Applying for credit is like dating

I'm sitting here waiting for the agent to get back to me to see if my CLI request is granted. This kind of feels like dating. Will they like me enough? How far will they go with me ect... And then... the feeling for relief when I get an approval.  Or, on the other side of the coin, there is sometimes rejection.
