Having a few laughs during the start of the date will help relieve your mutual nerves and let more of your true colors show during the date. Don't Pretend A lot of people who consider their being alone as torture tend to pretend to be someone else first month in a relationship. They start fights over small things that seem really big to them, and can even become manipulative and controlling. Not only did that lead to some awkward run-ins, but it also made me resent my beloved haunts.
What I'm comfortable with and looking for fluctuates based on my lifestyle, my support system, my ambitions, and the chemistry between my date and I.
