24. Don't Forget There's An Actual Person Across From You
First dates often times get this whole fairy tale rom-com complex attached to them, where the person across from you might be this perfect person you've been searching for and ohmygod you must do your best to impress them and - stop. It's a real person across from you. They have quirks and faults and are also probably super nice and impossibly interesting, but also are total goofballs and probably don't pick up wet towels from floors because we all have faults. So just bring the whole situation back down to earth. They're not this amazing rom-com character that's leagues ahead of you. Bring it back down and enjoy the person across from you.
