tonight

I have my second date with "E" tonight, and I think we all know how I feel about it at this point. We have had a few phone conversations and I have usually been bored (except for one conversation when I had a little too much to drink before the conversation). Anyway, I mentioned to someone about this upcoming date and how I get the impression that "E" is really looking forward to it and might be kind of into me, which isn't too great because I am really not feeling into him at all. That's when my friend mentioned something that, while I have heard before, I do not agree with. Basically she said that my whole situation is a good thing because the person you are in a relationship with should always like you more than you like them. I think its a little ridiculous! I mean, I want to like the person I am dating, I want to feel passionate about them and I want them to feel the same about me. I realize that no relationship is always 50-50, but to remain with someone just because they like you is not a good thing either. And that I can say from experience, since I was with someone for quite sometime and the only reason I stayed was because he liked me. And I liked that feeling, but then I realized that it wasn't enough. What do you all think about this?

How did it go??? I'm dying over here! Your neighbor is wrong-one partner shouldn't like the other more or less! Ideally, you'd both be completely enamored of eachother...right?
