I guess itís less about caring what others think
And more about shedding my preconceptions re: what types of artists can qualify as my absolute favorites. But yeah I agree that caring less and less about validation and attention is one of the highlights of growing older. Actually being ignored when youíre trying to communicate can still suck IMO but it depends on the context (and whether weíre talking about communicating online vs IRL).
Is the person youíre recommending music to a ladyfriend by any chance? Donít mean to pry- just remember you recently mentioning giving the dating apps another try.
