If you’ve never been on a terrible first date, consider yourself one lucky soul. But if you’ve fooled yourself into thinking that it’s not you, it’s them, you might want to retract that thought. First dates aren’t a “normal” – you’re both trying your hardest to be the best damn version of yourself possible.
Many of us forget how to be ourselves because we’re too busy thinking about how not to appear nervous. We’re too concerned about asking the right questions, paying too much attention to how we eat our food, or wondering if we’re charming enough, that things can easily go to shit. First dates notoriously go wrong more often than they go right, and these tweets at least help to explain why.
