6. Faking It
No, I'm not talking about faking an orgasm, but faking it through the whole date: fake laughter, fake interest, all of it. Faking it is a real fear — it's also exhausting AF. 

How to conquer this fear: Step outside the situation and realize just how comical this whole scenario is going to be when you relay it to your friends later. Also, you just might discover you have some acting skills you didn't even know existed.
