Like any other dating write-ups, the dates can go really well, or they can be awkward disasters.
In the case of these two 24-year-olds, things didn’t work out as planned.
Any time I've ever been on a date with a guy who could take me somewhere amazing that I had no idea existed, it's been cause for a small celebration with balloons.4. I will say though that if you cook for us, we will be sooooo hyped. We're incredibly passionate about everything all the time.

We're like that Eminem song: You only get one shot. We live in a city of go-getters and we most likely are one ourselves, so you better be able to make a plan. It'll easily take me 30 to 45 minutes to get there, and that's if all the trains haven't mysteriously shut down because of construction no one believes will actually ever fix anything, but that's a whole other thing. Which means we probably don't want to just "come over and hang out" for the majority of our first few dates.13.
If you fuck up with us once, there are a billion freaking single people in this city, so if you're a jerk but you're hot, you're in no way the last hot person we'll ever meet. Once we're into you, we will make you a priority over all of our 12,000 other priorities.
